What do you do when your patient is dizzy? This two-day introductory course will instruct therapists on how to assess and treat the dizzy patient. Dizziness can have many sources and this course will give therapists the tools to complete a differential diagnosis and identify those patients whose dizziness can be treated successfully by PTs.

Through lectures and ample hands-on labs, participants will learn how to apply and interpret various tests and measures and to perform treatment interventions. The course will focus on three common sources of dizziness that are treated by therapists: vestibular, cervicogenic and temporomandibular.
