How do you treat Cervicogenic Dizziness?

In order to provide the most appropriate treatment, you need to figure out the most appropriate diagnosis.  Examining proper symptoms and ruling out other conditions that could contribute to dizziness and lightheadiness is the first course of action for someone you are considering to have Cervicogenic Dizziness.

From there, there are many options to treat the patient and this could be determined on what type of clinician you see.

Acupuncturist: you will get acupuncture

Chiropractor: you will get chiropractic manipulation (other procedures probably as well…)

Massage therapist: massage

Physical Therapist: well…depends on who and where.  Read more below.

For a clinician who is a vestibular therapist with minimal manual training, you will most likely get mostly vestibular therapy and some manual therapy to the neck. For the manual therapist with minimal vestibular training, you will most likely get the opposite — more manual therapy to the neck and less vestibular therapy.


You can learn more about the screening and treatment process of Cervicogenic Dizzinesss through Integrative Clinical Concepts, where the author and his wife, a Vestibular Specialist, teach a 2-day course.  Pertinent to this blog post, the second day provides the most up-to-date evidence review from multiple disciplines to treat through the “Physio Blend” to combine the specialities of manual therapy, vestibular therapy and sensorimotor training.  

If you would like to host a course for your staff (either a vestibular, neuro, sports or ortho clinic), please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected] for prices and discounts.
