What do you do when your patient is dizzy? Will your patient even respond to rehab therapy intervention? This introductory in-person course includes 2 evening lectures and a full-day lab and 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 successfully treated by Physical Therapists.

Through lecture and lab practice the participants will learn how to apply and interpret various tests and measure and to perform treatment interventions. There will be an emphasis on three common sources of dizziness that are treated by therapists: cervicogenic, temporomandibular and vestibular.

The content of this course is directly related to the provision of Physical Therapy as outlined in the Guide to Physical Therapy Practice. Musculoskeletal Patter D and F, Neuromuscular Pattern A and D. Introductory content is consistent with post professional education.
