Neck Pain / Cervical Dizziness
Cervicogenic dizziness and balance problems are brought on because of neck pain, stiffness, and a lack of head range of motion.
Patients complain of dizziness, vertigo, balance problems, and difficulty walking with head movements during activities of daily living. Patients often complain of dizziness and balance deficits with head movements and varying head positioning.
Since your neck muscles are also involved in telling your brain where your head is moving through space, like your inner ear, cervicogenic dizziness is often mistaken for an inner ear problem. Patients continue to complain of dizziness and balance problems even after being treated with traditional methods.
Neck pain and stiffness need to be treated correctly to resolve cervicogenic dizziness and balance problems. The key is to know what to look for when evaluating patients for cervicogenic dizziness, and we can help.
