  • Description

    We are going to explore some of the proposed mechanisms for pain’s 'stickiness’, looking at plasticity at multiple interconnecting levels in our biology, from molecular to behavioural. We will also discuss the features, characteristics and life experiences that mean someone is more susceptible to developing a longer lasting pain experience. In other words, why someone is more vulnerable. We will set dizziness within its bio-psycho-social context and look at some basic physiology. The better you understand the physiology, the better you can interpret your assessments and therefore your treatment is more effective. We look at the commonest triggers for peripheral dizziness, namely BPPV and vestibular neuronitis. Basic principals of vestibular rehabilitation are introduced, based not on generalised 'recipes' but on customised exercise programming; "look at the patient!".
