Dizziness from Cervical Problems

The cervical spine feeds important information into the balance system and injury or disease can cause imbalance and dizziness. Some examples include:

  • Whiplash injuries that occur with head trauma will often injure the bone, muscles or nerves of the cervical spine
  • Herniated cervical spine discs
  • Muscle spasms in the neck
  • Arthritis

Treatment of the underlying cause of cervical spine disease will often result in a resolution of the symptoms. When medical or surgical treatment fails to fully resolve dizziness or imbalance, physical therapy can be an important adjunct (see Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy).
