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.

Objectives

  • Identify anatomy and pathophysiology as it relates 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 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
