Vestibular Rehabilitation:

An Introductory Course

Summary


Two day course aimed at introducing physiotherapists to common vestibular disorders such as BPPV, vestibular neuritis/labyrinthitis, Ménière’s disease, bilateral vestibular hypofunction, migraine associated dizziness and central vestibular pathologies. By having practical components and video examples, the objective of this course is to equip delegates with the knowledge and skills to take a thorough history of the dizzy patient, perform a comprehensive objective examination and develop an up‐to‐date evidence based management plan.
