This course aims to introduce physiotherapists to the assessment and treatment of dizziness and balance problems resulting from vestibular disorders. Participants will be able to differentiate between central and peripheral vestibular disorders, treat those who are suitable and refer those who are not to appropriate specialists. It begins with a discussion of normal postural control mechanisms and how dysfunctions in these mechanisms lead to complaints of dizziness, vertigo, imbalance, gait disturbances and falls. Clinical tests of balance and vestibular function, including positional testing, and the significance of abnormal findings, will be demonstrated, and practiced.
