The information presented in this PT Vestibular Continuing Education Course is vestibular in nature combined with a comprehensive interactive laboratory component., It is actually focused on the class participant’ s “Monday Morning“ issues. Therapists will learn an extensive amount of information related to structure and function of the vestibular system as well as testing, diagnostics and intervention strategies to address a large scope of symptoms and diagnoses. When therapists return to their jobs on “Monday Morning“ they will encounter patients with problems related to upright instability. And although these patients may not be diagnosed with vestibular disorders, these patients are indeed equipped with vestibular systems. Without basic knowledge of vestibular structure and function, therapists will likely be missing a crucial element of the initial evaluation that may very well lead to more successful intervention outcomes.

A basic overview of vestibular function and anatomy as well as central nervous system interaction is provided. Hands-on laboratory sessions enhance the clinicians ability to properly perform testing techniques for vestibular disorders.

Options and considerations for creating treatment plans and long-term care management strategies are thoroughly discussed.
