I will share my extensive experience with the treatment of vestibular patients
For the past 10 years I have been specializing in treating patients with dizziness and balance disorders. I have implemented vestibular and concussion programs and developed a systematic approach to the evaluation and treatment of these disorders for positive outcomes. I have extensive experience with Eng testing and work with Neurocom Equitest, Balance Master and ImPACT concussion testing. I am continually assessing the validity of specific diagnostic testing procedures and techniques. I want to extend my knowledge to therapists who want/need to work with this particular patient group and to minimize their learning curve time by providing a variety of clinical resources. It is my intention to teach therapists how to appropriately utilize differential diagnosis and develop appropriate treatment plans for success. -Barry Morgan, PT
