    Vestibular and Balance Rehabilitation

     

    The objective of this course is to improve the capacity of doctors and therapists to assess and treat individuals who experience dizziness and imbalance using evidence-based methods.

    The course will cover fundamental theoretical concepts related to vestibular system and its disorders.

    Additionally, participants will receive hands-on training to develop their skills in conducting assessments and applying management strategies for dizziness and imbalance disorders. 

    General outlines:

    • An overview of vestibular anatomy and physiology.
    • Understanding sensory integration of equilibrium.
    • Disorders affecting vestibular functions.
    • Peripheral versus central vestibular disorders.
    • BPPV diagnosis and treatment – Canalith Repositioning Maneuvers training.
    • Gaze stabilization training.
    • Balance progression exercises.

    Specific Objectives:

    • Understand the anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system.
    • Differentiate between peripheral and central vestibular disorders.
    • Discuss evidence based assessment strategies for people with dizziness and imbalance disorders.
    • Recognize horizontal and posterior canal BPPV and to be able to effectively treat the condition.
    • Design and perform a tailored plan of treatment for people with dizziness and imbalance disorders.
    • Develop evidence-based skills in the management of balance disorders.
