This two-day intermediate level course provides the fundamentals for evaluating and treating vestibular dysfunction. A basic overview of vestibular function and anatomy as well as central nervous system interaction is provided. Hands-on laboratory sessions enhance the clinicians ability to properly perform testing techniques for vestibular disorders. Quite often the -missing link- in the management of a clients complaints lies within the weakness of the vestibular system. A thorough understanding of underlying disorders assist the clinician in developing effective treatment and exercise programs to decrease symptoms and enhance balance and functional ability. Options and considerations for creating treatment plans and long-term care management strategies are thoroughly discussed.
The treatment ideas presented in this course can be applied to patients with vestibular disorders as well as to patients with limitations in balance or sensory integration. Clinicians will be able to immediately apply this information in the clinical setting.
This course is offered to physical therapists, physical therapy assistants, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants. An extensive laboratory component is designed to provide clinicians with skills required for the treatment of their balance and vestibular patients.
Of my 24 years of clinical practice, the past 17 have been focused on management of the vestibular client, and I have worked in conjunction with Otology/Neurology physicians in clinics that routinely utilize advanced diagnostic testing to best understand this patient group.
