Our technology and 1 on 1 treatment times allow us to treat all of your dizziness causes, including the inner ear and neck. Why just get a little here and there when you can get it all at once for best relief?
The differential diagnosis of dizziness and vertigo from the neck or inner ear is key to getting the right treatments. Why do we know? Well, we wrote the book on it.
Cervicogenic Dizziness can be described as lightheadiness, unsteadiness, or drunkenness. It is not normally described as actual vertigo, hence the reason we do not use “cervical vertigo” as the main diagnosis. It can be common in individuals who have disc disease, arthritis and neck pain. It is even more common in individuals who have had a concussion, whiplash or other type of traumatic brain injury. We also find it even more common with individuals who have recurrent BPPV or other vestibular pathologies.
At PhysioFit of North Carolina, our team aims to find exactly what causes your dizziness, which could be muscles and joints in the neck or jaw. We normally find these areas correlate with dysfunction in the inner ear or other central vestibular disorders. The differential diagnosis of Cervicogenic Dizziness can be challenging as dizziness can be difficult to describe, but with our two specialities, we are able to examine multiple systems. Based on information gained from our detailed examination, our physical therapists will illustrate clearly to you what individual structures are causing your dizziness by actively changing the quality of your symptoms there and then during the treatment.
Hands on treatments to specific cranial and cervical myofascial points and joints can improve pain, stiffness and kinesthetic awareness to help your dizziness symptoms.
Our infrared technology helps us diagnose if you have subsequent BPPV with your neck pain, which allows us to treat the correct canals and give you the best results.
We know the right stretches and exercises that are best suited for neck pain and dizziness through our Feel it to Heal it Physio approach.
