According to the Vestibular Disorders Association, as many as 35% of adults aged 40 years or older in the US have experienced vestibular dysfunction. This amounts to approximately 69 million Americans who have experienced some level of incapacity due to one of many types of vestibular disorders. The consequences of dizziness can be catastrophic – 30% of community dwelling adults over the age of 65 will experience a fall. This number goes up to 45% of people over the age of 75. This two day lecture and lab course will cover the anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system, proper vestibular evaluation procedures, and how to utilize those findings to determine whether a patient is appropriate for vestibular rehabilitation. In addition, we will cover treatment strategies for the more common vestibular disorders, including benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, unilateral and bilateral hypofunction, and cervicogenic dizziness, among others.
