Vestibular Rehabilitation - Detailed Course Description


Hands-On Seminars is proud to present this Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy Certification Program with immediate clinical applications. Unlike other Vestibular courses this HOS program teaches precisely the clinically relevant information for the treatment of vestibular dysfunction.

Course Description:
This evidence-based course will train clinicians in the practical management of vestibular disorders. The course will include instruction in anatomy and physiology, medical management, pathology, detailed bedside examination and treatment skills. The material will be presented in a lecture, lab and video case study format. Competence in the performance of a comprehensive office / bedside examination and treatment skills will be addressed in a lab format. The seminar is intended to enhance the clinician’s ability to evaluate the appropriateness and effectiveness of VRT for common vestibular disorders. Practical application of VRT to a variety of practice settings (outpatient, acute care, SNF, ER) will be discussed. An emphasis will be placed on the management of BPPV variants and vestibular hypofunction.

This is my 4th course with Hands-On Seminars and I would highly recommend it to my colleagues. The instructors are extremely friendly and knowledgeable and made the courses interesting. The small class size helps to receive greater attention during lab sessions.
