Brief Summary:
Manual therapy reduces symptoms in patients with cervicogenic dizziness. The mobilization and manipulation of upper cervical spine are the most popular treatment in this patients. The International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapists suggest different recommendations for the safety application of manual therapy techniques in the upper cervical spine, traction manipulation techniques complies with this conditions. However, there isn´t investigation about the effect of traction manipulation in patients with cervicogenic dizziness. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of traction manipulation in dizziness intensity, range of motion of cervical spine and quality of life on patients with cervicogenic dizziness.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Intervention Group
Investigators will performed traction manipulation of those articulations of upper cervical spine with indication for this treatment. Before manipulation soft tissue techniques will be applied in order to prepare the joint. After manipulation the patient rest in supine position. The intervention will have a duration of 10 minutes.
Other: Intervention Group
Control Group
The patient of the control group maintain the supine position for 10 minutes.
Other: Control Group



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change of baseline in Dizziness Intensity (100mm VAS) at 1 week and 1 month [ Time Frame: Baseline- 1 week- 1 month ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change of baseline in range of motion of cervical spine change (Tool: Cervical range of motion) [ Time Frame: Baseline- 1 week- 1 month ]
  2. Change of baseline in upper cervical spine range of motion (Tool: Cervical range of motion) [ Time Frame: Baseline- 1 week- 1 month ]
  3. Change of baseline in dizziness Handicap Inventory (questionnaire) [ Time Frame: Baseline- 1 week- 1 month ]
