This presentation will provide an overview of Cervicogenic Dizziness (CGD). Participants will be introduced to the proposed mechanisms of CGD, including Posterior Cervical Sympathetic Syndrome, Vertebrobasilar Insufficieny, and altered proprioception signals. Special detail on the key examination features in CGD will be discussed in order to allow the participant to differentiate from other causes of vertigo. Management strategies specific to CGD will be presented.


Upon completion of this virtual learning webinar, participates will be able to:

  • Describe cervical anatomy and anatomical structures involved with CGD;
  • Discuss the evidence related to etiology, diagnosis and management of CGD;
  • Describe mechanisms of postural control with specific emphasis to the cervical spine;
  • Recognize patients that dizziness but are not appropriate for treatment that require specialist referral or Emergency Care;
  • Differentiate CGD from other vestibular causes, including common vascular causes of central vestibular disorders;
  • Describe key test and measures relevant to CGD and interpret findings;
  • Develop an appropriate patient-specific cervical-vestibular rehabilitation program.
