How long does it take for cervical vertigo to go away?
Episodes of cervical vertigo go for hours, and the condition itself can last for years. Diagnosing cervical vertigo can be difficult. For one thing, some of its symptoms overlap with those of other medical problems, from inner ear issues to stroke to traumatic brain injury (concussion).
What is cervical vertigo caused by?
Poor neck posture, neck disorders, or trauma to the cervical spine cause this condition. Cervical vertigo often results from a head injury that disrupts head and neck alignment, or whiplash. This dizziness most often occurs after moving your neck, and can also affect your sense of balance and concentration.
