Dizziness with cervical osteochondrosis is a frequent symptom of instability of the vertebrae.

They get food from nearby vertebrae. In normal nutrition of the intervertebral discs is carried out by passive diffusion.
If the affected bone tissue of the vertebral column, disrupted the delivery of nutrients. To normalize microcirculation, perform a simple exercise is to walk on flat ground 1.5-2 hours. The rhythm of the movement will improve blood supply of the vertebral column.

Loss of sensation of the skin in the area of pain indicates a strong impairment of the nerve roots or narrowing of the spinal cord. Always observed neurological disorders.
degenerative disc disease of the cervical spine is not always accompanied by pain in the neck. Its primary symptoms are "masked" under the heart disease, arrhythmia and arrhythmia.
