Vestibular Rehabilitation Across the Continuum of Care

Linda B. Horn, PT, DScPT, MHS, GCS, NCS

Course Description: Dizziness is one of the most common reasons individuals seek medical care. Many peripheral vestibular pathologies can be successfully treated with vestibular rehabilitation. This introductory course provides instruction on the knowledge and skills to effectively evaluate, treat, and manage care for patients/clients with vestibular dysfunction in all practice settings. Topics include pertinent anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system, normal vestibular function and dysfunction, examination and interventions for patients/clients with vestibular dysfunction.

Course Objectives:

  • Ø Describe the anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system
  • Ø Perform a basic examination of the vestibular system
  • Ø Explain normal function and dysfunction in the vestibular system
  • Ø Differentiate between an otologic vs. neurologic cause of symptoms
  • Ø Accurately identify appropriate tests for making a working diagnostic hypothesis
