Conference Description :
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.

Conference Objectives are :
• Identify the anatomical structures responsible for perception of movement and understand their physiological functions.
• Recognize the intricate connections between the vestibular, oculomotor and somatosensory systems and how they combine to maintain stability of posture and vision.
• Recognize and understand the different mechanisms of recovery of the vestibular system and how they impact the course and content of rehabilitation.
• Recognize typical vestibular disorders by symptom and category and identify critical areas for therapeutic intervention.
• Perform evaluative procedures and assess findings (interview/history, Dizziness Handicap Inventory, oculomotor exam, visual-vestibular exam, positional testing, Motion Sensitivity Quotient, Dynamic Gait Index, static balance assessments, systems screening).
• Recognize typical presentations of nystagmus and their relevance to treatment.
• Design an appropriate treatment plan including; appropriate tasks, therapeutic exercises and measurable goals.
• Perform appropriate therapeutic exercises and procedures to patients with vestibular disorders.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
