Vestibular Rehabilitation - A Comprehensive Clinical Approach for Positive Functional OutcomesFebruary 22, 2020 - February 23, 2020 presented at Texas Children's Hospital Houston, TX
The information presented in this course, while vestibular in nature, is combined with a comprehensive, interactive laboratory component. Its focus is on the class participants' "Monday Morning" issues. The structure and function of the vestibular system are thoroughly discussed along with testing, diagnostics and intervention strategies to address a large scope of symptoms and diagnoses. When therapists return to their jobs on Monday morning, they will likely encounter patients with problems related to upright instability. Although these patients may not be diagnosed with vestibular disorders, they are indeed equipped with vestibular systems. Without basic knowledge of vestibular structure and function, therapists will likely miss a crucial element of the initial evaluation--one that could very well lead to more successful intervention outcomes.
