Head & Neck Vertigo
Vertigo, defined as a false sensation of spinning, can be the result of a variety of different factors. The most common cause of vertigo is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), which is triggered by movement and changes in head position. BPPV occurs when calcium crystals dislodge into one or more of the three fluid filled semi circular canals in your inner ear. When enough of these particles accumulate, it interferes with the normal fluid movement in the canals. This causes the inner ear to send false signals to the brain, leading to sensations of vertigo.
