Chiropractic Care in Malaysia for Cervicogenic Dizziness


Cervicogenic dizziness can lead to a sensation of room-spinning vertigo, nonspecific feelings of disequilibrium, unsteadiness or light-headedness. This is a result of abnormal afferent nervous input of the neck. The diagnosis of cervicogenic dizziness can only be made by ruling out other differential diagnoses for dizziness. Patients with cervicogenic dizziness usually present with a stiff neck, restricted range of motion in the neck, neck pain, headache, ringing in the ears, jaw pain and upper back pain. Chiropractic care in Malaysia can help to alleviate these signs and symptoms

Repetitive neck movement and posture can lead to the dysfunction of the cervical spine. This can cause an asymmetrical neck rotation and impaired proprioception input. Athletes who are involved in asymmetrical sports activity are more susceptible to cervicogenic dizziness. For example, competitive freestyle swimmers who always turn their head and neck towards the preferred side of breathing during the stroke are at a higher risk of developing neck problems.

The signs and symptoms of cervicogenic dizziness can be reproduced by neck movement and neck pain during physical examination of the cervical spine. Deep palpation of the neck muscles, especially the suboccipital muscles may cause neck pain that radiates into the temporal-parietal region in the head. The suboccipital region, transverse processes of C1 and C2, spinous processes of C2 and C3, levator scapulae, upper trapezius, splenius, rectus, and semi-spinalis muscles may be tender upon palpation and may reproduce the dizziness.
