Oxford Dizziness and Neck Pain Care at Satterwhite Chiropractic

Dizziness is a problem. Alone, dizziness can be upsetting, but it can also affect balance and contribute to falls. Dizziness with associated cervical spine disc degeneration can be a problem for older folks. Satterwhite Chiropractic shares new research about chronic neck pain and its relationship to dizziness as well as the role Oxford chiropractic care contributes in relief of neck pain and oftentimes related dizziness.

CERVICAL SPINE DISC DEGENERATION AND DIZZINESS

Patients with chronic neck pain due to cervical degenerative disease often experience dizziness as well as neck pain. Many already-published studies, both clinical and basic science, detail the relationship of cervical disc degeneration and dizziness. A new study indicated that cervicogenic general dizziness was diagnosed in 89% of these patients. Improper neck postures over long periods of time may contribute when there is existing degenerative cervical disc disease. Men and women have different triggers for their dizziness. For example, farming, gardening, and weeding may initiate general dizziness, especially in women who are older. (1) Surgeons reporting on a new surgical approach to relieving chronic neck pain explained that current clinical and immunohistochemical studies strongly indicated that chronic neck pain and intractable dizziness arose from degenerated cervical spine discs. The dizziness happened with only cervical disc degeneration alone without cervical radiculopathy or myelopathy. (2) Such degenerative disc disease in the neck also has been found to be accompanied by inflammation, specifically inflammatory cytokines that trigger mechanoreceptors like the Ruffini corpuscles in degenerated discs leading to dizziness. The good news: a majority of cervical spine disc disease patients and related dizziness find conservative treatment to be effective for them. (3) Satterwhite Chiropractic is the home for conservative chiropractic care of Oxford neck pain and degenerated cervical discs.

CHIROPRACTIC CONSERVATIVE CARE FOR DIZZINESS

An Australian study of chiropractic care of neck pain patients who also had dizziness found that chiropractic is often used by these patients to manage their neck pain. One in five people over age 70 years experienced neck pain. 57.3% of chiropractors reported that the neck pain and associated dizziness was moderately responsive to their chiropractic conservative care. (4) Satterwhite Chiropractic utilizes the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management in treating cervical disc degeneration and its related Oxford neck pain.
