Program Description

This program is a LIVE ONLINE WORKSHOP.  Vestibular Rehabilitation II is an advanced 16-hour, competency-based workshop, geared towards advanced diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and management of the “chronic dizzy patient”. This course is designed for individuals who have experience treating vestibular patients or have taken an entry-level vestibular course. This course will delve deeper into vestibular dysfunction, psychological components, and comorbidity management as it pertains to vestibular dysfunction and advanced rehabilitation techniques. A brief introduction to technology related to vestibular assessment and rehabilitation will also be a component of this course in order to provide insight on the continuum of care for the dizzy and balance disordered patient. Following the completion of this course and satisfactory results on the examination, the participant will be certified in advanced vestibular rehabilitation. 

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the workshop participants will be able to…

  • Recognize those migraine conditions that cause vestibular and balance dysfunction and the corresponding management strategies.
  • Demonstrate the ability to evaluate and treat multifactorial balance disorders.
  • Demonstrate how to use newly emerging gait-stride and cognitive protocols to improve function in the Parkinson patient.
  • Describe the personality disorders and corresponding manifestations resulting in psychogenic dizziness and imbalance and the best treatment options.
  • Assess and demonstrate advanced hybrid maneuvers for canalith repositioning for multiple comorbidities.
  • Identify patterns of nystagmus associated with single and multiple canal BPPV involvement and the gold-standard repositioning maneuvers.
  • Evaluate a “chronic dizzy patient” using the SPINS approach and perform an evidence-based examination protocol.
  • Integrate no/low-technology assessment protocols and explain emerging assessment equipment for patients with dizziness complaints.

Prerequisites

Prior American Institute of Balance Certification in Vestibular Rehabilitation, Concussion, and/or Vestibular Assessment & Management, or Vestibular Rehabilitation Certification through Emory University. 

Target Audience

Physical Therapist, PTA, Occupational Therapist, COTA, Audiologist, Medical Doctors (MD, DO).
