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 you email is current as you will only receive the direct link to listen in 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 can also 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 session provides an overview of the prevalence and mechanisms of CGD and reviews the relevant evidence related to its diagnosis and management. An evidence-informed clinical reasoning approach to differential diagnosis and management of patients with CGD will be presented, emphasizing the clinically reasoned application of specific manual therapy and exercise interventions.

He is an active member of the APTA, and has served the Georgia chapter in multiple capacities including legislative committee member, delegate, board member, and chief delegate. He practices at Benchmark Physical Therapy in northeast Georgia. He is a primary faculty member for Benchmark Rehab Institute’s orthopaedic residency program and manual therapy fellowship program - leading content related to musculoskeletal management and dry needling. He also serves as faculty for musculoskeletal management courses with Evidence in Motion, and he is adjunct faculty for South College’s DPT program.

Elizabeth Lane, PT, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT. Dr. Lane holds a DPT from the Medical College of Georgia. She completed orthopaedic residency through Evidence in Motion in 2010 and went on to achieve ABPTS certification in orthopaedics the following year in 2011. She has also completed certification tracts in dry needling, spinal manipulation, and strength and conditioning specialization, and in early 2015 she became a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists following completion of orthopaedic manual therapy fellowship with Evidence in Motion. She is currently pursuing a PhD at the University of Utah and serves as a study coordinator on a nationally funded clinical trial. Her research endeavors include a current case series investigating the use of dry needling in mechanical neck pain. In addition to her PhD studies and research endeavors, Dr. Lane also serves as faculty for Benchmark Rehab Institute’s orthopaedic residency program and manual therapy fellowship program – leading content related to musculoskeletal management and dry needling. She also serves as faculty for musculoskeletal management courses with Evidence in Motion.

Hannah Norton, PT, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT. Dr. Norton holds a DPT from Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions. She completed orthopaedic residency through Evidence in Motion in 2009 and went on to achieve ABPTS certification in orthopaedics the following year in 2010. In 2015 she became a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists following completion of orthopaedic manual therapy fellowship with Evidence in Motion. Hannah currently practices for Benchmark Physical Therapy in the Chattanooga, TN area, and she serves as faculty for Benchmark Rehab Institute’s orthopaedic residency program and manual therapy fellowship program – leading content related to musculoskeletal management and dry needling. She is also adjunct faculty for South College’s DPT program.

Derek Clewley, PT, DPT, PhD(c), OCS, FAAOMPT. Dr. Clewley graduated from the University of Montana in 2002 with a degree in Physical Therapy and later went on to earn his DPT degree through Shenandoah University. In 2006 he achieved ABPTS certification in orthopaedics, and in 2010 he became a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists following completion of orthopaedic manual therapy fellowship with Evidence in Motion. He is currently a PhD candidate at Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions, and his primary research interests include trigger point dry needling and manual physical therapy. He is the director for Benchmark Rehab Institute’s orthopaedic residency and orthopaedic manual therapy fellowship. He serves as faculty for musculoskeletal management courses with Evidence in Motion, and he is adjunct faculty for South College and Emory University.

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.
