(p.644) Chapter 107 Cervical Contribution to Balance: Cervical Vertigo
The Head-Neck Sensory Motor System

Jeffrey J. Brown

Oxford University Press

Dizziness is described as any alteration or perversion of the sense of balance. In this chapter, the evidence to support the diagnosis of the syndrome of imbalance that resulted from disturbance of cervical joint receptors is presented and tackled. Various experimental supports are presented in this chapter. Also, cervical vertigo syndrome is discussed in detail, including its definition and symptoms. The diagnostic dilemmas are also briefly discussed, such as the complaints that complicate the diagnosis of cervical vertigo due to the subjective signs of the disease. It is recommended from experimental evidence that there should be a validity of the diagnosis of cervical vertigo because of the increasing number of patients with characteristic syndrome.
