The Neuro-Vestibular Complex On-Site Training

This on-site training class is also available as Public Schedule Seminar.

This hands-on course is designed to bridge the gap between evaluation and treatment of adult patients with balance disorders associated with vestibular dysfunction.

Course Description/Agenda


This hands-on course is designed to bridge the gap between evaluation and treatment of adult patients with balance disorders associated with vestibular dysfunction. A structured method of examination involving the components of movement and mobility will be presented in conjunction with treatment paradigms specific to the diagnosis and impairments. Functional testing procedures and evidenced-based treatment techniques will be demonstrated and reinforced with hands on practice time to allow for integration of the material. All course materials have been carefully designed to serve as a life long resource in the clinic.
