Through the course, Ms. Brueckner teaches practitioners how to describe the vestibular system and common pediatric dysfunctions to patients and caregivers. The course highlights the role of therapy in managing and treating vestibular disorders including mTBI, Trauma, BPPV, autonomic and oculomotor dysfunction, visual motion sensitivity, vestibular neuritis, and dizziness imbalance and migrainous disorders. Clinicians will learn to design, implement, and modify treatments to ensure optimal patient success.
“Having researched and practiced in the field of vestibular dysfunction and rehabilitation for more than 25 years, I understand the challenges in diagnosing and treating and children and adolescents,” said Inger Brueckner, MS, PT, and ERI faculty member. “I am excited to offer my course in an online setting to help clinicians address the needs of this unique population.”
The course’s online format offers clinicians a flexible format to extend learning and expertise.
