Course Objectives

  1. By the end of the course, participants will be able to correctly identify 5 key components of anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system in relation to vestibular dysfunction.
  2. By the end of the course, participants will be able to correctly describe the role of vestibular anatomy in benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV).
  3. By the end of the course, participants will be able to independently describe the mechanism of BPPV for both physician and patient education
  4. By the end of the course, participants will be able to demonstrate 3 vestibular examination special tests for BPPV.
  5. By the end of the course, participants will be able to demonstrate 3 vestibular examination techniques for balance testing in vestibular dysfunction.
  6. By the end of the course, given a case study of traumatic whiplash, participants will be able to list the components of appropriate screening for differential diagnosis including red flags.
  7. By the end of the course, participants will be able to list 3 key studies supporting canalith repositioning techniques as intervention for vestibular dysfunction.
  8. By the end of the course, participants will be able to demonstrate the correct sequence of positions for canalith repositioning techniques for the posterior canal.
  9. By the end of the course, participants will be able to demonstrate the correct sequence of positions for canalith repositioning techniques for the horizontal canal..

Course Rationale

This course will provide attendees with a relevant review of anatomy and physiology and how it relates to function of the vestibular system and the diagnosis of BPPV.  Upon completing this course, participants will have a deeper understanding of how the vestibular system works including mechanisms and contributions from other regions.  This deeper understanding will allow the participant to more completely and fully assess and manage patients with vestibular dysfunction, specifically BPPV and vestibular hypofunction.  VR is an excellent course for those that work in the outpatient setting and would like to feel more comfortable with Vestibular pathologies.  This course is designed for students, PTAs, OTs and PTs regardless of background in vestibular education.
