Cervicogenic Dizziness from Whiplash


Dizziness is a word used to describe a feeling of false sense of motion or spinning, lightheadedness, and disorientation, an uncomfortable feeling that continuously affects approximately 11-28% of adults.

Cervicogenic dizziness originates from complications on the cervical spine or neck. The neck, as the rest of the spine, has an important function in the body’s postural control. The neck is surrounded by muscle spindles, sensory receptors that primarily function to detect changes in the length of the muscles but also convey a variety of nerve impulses and reflexes to stabilize the head, and posture as well as sustaining the proper function of the eyes. For individuals who suffer from chronic dizziness, getting a diagnosis for possible neck complications and starting treatment can help restore the body’s sensory transmissions and reduce their symptoms of chronic dizziness.

In a 2008 study, researchers analyzed the results of individuals who experienced chronic dizziness as a result of a neck complication, who received chiropractic treatment such as spinal adjustments and manual manipulations. The study showed that individuals receiving chiropractic care for their symptoms experienced improvements in reduced dizziness frequency. These individuals also showed significant decrease in the severity of their dizziness and neck pain. In addition, two other studies showed that spinal adjustments and manual manipulations improved blood circulation in the arteries of the neck, while another two studies also found that chiropractic treatment improved an individual’s balance.

The symptoms of chronic dizziness, often triggered or worsened by standing up, walking, or moving the head, are most common in individuals with headache-associated disorders, neck complications, and whiplash-type injuries. Trauma from an injury or underlying conditions in the cervical spine may often interrupt the body’s muscle spindles, or sensory receptors,  causing dizziness.
