Patients presenting to physical therapy now include a wider range of conditions that physical therapists need to be able to evaluate and treat as well as refer when it is appropriate. This course will focus on the evaluation of the eyes and their interconnection with the vestibular system in conditions such as concussion, central nervous system conditions such as multiple sclerosis and vestibular disorders. The course will include presentation and lab components to provide the clinician with opportunities to assess and perform examination and interventions that are evidence-based for that condition.
At the end of the course the learner will be able to:
1. Identify differences between central nervous system disorders and peripheral vestibular conditions.
2. Demonstrate oculomotor testing prior to intervention.
3. Differentiate common vestibular disorders.
4. Differentiate between peripheral and central disorders that are within our scope to treat.
5. Establish appropriate interventions for common vestibular disorders.
6. Utilize tests and measures for common vestibular dysfunctions.
7. Identify the examination findings that suggest appropriate vestibular Rehabilitation procedures be initiated.
8. Practice appropriate interventions for common vestibular disorders.
