Online Continuing Education Course Objectives

    Course Objectives

    Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to:

    • Describe the interaction between the body’s multisensory systems and the complexities of the relationship between the systems to maintain vestibular function and balance.
    • Describe the importance of therapy for identifying the root cause (s) of vestibular dysfunction and developing a proper treatment program to improve symptoms and function.

    • Discuss the importance of central testing and understand how to sequence the testing in a comprehensive evaluation.
    • Perform specific oculomotor and vestibular function testing and understand the implications of the findings. To Include:
      • Neutral primary gaze position test
      • Eccentric Gaze Holding Test
      • Ocular ROM/Mobility/Motility test
      • Smooth Pursuit Test
      • Saccadic eye movement test
      • Vergence test
      • Optokinetic nystagmus test
      • Vestibulo-ocular reflex test(slow)
      • Cross cover test
      • Head thrust test/head impulse test(HIT)
      • Head shake test(HST)
      • Vestibulo-ocular cancellation testing
    • Identify if a symptom is generated by a central or peripheral source.
    • Apply information gathered from detailed history, evaluations and tests and develop appropriate algorithmic plans of care.
    • Recognize nystagmal variations and assist in the correct diagnosis and treatment in vestibular disorders, especially BPPV and its variant resistant forms.
    • Perform specific BPPV tests (such as Dix-Hallpike, Sermount Manuever, Gufoni Manuever, Forced Prolonged Positioning) and decide appropriate treatment options including traditional and newly emerging alternative treatment options.
    • Identify how to utilize the information in research articles to perform the most effective tests and develop evidence based rehab programs.
    • Select specific tests and treatments within your evaluation and treatment program to ensure you can achieve a specific diagnosis without over stimulating the patient. In addition to scaling progression to avoid setbacks.
    • Describe how to modify specific tests to accommodate for limited spinal motion or age related restrictions.
    • Develop comprehensive programs for oculomotor and vestibular deficits, which can be progressed to home programs for optimal patient compliance and function results.
    • Develop a reproducible system to accurately monitor the progress made with a home based program.

Since 1986, he has practiced in a variety of neurologic and orthopedic settings. He is currently working independently as a vestibular therapist and balance consultant in his own practice and has been a national seminar educator since 2003. He has extensive experience in interpretation of vestibular testing, computerized balance testing, video nystagmography and oculomotor testing. Barry finished a competency based course on vestibular rehabilitation from Herdman in 2004. He is highly skilled in the evaluation and treatment of patients with vestibular disorders and concussion syndromes. He has worked closely with the U.S. Military treating returning injured soldiers with vestibular and concussion injuries. In addition, he treats concussion injuries in the athletic population. He was involved in an NIH grant study on motion illness in 2006, and has also published research on BPPV in the Neuro-Otology Journal in 2007. Current research interests include vestibular treatment algorithms for a variety of vestibular conditions and continued BPPV research. He has presented several community education courses on balance and fall prevention and has provided free screening services for many local health fairs attempting to raise the awareness for the need for proactive exercise for elderly abatement of dizziness and imbalance, and proper diagnosis of conditions involving the vestibular system.
