"We generally think that chiropractic treatment is not a good idea for vertigo of any type, including cervical vertigo. We realize that this may not set well with the chiropractic community, but this is simply the author's opinion. There are two reasons: 1). Chiropractic treatment is associated with stroke in young people (Rothwell et al). This is very likely due to compression of the vertebral arteries at the top of the spine (Mann, Refshauge, 2001). 2). There is no mechanism listed above in which chiropractic treatment is more likely to help than physical therapy."
