This course focuses on examination and intervention for individuals with vertigo and disequilibrium from vestibular causes using essential, evidence-based tests and measures. The course highlights management of several vestibular pathologies, including a review of anatomy and discussion of examination and interventions for each vestibular disorder. Specific emphasis of the course will be on the management of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, unilateral peripheral hypofunction, bilateral vestibular hypofunction, and other common vestibular disorders. Case study presentations and hands-on lab components will enhance the learners’ experience. This course is intended for individuals with a general knowledge of vestibular anatomy and physiology, as well as common vestibular disorders.
At completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
1. Discuss the differences between normal and abnormal vestibular pathology and how it correlates to clinical examination and interventions.
2. Demonstrate tests and measures that are appropriate for vestibular pathology (peripheral vestibular hypofunction, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, and bilateral vestibular hypofunction), and apply results to create a comprehensive vestibular rehabilitation program.
3. Refine skills needed to create a patient-specific, evidence based rehabilitation program to help people with vestibular pathology optimize their recovery.
