Beyond BPPV: Understanding Vestibular Rehabilitation Course


Join Cheryl Wylie, Certified Vestibular Physiotherapist, in this 3 hour course titled Beyond BPPV – Understanding Vestibular Rehabilitation.

This online course will take your vestibular knowledge a step beyond the classic BPPV condition, where you will learn about the most common conditions that cause vestibular dysfunction and gain an understanding of vestibular rehabilitation.

Beyond Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), the foundation of vestibular therapy circles on the rehabilitation of Unilateral Vestibular Hypofunction (UVH). This course will focus on this, along with its counterpart, Bilateral Vestibular Hypofunction (BVH).

UVH and BVH result in reduced function of the vestibular system in either one or both ears. Patients typically report dizziness, vertigo, and imbalance along with reduced quality of life. The good news is that many of these patients are candidates for vestibular rehabilitation, so gaining an understanding of how to assess and implement a vestibular rehabilitation program will allow you to greatly impact their recovery.
