    Course material


    Vestibular Rehabilitation (Dizzyness) Course

    Using movement and exercise, heamthcare practitioners (such physios, bios, chiros, osteos, audiologists and ENT specialists) can effectively treat common causes of dizziness. This intense two day course covers the essentials of physiotherapy vestibular assessment and treatment. A strong emphasis is placed on differential diagnosis, clinical reasoning and treatment selection. Delegates will be taught to identify signs and symptoms that indicate central/sinister pathology. The vestibular rehabilitation techniques included in the course have a strong evidence base.

    The course is suitable for health practitioners with no experience of dizzy patients or those wishing to consolidate existing skills.

    Aims – By the end of the course delegates should be able to:

    • Understand basic vestibular anatomy and physiology (semicircular canal orientation+function and the vestibulo-ocular reflex in particular)
    • Have an overview of the main vestibular pathologies
    • Take a relevant subjective history including vestibular special questions
    • Carry out a clinical oculomotor examination
    • Clinically assess the VOR (dynamic visual acuity, infrared video analysis and head thrust test)
    • Clinically evaluate different types of nystagmus (central vs peripheral)
    • Carry out an appropriate outcome-based assessment of balance
    • Do positional testing for BPPV, interpret findings and treat using the appropriate manoeuvre (Epley, Simont and Horizontal canal)
    • Devise, evaluate and progress a patient-specific exercise-based rehabilitation programme
