Course Description

Webinar only for AIC Members

Dizziness, headaches, and neck pain are common complaints chiropractors see on a daily basis. Chiropractors are a profession society generally views as being able to manage back pain from a musculoskeletal perspective. However, research suggests that the brain is a multimodal entity which combines proprioceptive information, vestibular information, and visual information in order to allow appropriate processing.

This lecture is designed to introduce and expand on the neurophysiology of dizziness, neck pain, and headaches, and how for many patients there is a common underlying dysfunction. A review of literature relating to the neurological effects of a chiropractic adjustment will be reviewed, as well as possible directions for future chiropractic research. An understanding of how the proprioceptive system, vestibular system, and visual system communicate, and the functional consequences of disorders of these systems will be emphasised. Real patient-cases will be reviewed to demonstrate how a chiropractor can incorporate the information presented in his practice with no additional equipment.
