    Importance of cervicogenic general dizziness (neck)

    Here is a study on dizziness..... mainly having to do with our necks. (I suffer from this)

    Its seems that we have our surgeries and many of us end up pulling weeds with our very expensive spines. Well, they are aware of that now! They mention weed pulling several times in the article. (I get a kick out of this because I have joked about it in the past) What is it with the weeds? (smiley face)

    Much has a lot do do with stenosis or the narrowing of our spinal cords. (In our necks) 89% in this study.

    If the cord is not under 10mm (size of pinky) then surgery is not called for.

    Living the vertical life, (without forces) takes practice. Our necks are precarious after our full fusion surgeries.

    Usually with dizziness, one thinks inner ear, but this isn't always the case. For us, our necks can never be discounted.
