New Online Vestibular Rehabilitation course approved for PT continuing education in California
Date:8/27/2013

Franklin, TN (PRWEB) August 27, 2013

Each year over 8 million physician and emergency room visits are attributed to complaints of dizziness and imbalance. Symptoms of vestibular disorders can vary greatly from one person to the next and the population range can vary as much as the symptoms. As our population ages many more people will be seeking medical assistance for dizziness and imbalance or injuries due to these complaints. Soldiers returning from combat with post blast or post concussion injuries often have underlying vestibular disorders. The ability for clinicians to perform screening tests for differential diagnosis is critical for the future health and well being of their patients. Only 8% of suspected BBPV patients will have a proper diagnosis prior coming to a therapist. This online vestibular rehab physical therapy continuing education course will provide a foundation for understanding proper evaluation and treatment techniques for various vestibular conditions.
