- CEU DETAILS
The course will focus on the assessment and treatment of patients with vertigo and dysequilibrium from unusual vestibular causes. The course is designed for clinicians(PT & OT) with prior vestibular rehabilitation course work and clinical experience. Material covered will include advanced techniques for treating anterior and horizontal canal BPPV, central causes of dizziness (including concussion), identification and treatment of cervicogenic dizziness, chronic subjective dizziness, migraine and other unusual vestibular disorders. As vestibular disorders occur across the lifespan and with various disorders, this information is applicable to a large patient population with symptoms of dizziness.
Course participants will be able to:
1) demonstrate he ability to diagnose and perform the various appropriate treatment techniques for anterior semicircular canal BPPV, and horizontal semicircular canal BPPV, including BPPV affecting the anterior arm of the horizontal semicircular canal.
2) identify the causes of cervicogenic dizziness, and will be able to conduct and interpret a detailed examination of the patient to differentiate between vestibular and cervicogenic causes of dizziness.
3) design and conduct a treatment program for individuals with cervicogenic dizziness, including: manual traction techniques for the cervical spine and cervical kinesthetic retraining techniques.
4) evaluate central causes of dizziness, including CVA,brain injury, and concussion. Course participants will be able to design and modify treatment programs based on the nature of the cause of dizziness in this patient population.
5) distinguish among causes of dizziness such as chronic subjective dizziness, migraine associated dizziness, and movement disorders. Course participants will be able to design and modify treatment programs based on the nature of the cause of dizziness in this patient population.
Prior vestibular rehabilitation course work and experience treating patients with vestibular disorders are necessary before taking this course.
