Brief Answer: Yes, herniated disks in neck can cause vertigo Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic! Yes, herniated disks in neck can cause vertigo in some cases. However, there are various other causes as well which can cause vertigo such as inner ear problems, certain medications, some tumors of head and neck etc. If in your case, herniated disks are the cause, then may be benefited by surgery.
