What is Cervicogenic Dizziness?
People with cervicogenic dizziness tend to complain of dizziness or general disorientation (a sensation of movement of the self or the environment) that is often worse during head movements or after maintaining certain neck positions for a long time (Vestibular Disorders Association).
Cervicogenic dizziness is a difficult and sometimes controversial diagnosis because there is no single diagnostic test to confirm that it is the cause of the dizziness3. It can take time for clinicians to systematically rule out other causes of dizziness before a diagnosis of cervicogenic dizziness is confirmed. 3,4 (Vestibular Disorders Association).
