North American Seminars Introduces Vestibular Rehabilitation - Examination and Treatment, a New Physical Therapy Online Continuing Education Course
Date:4/30/2013

Franklin, TN (PRWEB) April 30, 2013

Each year over eight 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. Many people cannot explain their symptoms and their complaints can range from light-headedness to being clumsy. The ability for clinicians to perform screening tests for differential diagnosis is critical for the future health and well being of their patients. Only eight percent of suspected BBPV patients will have a proper diagnosis prior to coming to a therapist. Will you be able to differentiate the symptoms and underlying causes?

This physical therapy continuing education online course will provide a detailed overview of selected vestibular examination and treatment techniques. Specifically, the objectives of this physical therapy online continuing education are:

  • To Perform specific oculomotor and vestibular function testing and understand the implications of the findings. To include:
  • Neutral Primary Gaze Position Test
  • Eccentric Gaze Holding Test
