Cervicogenic Vertigo - A Case Report

Dr. Camy Bhura [5] | Dr. Paras Bhura [3]

Abstract: Cervicogenic vertigo is described as a sensation of rotation caused by a change in the upper cervical spine's neck proprioceptive afferents. Patients commonly report a sensation of spinning or falling when turning or flexing and extending their heads as a result of their relationship with the vestibular nucleus. Despite the prevalence of nystagmus, no additional neurological disorders are typically found. Joint constraints, especially in the C1 - C3 motion portions of the upper cervical spine, are frequently noticed. Here, we discuss the case of a 38 - year - old woman who was identified as having Cervicogenic Vertigo (CV) based on episodes of neck discomfort and vertigo that occurred in tandem. With manual therapy and vertigo exercise, both problems got better. Because there are no specific tests to demonstrate its etiology, CV is a fairly straightforward complaint for patients, yet it frequently leads to a challenging diagnosis. No patient should be refused a suitable management in order for CV to be taken into consideration.
