This two-day advanced course is designed for physical or occupational therapists, who have prior experience in vestibular rehabilitation and are seeking to refine their clinical evaluation and treatment skills beyond the basics. Therapists who are comfortable with their fundamental skills will find this course helpful at adding more treatment options to successfully treat the complex dizzy patient. Patient diagnoses discussed will include cervical dizziness, atypical BPPV, anxiety, migraine, acoustic neuroma, superior canal dehiscence, conversion disorder and Mal de Debarquement. Focus will be placed on case study applications with careful analysis of history, diagnostic clinical findings and classification of dysfunctions to allow optimal customized treatment protocols. Clinical skills to be taught will include fistula screening, cervicogenic screening, BPPV treatments beyond the posterior canal (anterior/horizontal canals), acoustic neuroma management including exposure to facial rehabilitation techniques, migraine screening and treatments, and identification/management of psychological factors. All testing and treatment protocols presented will be evidence-based and clinically relevant to more effectively manage the dizzy patient. Lectures will intersperse the refining of clinical testing protocols with specific treatment strategies for a wide range of diagnoses. Instruction will be provided via lecture, videotapes, lab breakouts, detailed demonstrations and case studies. Each participant will receive a comprehensive manual giving details of all recommended testing and treatment protocols.
