Manual Therapy and Exercise Management of Cervicogenic Dizziness Based on Clinical Reasoning

NOTE: This webinar will be delivered live on SEPTEMBER 14, 2017 - 1:00 pm - 2:30 p.m. (Eastern). Be sure your email is current as you will only receive the direct link via email.

Cervicogenic dizziness (CGD) is a clinical phenomenon encountered at times in patients presenting with cervical spine dysfunction. Previous research has shown CGD to be a common sequelae of whiplash, but clinical observation and prior case studies suggest that CGD also can occur with other presentations of cervical injury or dysfunction. Physical therapists can help reduce symptoms of dizziness by providing appropriate intervention to the cervical region, but many patients are not aware that they can seek physical therapist management for this condition. This course provides an overview of the prevalence and mechanisms of CGD and reviews the relevant evidence related to its diagnosis and management. The presenters will discuss an evidence-informed clinical reasoning approach to differential diagnosis and management of patients with CGD, emphasizing the clinically reasoned application of specific manual therapy and exercise interventions.

Learning objectives

  1. Describe the prevalence and proposed mechanisms of CGD. Identify the available evidence related to diagnosis and management of CGD.
  2. Apply an evidence-informed clinical reasoning approach to evaluate the patient with CGD and rule out other common competing differential diagnoses.
  3. Apply an evidence-informed clinical reasoning approach to treatment of CGD via specific manual therapy and exercise interventions.
