Sensorimotor Impairment in Neck Pain

Sensorimotor Impairment in Neck Pain

Learn to evaluate and treat sensorimotor impairment in patients with neck pain

Introduction

Trauma to the neck, like with whiplash, can cause the cervical receptors in a patient’s neck to become dysfunctional affecting the patient’s sensorimotor control. This leads to symptoms affecting a patient’s balance and proprioception and leading to feelings of dizziness and unsteadiness.  These symptoms are often not recognised and not treated as part of the rehabilitation process. The course will cover sensorimotor function and impairment in patients with neck pain as well as differentiation, evaluation, and specific management.
