These symptoms usually occur together with neck pain and neck stiffness and often decrease in severity as the neck pain is alleviated. Other symptoms that may be experienced are headaches and/or general imbalance.
Cervicogenic dizziness is often misdiagnosed. It is therefore highly recommended that you see a health professional such as a chiropractor, who will go through a thorough evaluation and rule out other causes of dizziness, to help clear up any confusion.
Fortunately, the majority of patients that suffer from cervicogenic dizziness improve with appropriate neck treatment, with several studies reporting significant improvements with treatment modalities such as mobilizations, exercises and instruction in proper posture and neck positioning. Other patients may require additional vestibular therapy which may include eye exercises, balance exercises, walking or graded exposure to neck movements or environments that make patients dizzy.
