Dizziness with associated cervical spine disc degeneration can be a problem for older folks. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc shares new research about chronic neck pain and its link to dizziness as well as the role Fort Wayne chiropractic care plays 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 existing studies, both clinical and basic science, describe the relationship of cervical disc degeneration and dizziness. A recent study pointed out that cervicogenic general dizziness was diagnosed in 89% of such patients. Improper neck postures over long periods of time may contribute when there is existing degenerative cervical disc disease. Men and women have separate prompts for their dizziness. For example, farming, gardening, and weeding may initiate general dizziness, particularly in women who are older. (1) Surgeons reporting on a new surgical approach to relieving chronic neck pain pointed out that current clinical and immunohistochemical studies strongly suggested that chronic neck pain and intractable dizziness arose from degenerated cervical spine discs. The dizziness ensued with only cervical disc degeneration alone without cervical radiculopathy or myelopathy. (2) Such cervical spine degenerative disc disease also has been found to be accompanied by inflammation, specifically inflammatory cytokines that affect mechanoreceptors like the Ruffini corpuscles in degenerated discs resulting in dizziness. The good news: a majority of patients with cervical disc disease and related dizziness find conservative treatment to be effective for them.
