Overview

The  American Institute of Balance is excited to announce the Vestibular Rehabilitation and Concussion Management Certification workshop is now available in a hybrid model, consisting of combined online and live components! It is the same content as the well-respected AIB live, 3-day Vestibular and Concussion Rehabilitation Certification Workshop, with less travel and time away from home and work required! This new platform allows the clinician the flexibility to complete the online portion of the course at a self-pace pace without the demand of attending a pre-determined, scheduled workshop. This combined 30-hour course consists of 21 hours of self-paced online content, followed by a one-day, 9.0 hour live, hands-on course. 

After completion of the online component, participants have the option to attend the one-day hands-on clinical competency course. This will be conducted in 11 major US cities as the final component for certification. To ensure a complete, comprehensive learning experience, we encourage participants to attend the one-day, live, hands-on course AFTER completion of the online course.

Course Description

This 30 -hour course is geared towards the clinician interested in learning evidence-based management for both the Vestibular and Concussion (m-TBI) patient. This workshop is comprised of the Vestibular Rehabilitation Certification Workshop and a comprehensive Concussion Management module, consisting of evaluation and management tools for sports and non-sports related m-TBI. Evidence-based protocols will be presented, demonstrated, and practiced throughout both the online and live components of the course to ensure clinicians produce excellent outcomes. 

Content Overview

  • Psychogenic factors affecting VRT outcomes
  • BPPV diagnosis & treatment – Canalith Repositioning Maneuvers (CRM) with manual training
  • Evaluation and management of Vestibular Disorders, including BPPV
