Therapy Network Seminars

Bring this seminar on-site to your facility for groups of 10 or more.

This two day course will enable the participant to understand the role of manual therapy in rehabilitation of the upper extremity and apply manual and exercise techniques appropriately.

Course Description

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.


  • Identify anatomy and pathophysiology as it re‐ lates to balance control
  • Describe the factors that make the older adult more prone to falls
  • Differentiate the patient report of dizziness into one of three possible etiologies: vestibular dysfunction, disequilibrium, or non‐vestibular dysfunction
  • Identify vestibular and/or non‐vestibular causes for dizziness and possible treatment options
  • Demonstrate skill in the use of the (1) special vestibular tests, (2) motion sensitivity tests and (3) standardized balance and mobility tests presented in this seminar
