Description
Using Differential Diagnosis to Evaluate the Dizzy Patient There has been an explosion of new research and interest into dizziness, balance control, and the role of the vestibular system with various pathologies. Physical therapists now have a primary role in treating patients with dizziness caused by inner ear problems, TBI, concussion, migraine, and whiplash. This has created a new and unique patient population seeking physical therapy services. With the myriad of symptoms that can accompany dizziness, as a therapist, how do you make sense of it all?
The rehabilitation of the dizzy patient requires a thorough understanding of the causes of dizziness from a neurological and orthopedic perspective and the relationship between the vestibular system and other systems. This course will provide the knowledge to perform a thorough evaluation of the dizzy patient. Emphasis will be placed on the differential diagnosis process to identify the exact cause of dizziness. Lab sessions will focus on hands-on examination and treatment techniques. This course is a must for anyone treating patients with dizziness in their clinics.
