 What is knew is not to know that proprioception is our sixth biological sense. The sense which informs the brain about the body and its relationship with the space. This was published by Sherrington in 1906 , more than one century ago. 

What is new is the knowlege that some conditions of muscle pain, imbalance and learning disabilities are consequence of proprioceptive disorders.

It is new as well, that proprioceptive disorder may be fixed and  symptoms disappear under specif proprioceptive treatment

Vestibular Migraine ;  Cervicogenic Headache

These two entities is often referred as specific clinical entities.
There is not direct neurological pathway between balance system and migraineous areas ,nor between neck muscles and head based muscles. However there is a matter of fact that there are people suffering simultaneously from imbalance, migraine, neck pain and headache. This association is made by the proprioceptive system. A proprioceptive dysfunction may have as manifestations, Imbalance,Migraine, Neck pain, Headache
So , in these cases the good strategy is to do proprioceptive tests and to check if proprioceptive treatment is effective in treating these symptoms.

Vertical Heterophoria  versus Vertical Heterolocalization

Some authors are linking headache, neck pain, dizziness , imbalance and other symptoms to vertical heterophoria .This Vertical Heterophoria would be the cause of these kind of symptoms.
So, the treatment would be to correct this so called Vertical Heterophoria by the necessary prisms to correct it.
The first thing to know is that in theses cases what they are observing is vertical heterolocalization for far but if they do the appropriated tests they will observe horizontal heterolocalization for near as well.
In reality it is not an heterophoria because there is not any movement of refixation at the cover test.
Otherwise all the symptoms and the heterolocalization vertical and horizontal are both consequences of proprioceptive dysfunction.

So the treatment for those symptoms is not prisms for vertical heterophoria but ACTIVE PRISMS for correcting PROPRIOCEPTION. Vertical prisms may be harmful because they stimulate at same time  in- rotatory eye muscles and out-rotatory eye muscles . This may produce a proprioceptive conflict and produce serious symptoms.
