  • Lateral Medullary Syndrome

    RESULTS: Gait ataxia (88%), vertigo/dizziness (91%), nausea/vomiting (73%), dysphagia (61%), hoarseness (55%), Horner sign (73%), and facial (85%) and hemibody (94%) sensory[] hyperextension.[] Components of lateral medullary syndrome Vestibulo-cerebellar signs: vertigo, nystagmus, ataxia Sensory symptoms: usually ipsilateral face (first to appear) contralateral[]

  • Labyrinthine Concussion

    It follows vestibular or head trauma and may or may not be associated with vertigo.[] They are classically attributed to soft tissue injury caused by hyperextension of the neck (Carroll et al, 1985).[] , cervical vertigo, migraine-related vertigo, post-concussion syndrome.[]

  • Postconcussive Syndrome

    […] tools for dizziness may be problematic in this population.[] Neck pain and stiffness may also complicate recovery. These complications often occur after motor vehicle crashes that result in hyperflexion/hyperextension of the neck.[] Headaches, dizziness, fatigue, emotional instability, anxiety, sleep disturbances and an overall decreased quality of life are described as the most important complaints.[]

  • Vertebral Artery Aneurysm

    […] related to vertigo and dizziness [ 2 ].[] […] manipulation, or from hyperextension of the neck in sports or exercise.[] Schievink also lists precipitating events associated with hyperextension of the neck, including ''practicing yoga, painting a ceiling, coughing, vomiting and sneezing,'' as[]

These complications often occur after motor vehicle crashes that result in hyperflexion/hyperextension of the neck.[] […] contemporary neuroimaging studies in conjunction with comprehensive vestibular and balance assessment provided a better understanding of the pathophysiology and pathoanatomy of dizziness[]
