cause of vestibular disorders, and in particular, and dizziness, is a combination of three components - the vascular, muscular and articular feeling and the pain factor with a predominance of some of them.
For example, violation of motion in the cervical spine joints gives rise to abnormal nerve impulses (not available in the standard), going to the vestibular system and cerebellum.

All this contributes to the subjective feeling of vertigo, which is greater, the more pronounced the changes described.
