Case Two

A patient came into  PT Of The City ( physical Therapy Clinic ) reporting feeling dizzy when rolling to her left side.

The patient also reported neck pain and stiffness.

When observing the patient's posture a forward head posture with excessive thoracic kyphosis was noted.


A dix hall pike test was performed to rule in a possible diagnosis of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) on the left side.


For the treatment the physical therapist performed the Epley maneuver

in order to get the crystals that help us detect movement back into place.

During the Epley maneuver patients often feel very dizzy and experience nystagmus (involuntary quick movements of the eyes) within 20-30 seconds these symptoms go away and the patient starts to feel better.


To treat the forward head posture and excessive kyphosis of the thoracic spine the physical therapist performed soft tissue mobilization to relieve the patient's pain and worked on strengthening the back and neck muscles.

The physical therapist also performed stretches for the pectoral muscles.


After just one treatment the patient felt less dizziness and was able to maintain a good posture which decreased her neck pain.
