Course Introduction
This intense two day course covers the essentials of clinical vestibular assessment and treatment. A strong emphasis is placed on differential diagnosis, clinical reasoning and treatment selection for vestibular disorders.

The cervical spine can cause symptoms of unsteadiness and imbalance. This course provides a scientific rationale for cervicogenic dizziness. Its diagnosis is one of exclusion. Differentiation between vestibular, central neurological and musculoskeletal causes of dizziness is highly important when assessing and treating the dizzy patient.

Course Outline
‧ Understand basic vestibular anatomy and physiology (semicircular canal orientation and function and the vestibulo- ocular reflex in particular)
‧ Have an overview of the main vestibular pathologies
‧ Take a relevant subjective history including vestibular special questions
‧ Carry out a clinical oculomotor examination
‧ Clinically assess the vestibulo-ocular reflex and vestibular symmetry (dynamic visual acuity, infrared video analysis and head thrust test)
‧ Clinically evaluate different types of nystagmus (central vs peripheral)
‧ Carry out an appropriate outcome-based assessment of balance
‧ Do positional testing for BPPV, interpret findings and treat using the appropriate manoeuvre (posterior, anterior and horizontal canal variants)

‧ Devise, evaluate and progress a patient-specific exercise-based rehabilitation programme
