Abstract

If the cause of a patient's dizziness is cervicogenic dizziness then clinical experience and empirical research both indicate there will be a prompt favourable response to manual therapy such as SNAGs applied to the upper cervical spine.A failure to respond after three to four such treatments suggests there is probably another cause for the dizziness. Howard had a marked reduction in his pain and dizziness after the first SNAG treatment. Because Howard had an immediate decrease in his dizziness after manual therapy treatment to the upper cervical spine, it can be inferred that mechanical dysfunction in the upper cervical spine was the likely source of the problem and that the hypothesis of cervicogenic dizziness was probably correct. It also suggests that the SNAG treatment positively addressed this dysfunction.
