Cervical Instability

Cervical instability is a condition characterized by excessive movement or laxity in the vertebrae of the cervical spine, which can lead to pain, discomfort, and a variety of neurological symptoms. Common causes include traumatic injuries, such as whiplash or sports-related impacts, degenerative changes in the spine, or congenital abnormalities. When the ligaments, muscles, and other supportive structures in the neck fail to adequately stabilize the cervical spine, it can result in instability, misalignment, and compression of nearby nerves.

Symptoms of Cervical Instability

  • Neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Muscle spasms
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Weakness
  • Feeling of instability or “giving way” in the neck
  • Radiating pain
  • Dizziness or vertigo
  • Many other symptoms

Cervical Instability Treatment in Newmarket

Chiropractic care offers a comprehensive approach to managing neck instability, focusing on restoring proper alignment, strengthening supportive muscles, and improving overall spinal function.

Every patient receives a thorough exam, including all necessary testing: thermographic nerve scan, orthopedic and neurological testing, posture assessment, in-office digital x-rays (if necessary), and other specialized testing. We use ‘high-tech’ methods for diagnosis and treatment, but don’t worry, we will never abandon the ‘old-fashioned’ skills of careful listening and personal attention.

Special testing is required for an accurate diagnosis – we use stress x-rays to determine the severity and location of the unstable joints.

Following your examination, we’ll provide you with a detailed report of our findings. Based on this information, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific condition, treatment preferences, and goals.

We have over 20+ years experience in helping people with cervical spine problems. Through gentle adjustments, therapeutic exercises, and lifestyle modifications, we can help you improve your cervical instability and get you back to enjoying your life.
