The function and structure of the upper cervical spine may well bring on dizziness. Issues with upper cervical spine muscles and ligaments may be a factor in cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such issues may produce confusion for the proprioception system controlled in part by the vestibular nucleus. Changes in the ligaments and muscles may initiate abnormal reactions that result in dizziness. (1) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation takes care of many Baton Rouge neck pain patients with dizziness.


Cervicogenic dizziness is defined as dizziness that occurs in patients with neck pain. No specific test for cervicogenic dizziness is know, but patients with neck pain due to a cervical spine pathology who have dizziness visit doctors for assistance. What could the link be? Cervical muscles connect and interact with the vestibular, visual, and higher centers to produce effective proprioception, the awareness of body position and movement. When this proprioception is changed due to neck pain, the dizziness may happen as well. One new case report of a 24-year-old woman who reported neck pain and cervicogenic dizziness reported improvement of both with chiropractic care.

Linking imbalance and dizziness with neck pain not associated with any other disorders revealed via a thorough examination is important to relief for 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 tested 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.
