Physiotutors Podcast

05-08-2023 • 38 mins

This episode of the Physiotutors podcast features Julia Treleaven, a researcher and physiotherapist, who discusses cervicogenic dizziness and its diagnosis. We delve into the condition's pathophysiology and prevalence in patients with chronic neck pain. We also discuss red flags to watch for during patient history taking and differentiating cervicogenic dizziness from other forms of dizziness. The episode covers functional tests used to assess balance and motor control and treatment options, including sensory-motor exercises, manual therapy, and posture correction. The discussion emphasizes the importance of focusing on the neck's role in such cases rather than just diagnosing the condition.
