[Diagnosis and therapy of vertebrogenic vertigo]
Functional disorders of the cervical spine may lead to vertigenous symptoms. The typical pathological finding in these patients is a hyperlordotic position of the cervical spine. This causes functional problems of the C0/C1 and C1/C2 joints. X-rays show morphological changes of the vertebrae and may also point to functional disorders. Physiotherapy is the most important treatment modality and preventative measure in static dysbalance of the cervical spine. sometimes chiropractic therapy by an experienced manual therapist or carefully directed infiltration therapy is necessary.
