The course will focus on the assessment and treatment of patients with vertigo and dysequilibrium from unusual vestibular causes. The course is designed for clinicians (PT & OT) with prior vestibular rehabilitation course work and clinical experience. Material covered will include advanced techniques for treating anterior and horizontal canal BPPV, central causes of dizziness (including concussion), identification and treatment of cervicogenic dizziness, persistent postural perceptual dizziness, migraine and other unusual vestibular disorders. As vestibular disorders occur across the lifespan and with various disorders, this information is applicable to a large patient population with symptoms of dizziness.
- Diagnose anterior semicircular canal BPPV, and horizontal semicircular canal BPPV, including BPPV affecting the anterior arm of the horizontal semicircular canal
- Choose the various appropriate treatment techniques for anterior semicircular canal BPPV, and horizontal semicircular canal BPPV, including BPPV affecting the anterior arm of the horizontal semicircular canal
- Identify the causes of cervicogenic dizziness
- Interpret a detailed examination of the patient to differentiate between vestibular and cervicogenic causes of dizziness
- Plan a treatment program for individuals with cervicogenic dizziness, including manual traction techniques for the cervical spine and cervical kinesthetic retraining techniques
- Identify central causes of dizziness, including CVA, brain injury, and concussion
- Develop a treatment program based on the nature of the cause of dizziness for a patient with CVA, brain injury, or concussion
- Modify treatment programs based on the nature of the cause of dizziness for a patient with CVA, brain injury, or concussion
- Evaluate other causes of dizziness such as chronic subjective dizziness or migraine associated dizziness
- Develop a treatment program based on the nature of the cause of dizziness for chronic subjective dizziness or migraine associated dizziness
- Modify a treatment program based on the nature of the cause of dizziness for chronic subjective dizziness or migraine associated dizziness
Designed for PTs, PTAs, OTs, and OTAs. Prior vestibular rehabilitation course work and experience treating patients with vestibular disorders are necessary before taking this course.
Richard Clendaniel, PT, Ph.D., FAPTA, is an assistant professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Doctor of Physical Therapy Division, and in the Department of Head & Neck Surgery and Communication Sciences at the Duke University School of Medicine. He received his MS in Physical Therapy and Ph.D. in Behavioral Neuroscience from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and completed a post-doctoral fellowship in neuro-otology with Susan Herdman, Ph.D., PT. He previously served as director of the Vestibular Rehabilitation program at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery. He is on the medical advisory board for the Vestibular Disorders Association (VEDA) and on the board of directors for the American Balance Society. Dr. Clendaniel maintains an active practice treating patients with vestibular disorders and dizziness. His primary research is in the assessment of the vestibular system and the plasticity of the vestibular system following injury.
This was an exceptional course! I've always struggled with understanding the vestibular system well enough to effectively assess and treat patients with dizziness and balance problems. But after taking the introductory course from Dr. Clendaniel called, Vestibular Rehabilitation: Evaluation and Management of Individuals with Dizziness and Balance Disorders, followed by this course, Vestibular Rehabilitation: Advanced, I have a much better understanding and I feel equipped to begin more accurately assessing and more effectively treating patients with dizziness and balance problems. I can't say enough about how great these two courses from Dr. Clendaniel are, and I highly recommend them if you want to sharpen your knowledge and skills and be more effective at helping patients with these often debilitating problems. -Spencer S., PT
“Years ago, I attended a course by Dr. Clendaniel and was impressed not only by his level of expertise but by his presentation - his ability to teach therapists with a wide range of experiences. As I am preparing to step back into vestibular rehab Dr Clendaniel was my first choice. Given the quality of this weekend's webinar my selection was correct.” -- Mary E Schmutz, PT
“It is always a pleasure to take one of Dr. Clendaniel's course offerings. He is well organized, patient and has a very accessible teaching style. I am impressed with the amount of information packed into this 2-day advanced vestibular rehab course, and with the amount of resources I had available for immediate use in this clinic. The ERI course moderator was cheerful and essential in keeping this live stream course on track throughout the weekend. ERI made taking a live-stream/ online course easy and accessible, even for those who might be new to this learning format.” -Lisa M Rohrbaugh, DPT
'Rick is a leader in the field of vestibular rehabilitation and his material and the way it is presented proves the point. Rick is able to present some very complex material in a manner that is understandable. He shares personal experiences in order to illuminate some of the more colorful and confusing parts of vestibular rehabilitation. He consistently utilizes best practice and provides research and resources to support his perspectives. He answers all questions posed with similar support. I enjoyed the course very much and found that it clarified many questions that I had had for some time. Many thanks.' -Philip T, Class Participant
