  • My dizziness changes when I lie down.

If these are familiar to you, then your neck is definitely a part of why you are having dizziness. The good news? You’re not alone!  Dizziness is a challenging diagnosis, but you can make a huge improvement in your quality of life with our cervicogenic dizziness relief program!

Trigger Point Manual Therapy

Our personalized cervicogenic dizziness program offers relief for those suffering from dizziness and vertigo.

When you trust your dizziness to the team at PhysioFit of North Carolina, we take the time to get to know the whole you so we can personalize your recovery program for your unique and complex condition. There is hope for a better tomorrow, and we’re committed to helping you get back to what matters most to you.
With our 1-on-1 sessions, your therapist will take the time to get to know you and your complete personal history to help identify all contributing factors related to your dizziness.
Leveraging the latest movement-based technologies, our cervical kinesthetic exams and vestibular exam will pinpoint ocular and vestibular disturbances, but also faulty movement patterns that contribute to your dizziness from your neck.

The most informative Neck Health Exam that contributes to your personalized Cervicogenic Dizziness plan.

There are three phases of our Cervicogenic Dizziness Program Exam: Movement Control Testing, Cervical Proprioception Testing and Hands-on Assessment. This exam is done in a private room with you and your therapist. The Exam identifies pain generators, muscle imbalances, and dysfunction in neck alignment. This provides us with your overall neck health performance to uncover the underlying “why”.

Spinal Alignment

Our daily lives cause forward head posture escalating headaches and neck tension. This can lead to a straight cervical spine, which interferes with erect and proper posture.  We exam your alignment to start a treatment plan to fix it.

Cervical Proprioception

Proprioception is a crucial aspect of our sensory system that helps us maintain coordination, and spatial awareness of our neck while we are upright all day long.  We can detect dysfunction in proprioception to enhance movement control, reduce pain and take away dizziness.

Muscle Imbalances

We commonly find muscle imbalances in our exam, which explains the “tug of war” that your neck goes through all day long!  Finding these deviations is necessary to allow for smooth and coordinated movement to promote neck health.

Additional Examination Procedures

A detailed clinical Vestibular Exam that contributes to your personalized therapy plan.

There are four phases of our Vestibular Program Exam: Peripheral vs Central causes, Canalith Repositioning Testing, Vestibulo-ocular Assessment and Balance Analysis. This exam is done in a private room with you and your therapist. The Exam identifies inner ear vs brain involvement, positional vertigo, and balance dysfunction. This provides us with your overall vestibular and other systems’ performance to uncover the underlying “why”.

Canalith Repositioning Manuevers

With our technology and expertise, we can determine which canal(s) are causing your BPPV and implement the most appropriate manuever.  If done correctly, these techniques are highly successful.

Vestibular-Ocular Assessment

Often referred to as a vestibular ocular reflex (VOR) assessment, this is a series of tests and evaluations used to assess the functioning of the vestibular system and its interaction with the visual system.

Balance Analysis

A diagnostic process used to assess an individual’s ability to maintain their equilibrium or stability, particularly while standing or performing various movements.
