Course Description: Symptoms of dizziness are the number 3 reason individuals over the age of 65 seek medical attention. It becomes the number 1 reason for seeking care in individuals over the age of 70. Medical or surgical management is often not indicated or helpful, but many of these individuals do benefit from vestibular rehabilitation techniques. In addition, 50% of the individuals over the age of 65 with dizziness will develop a particular form of vertigo that can be alleviated with one simple therapy treatment. These individuals with vertigo and dysequilibrium represent a large patient population for physical and occupational therapy. This course will focus on the assessment and treatment of patients with vertigo and disequilibrium from vestibular causes. Specific emphasis will be placed on the assessment and treatment of unilateral and bilateral vestibular hypofunction, benign paroxysmal positioning vertigo, central vestibular disorders, and multisensory dizziness. This information is applicable to a large patient population including geriatric patients as well as individuals with CNS lesions such as multiple sclerosis, CVA, and head injury. We have listened to your feedback and have developed an Advanced Vestibular Rehabilitation Online Series to serve as days 3 and 4 of this course. We hope you will take your skills to the next level with this engaging series taught by international expert Richard Clendaniel. • Cervicogenic Dizziness Online • Advanced BPPV and • What to do When It's Not BPPV: Challenging Vestibular Disorders Including Post Concussion Syndrome Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
