With neck pain, a vestibular therapist tries to narrow down if there is an underlying association between the pain and the dizziness. The therapist often does an assessment of the neck, looking at joint stiffness, stability, and so on. They will put together a lot of different information to try and come to an understanding of the cause. The therapist should be able to identify whether it is a cervicogenic type of dizziness (related to neck movement – think turning your head) or something wrong with the vestibular system (related to head movement – think “lying down in bed”).
