Conditions Treated

Cervicogenic Vertigo / Dizziness

Cervicogenic vertigo is a sensation of dizziness due to limitations at the cervical spine, otherwise known as your neck. The neck plays an important role in your body’s ability to maintain balance and a sense of equilibrium. When the neck is not moving properly, or if movement in painful, this can lead to a sensation of dizziness or lightheadedness. You may also experience headache or a sensation of pressure in your head and ears, nausea, imbalance, and sensitivity to position changes.

How can physical therapy help?

A physical therapist will perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine that your dizziness symptoms are caused by limitations at your neck. Once determined, a combination of gentle hands-on manual techniques, and most importantly exercise to improve posture, strength and alignment of the spine will be initiated.
