Online Workshop Vestibular Rehabilitation II Certification
Vestibular Rehabilitation II is an advanced, self-paced, 12-hour online course geared towards a differential diagnosis of complex diseases and disorders and management of the “chronic dizzy patient.” This course is designed for individuals who have experience treating vestibular patients or have taken an entry-level vestibular course. This course will delve deeper into vestibular dysfunction, psychological components, complex diagnoses, and rehabilitation techniques for complex case management. Following the completion of this course and satisfactory results on the examination, the participant will be certified in advanced vestibular rehabilitation.
After completion of the online course, participants will be able to:
Recognize those migraine conditions that cause vestibular and balance dysfunction, and the corresponding management strategies.
Demonstrate the ability to differential diagnose complex conditions with vestibular and balance dysfunction.
Describe the personality disorders and corresponding manifestations resulting in psychogenic dizziness and imbalance, and the best treatment options.
Assess and demonstrate advanced hybrid maneuvers for canalith repositioning for multiple comorbidities.
Identify patterns of nystagmus associated with single and multiple canal BPPV involvement and the gold-standard repositioning maneuvers.
Evaluate a “chronic dizzy patient” using the SPINS approach and perform an evidence-based examination for complex conditions.
Integrate no/low-technology assessment protocols and explain emerging assessment equipment for patients with dizziness complaints.
Formulate an appropriate plan of care including a treatment regimen for many complex vestibular and balance-related disorders.
