Neck Pain and Dizziness: The Unseen Connection

neck pain and dizziness

Have you ever noticed a lingering discomfort in your neck, a pain that doesn't seem to go away no matter what you do? Do you often get hit by dizzy spells, leaving you feeling unsteady and disoriented? If you have been experiencing neck pain and dizziness for some time, you ought to look into them more.  

Unknown to many, both dizzying spells and neck stiffness or pain are interconnected. They often happen hand in hand because of neck bone misalignments. Do you happen to know if you’ve had neck or head trauma in the past? 

Think a couple of months or years ago. It could have happened sometime during your childhood, like an intense headbutt during a football match. How about neck trauma from a car accident? If you’ve had these incidents before, you will definitely find our discussion super helpful in managing both your neck pain and dizzy spells.

Neck Bone Misalignments and Their Implications On Your Health

At the top of your spine sits the atlas bone, a ring-like structure cradling your skull's base. This bone plays a vital role in how our head moves and pivots, but when it's misaligned, it can trigger a cascade of issues. The most immediate one you'll notice is neck pain. However, you should also look out for other things like vestibular system dysfunction (dizziness and vertigo).

Notably, the health concerns that develop due to atlas subluxation happen due to the intricate interplay of nerves, muscles, and bones in the Upper Cervical area. When the atlas bone is out of place, it can put undue pressure on the surrounding nerves and disrupt the blood flow to your brain. This disruption can also increase risks for a plethora of other health concerns like headaches, back pain, and fibromyalgia. 

How Can Upper Cervical Care Help with Neck Pain and Dizziness?

Upper Cervical Care, particularly atlas bone adjustments, focuses on correcting these small but significant misalignments in your neck. By adjusting the atlas bone to its correct position, Upper Cervical Chiropractors can alleviate the pressure on the nerves and blood vessels, improving your neck pain and dizzy spells.

Remember, dizziness and vertigo are not just inconveniences; they're signals from your body that something is off. By addressing these symptoms with Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care, you can improve your overall health and prevent the onset of more serious conditions down the line.
