Pins & Needles and Dizziness

dizzyThere are many causes of dizziness including problems in the neck. If the nerves at the top of the neck are involved dizziness can occur with neck motion and posture changes.

Due to the repetitive nature of many jobs and poor sitting posture undue stress can be applied to the joints in the neck leading to dizziness.

Not all types of dizziness can be treated by your Chiropractor but they can assess you and decide whether Chiropractic is suitable

How can chiropractic help?
Chiropractors are trained in diagnosing the cause of the dizziness using many tests to find the problem so we can treat it. Chiropractors use small force movements known as adjustments to the neck along with muscle relaxing techniques to treat the problem. By making the spine move properly and exercising the muscles that support the spine the dizziness can be reduced.

To help find that cause we offer:

  • A Private Consultation with the Doctor of Chiropractic
  • A Thorough Examination including Neurological, Orthopaedic & Blood Pressure Tests
  • X-Rays, if necessary
  • A Verbal Report of our Findings and thorough Explanation of the X-Rays

After which you should know more about your body and the problems you are experiencing than you ever have before. Whether you go ahead with treatment, as always, is entirely your decision.
