Dizziness is closely related to balance and equilibrium. Balanceis maintained by interaction between certain parts of our central nervous system like:

• The inner ear

• The eyes

• The spine and pressure receptors in joints

• Sensory receptors of joints and muscles

• The central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord),

When the central nervous system receives conflicting messages from the other parts mentioned above then a person feels dizzy. Functional neurology treatment deals essentially with the central nervous system and how it is handling all the signals in your system.
