Chiropractic Benefits Baton Rouge Neck Pain and Dizziness

January 28, 2020

Dizziness and neck pain. Are they linked? Science may not have the correlating research to say yes conclusively, but if a Baton Rouge neck pain patient has dizziness, it doesn’t really count what the research says. There is neck pain and dizziness! Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers takes care of Baton Rouge neck pain with chiropractic care, and associated dizziness may be relieved too.


A new paper just came out discussing a potential neck pain and dizziness connection. It makes sense. Cervical spine muscles in the neck connect with vestibular (inner ear/balance center), visual and other centers that help with proprioception, our sense of position and movement of the body. When proprioception is off because of neck issues, disorientation and disequilibrium may transpire. The term “cervicogenic dizziness” describes dizziness and associated neck pain in patients with cervical spine issues. There is no one specific test a doctor does that says that a patient has “cervicogenic dizziness.” However, a patient who had dizziness and neck pain was treated with chiropractic adjustment and ultrasound therapy found relief in this study. (1) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers calls any Baton Rouge neck pain and dizziness patients to stop by for chiropractic treatment!


Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers uses a unique type of chiropractic treatment in Cox® Technic. Cox® Technic is gentle distraction, no quick motions or cracking. It is very well accepted. For patients who have spinal stenosis due to a disc herniation accompanied by arm pain, 15 treatments over 10 weeks alleviated the pain, and the relief was present still at 2 years’ follow-up. (2) It is no wonder that chiropractic patients are willing to pay $37.32 out of pocket to manage their current state of neck pain relief. (3) An Australian study looked at older adults with neck pain who went to a chiropractor. One in 5 people over 70 years old have neck pain. 45.5% of them experiences neck pain. 31.3% of them also reported headache. 57.3% of chiropractors stated that their dizziness patients achieved moderate relief. Migraine sufferers required quite a few more visits than patients with headache to get relief. (4) There is hope with Baton Rouge chiropractic care for neck pain, headache and dizziness at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers.


Chiropractors like your very own one at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers appreciate evidence-based recommendations for patient care. Uncomplicated neck pain as well as such with headache or radicular symptoms, “best practice” recommendations based on “best available scientific evidence” are chiropractic manipulation and multimodal care. An initial trial of 6 to 12 treatments is reasonable with a move from passive care to active care and self-care. (5) The Cox® Technic System of spinal pain management has a well-researched and documented treatment plan for neck pain relief.
