Hi! I've had dizziness and blurred vision for about 3 weeks now following a strange chiropractic adjustment in which she had her assistant pull on my legs while she pulled on my neck and twisted it sharply to one side. The dizziness is NOT SPINNING LIKE VERTIGO, instead it is imbalance, a feeling of unsteadiness, like I'm on a boat. I've been doing a lot of internet research and I've come across things that say the SCM and other neck muscles can cause dizziness, but this is a controversial theory that most medical doctors do not acknowledge. I wonder if some of the symptoms you are experiencing are the same as mine? Is it gone now? Can you remember your symptoms? I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with me too.
