Dizziness can be upsetting. Dr. Butwell takes care of neck pain patients with dizziness seeking a cause and a solution. Georgetown chiropractic care of dizziness starts with a detailed examination to establish a potentially relieving treatment plan for dizziness related to spinal issues like Georgetown neck pain.


The structure and function of the upper cervical spine may perhaps bring on dizziness. Issues with upper cervical spine muscles and ligaments may impact cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such problems may produce confusion for the proprioception system controlled in part by the vestibular nucleus. Alterations in the ligaments and muscles may initiate abnormal reactions that lead to dizziness. (1) Dr. Butwell welcomes many Georgetown neck pain patients with dizziness.


Cervicogenic dizziness is explained as dizziness that happens in patients with neck pain. No specific test for cervicogenic dizziness is know, but patients with neck pain because of a cervical spine pathology who have dizziness present to doctors for help. What might the connection be? Cervical muscles connect and interact with the vestibular, visual, and higher centers to generate effective proprioception, the awareness of body position and movement. When this proprioception is altered with neck pain, the dizziness may arise too. One new case report of a female aged 24 years who reported cervicogenic dizziness and neck pain reported improvement of both with chiropractic care.

Linking dizziness and imbalance with neck pain not associated with any other disorders done via a careful examination is key to relieving care of cervicogenic dizziness. Manual therapy and vestibular rehabilitation succeeded in relieving pain for patients in a new report. (3) Dizziness may result from damage to the somatosensory system. Upper cervical spine manipulation was analyzed in patients with cervicogenic dizziness. In addition to a reduction in the intensity of the dizziness and pain, an increase in the range of motion toward the more restricted side and improved function were also reported.
