Program Description

Based on demand, we have combined our popular and highly regarded Vestibular Rehabilitation and Concussion Certification workshops into one four-day workshop.  Now you can obtain dual certification for the cost of one. 

This competency-based, workshop presents rehabilitation and therapy protocols to manage identifiable vestibular and balance system disorders, including cortical and labyrinthine concussion. Evidence based protocols will be presented, demonstrated and practiced to ensure therapists and clinicians produce excellent outcomes. The workshop will include significant hands-on practice to increase skill competencies. An online examination will follow to complete the certification process. CEU acquisition is independent of the certification.

Content Includes

• An overview of vestibular anatomy and physiology
• Understanding sensory integration of equilibrium
• Disorders affecting vestibular function
• Cortical assessment
• Vestibular evaluation
• Cortical and labyrinthine concussion differentiation
• Interactive concussion management strategies
• Extensive training materials for therapy programs
• Neurophysiology of central compensation
• VRT protocols: adaptation, habituation, and substitution for patient-centered therapy
• Psychogenic factors affecting VRT outcomes
• BPPV diagnosis & treatment – Canalith Repositioning Maneuvers (CRM) with manual training
• Putting it all together and case studies
