The structure and function of the upper cervical spine may well contribute to dizziness. Issues with upper cervical spine ligaments and muscles may contribute to cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such problems may cause confusion for the proprioception system managed in part by the vestibular nucleus. Alterations in the ligaments and muscles may initiate abnormal reactions that lead to dizziness. (1) Satterwhite Chiropractic welcomes many Oxford neck pain patients with dizziness.


Cervicogenic dizziness is defined 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 could the link be? Cervical muscles connect and interact with the vestibular, visual, and higher centers to generate useful proprioception, the awareness of body position and movement. When such proprioception is changed due to neck pain, the dizziness may arise as well. One new case report of a female aged 24 years with cervicogenic dizziness and neck pain reported improvement of both with chiropractic care.
