Cervicogenic Dizziness

Many people can experience both neck pain and dizziness; however, it can be a challenge to work out if the two are related, or if having both symptoms is just a coincidence. Cervicogenic Dizziness is a neck-related sensation in which a person feels like either they’re spinning or the world around them is spinning.

What is Cervicogenic Dizziness?

Cervicogenic Dizziness (also known as Cervical Vertigo) is a feeling of disorientation or unsteadiness caused by a neck injury or health condition that affects the neck. It’s almost always accompanied by neck pain. Your range of motion can be affected, too, and sometimes it comes along with a headache. Episodes of cervical vertigo go for hours, and the condition itself can last for years.

Causes of Cervicogenic Dizziness

  • Cervical spondylosis (neck arthritis) or slipped disc can create pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerves and block blood flow to the brain and inner ear
