Feeling dizzy? It's not just an annoyance – it can significantly impact your quality of life. Many patients seeking Redwood City CA Upper Cervical Chiropractic for dizziness or vertigo relief know how frustrating life can be when you can’t keep your balance. But thankfully, a recent study offers promising news to people with dizziness related to your neck (a condition known as cervicogenic dizziness).

A study conducted at Khon Kaen University in Thailand focused on patients with non-traumatic cervicogenic dizziness, a common type of dizziness linked to neck problems. Participants who did specific self-exercises at home saw significant improvements in their symptoms and how dizziness affected their daily lives. These exercises included:

  • Muscle strengthening: Gentle movements to build up the neck muscles.
  • Mobilization exercises: Controlled neck movements to improve flexibility and range of motion.
  • Oculomotor training: Eye exercises to help the brain and eyes coordinate better, often used for dizziness.

The study found these exercises were safe and had no adverse side effects. While they didn't completely eliminate dizziness for everyone, the improvement was substantial enough to suggest self-exercise is a valuable tool for managing this condition.


What This Means for You

If you experience dizziness related to your neck, this research suggests a simple yet effective approach: regular, at-home exercises. Remember, it's crucial to consult with a healthcare professional to get an accurate diagnosis and create a personalized exercise plan.

The Upper Cervical Connection

At our Redwood City CA Upper Cervical Chiropractic practice, we specialize in a gentle, precise form of care that focuses on the top two bones in your neck. Misalignment in this area, even subtle ones, can affect nerve function, blood flow, and the delicate balance mechanisms of your inner ear – all of which can contribute to dizziness.

By correcting these misalignments, we often see a reduction in dizziness symptoms. When combined with the self-exercise strategies outlined in this new research, many patients experience even greater relief and improved quality of life.
