As a NUCCA chiropractor in Redwood City, CA, I help patients get relief from various conditions and symptoms. One of those is dizziness. Dizziness is a common symptom, and many things can cause it. If you are a person who has experienced dizziness following a head or neck injury, it can be related to an issue with the bones in the upper cervical spine (neck).
Seek the help of a doctor or a NUCCA chiropractor in Redwood City, CA if you think you may have received a concussion. It is one possible root cause why you experience dizziness.
Concussions are common in sports athletes. In 2018, Kevin Love of the Cleveland Cavaliers had to leave a game after banging heads with another player. Right after, he experienced a headache and felt dizzy. He then had to comply with the NBA protocol for head trauma that includes moving to a safe and quiet area.
Anyone can have a similar fate after a car accident or even tripping and falling. If you have a history of head or neck injury that may be contributing to your dizziness, I recommend that you turn to a professional right away.
When you have a blow to the head, it can affect your neck too. It is often a common reason for a misalignment in either the atlas (C1) or axis (C2) vertebrae. It results in dizziness and other symptoms later on.
