Description

This course is based on 11 chapters from Vestibular Rehabilitation, Fourth Edition, by Susan J. Herdman and Richard A. Clendaniel. The authors are recognized as the world’s leading authorities on the subject, and the book has been called “the field’s definitive text on the management of vestibular diseases and disorders.” These chapters present a thorough discussion of therapeutic assessment of disorders of the peripheral vestibular system, provide detailed explanations of appropriate rehab for patients with vestibular hypofunction or non-vestibular dizziness, and deliver a wealth of assessment tools, exercises, and resources that will be immediately helpful in the clinic. Vestibular management of clients with BPPV, vestibular hypofunction, post head trauma, cervicogenic dizziness, non-vestibular dizziness and more as well as the role of emerging technologies such as virtual reality, sensory substitution devices, and vestibular implants are included in this evidence based and updated course. This course written by vestibular neurorehabilitation specialists and MDs, will be useful to any rehab therapist who treats patients with vestibular dysfunction or non-vestibular dizziness. (Note: Though this course is primarily written by PTs for PTs, OTs will benefit greatly from this comprehensive in depth vestibular course as it also relates directly to OT issues.)-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------COURSE OBJECTIVES--After successfully completing this continuing education course, the learner should be able to: 1.
