#244 Vestibular Rehabilitation and Balance Systems- Lab Intensive... Across Neurologic, Orthopedic, and Cognitive Domains
This new interactive two-day (2-Day) workshop will cover the functional anatomy & physiology as well as the pathology of the vestibular and balance systems across neurologic, orthopedic, and cognitive domains. Emphasis will be placed upon formulating a working differential diagnosis for central and peripheral mediated vertigo. Additionally, equal focus will be placed on understanding how to assess and treat BPPV arising from anterior, horizontal, and posterior canalithiasis and cupulolithiasis. Guided by breakout hands-on labs and case scenarios, you will utilize and examine evidence-based assessment and intervention tools that are designed to effectively manage patients with easy and straight-forward diagnosis to those who have difficult-to-diagnose complex deficits which severely impair function. The instructor will disseminate information from clinical practice guidelines (CPG’s) for both Peripheral Vestibular Dysfunction and Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo that will assist you in your practice. The instructor also welcomes you to feel free to “present” any challenging cases from your own practices in a warm, friendly, non-threatening, non-judgmental, and collegial environment among your fellow colleagues across the nation. Lastly, the material presented in this course ranges from intermediate to advance and is applicable to multiple clinical setting ranging from acute to home to SNF to outpatient.
