Presented by Richard O'Hara

The cervical spine can cause symptoms of unsteadiness and imbalance. This two day course provides a scientific rationale for the existence of cervicogenic dizziness. Its diagnosis is one of exclusion. Differentiation between vestibular, central neurological and musculoskeletal causes of dizziness is highly important when assessing and treating cervicogenic dizziness. This intense two day course covers the essentials of clinical vestibular assessment and treatment. A strong emphasis is placed on differential diagnosis, clinical reasoning and treatment selection. Delegates will be taught to identify signs and symptoms that indicate central/sinister pathology. The rehabilitation techniques included in the course have a strong evidence base. The techniques are not confined to cervicogenic dizziness. The course provides a scientific rationale for the existence and treatment of dizziness arising from the neck .

The course is suitable for physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors with no experience of dizzy patients or those wishing to consolidate existing skills.
