Vertigo is a specific type of dizziness that can be described as the ‘illusion of movement’ or perception of motion of oneself or their environment. Vertigo is usually caused by a problem affecting the inner ear and its connections known as the vestibular system. Some of the problems affecting the vestibular system include:

- Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)
- Vestibular Neuritis
- Labrynthitis
- Acoustic Neuroma
- Ménière’s Disease
- Semi Circular Canal Dehiscence
- Trauma
- Ototoxicity

Conditions affecting the central nervous system where vestibular input is processed resulting in vertigo are less common but include:

- Migraine
- Concussion
- Head injuries
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Stroke
