Recognizing, assessing and treating vestibular disorders with an appropriate plan is dependent on careful differential diagnosis. Successful vestibular interventions must be based on understanding the complexities of thevestibular, oculomotor, or sensory systems they are targeting. This interactive course includes lab sessions to practice treatment techniques and exercises for clinical problem-solving and successful outcomes. The approach presents vestibular treatments as a system of exercises and movements that the clinician learns to select, grade, and develop as a continuum for the patient. The course covers treatments across the age spectrum, including childhood paroxysmal vertigo, BPPV, Meniere’s disease, ototoxicity, bilateral disorders, mal de debarquement, migraine associated vertigo, traumatic vertigo, acoustic neuroma, central vertigo, and disequilibrium of aging.
