    Description:

    Disorders common to the orthopedic PT setting, such as a concussion or whiplash, can produce the trifecta of dizziness: “mild” brain injury, vestibular disorders (central and peripheral) and cervicogenic dizziness. The purpose of this course is to equip the physical therapist with the knowledge and skill, given a patient complaining of dizziness, to identify when a dangerous condition exists; to recognize common vestibular presentations; to differentiate these presentations from musculoskeletal conditions that may produce similar symptoms; to manage the basic issues; and to refer appropriately when needed. Topics will include the differential diagnosis and management of concussion, BPPV, and cervicogenic dizziness. We will emphasize determining which conditions are appropriate for PT interventions and which require referral. Physical therapists practicing in orthopedic, sports, acute and subacute settings will benefit from this course, as will PT’s with a background in vestibular rehabilitation but who are less comfortable managing the concurrent musculoskeletal issues.

    Course Objectives:

    At the conclusion of the program, the participant will be able to:

    • Identity when a dangerous condition exist
    • Recognize and differentiate common vestibular presentation
    • Discuss the ways in which concurrent cervical spine injury complicates the diagnossis and management of patients after a concussion
    • Discuss sensorimotor dysfunctions in the cervical spine and their common manifestations
    • Develop a treatment plan of care in the management of these patients

    This course is intended for physical therapists with experience Sitting Cx Segmental Mob.jpgmanaging patients with  dizziness complaints, but wish to improve in the differential diagnosis, manual examination and intervention in patients whose dizziness has a cervicogenic component. The neurologic therapist treating patients with vestibular diagnoses will learn to manage coexisting musculoskeletal impairments, while the orthopedic therapist will learn to manage dizziness due to non-musculoskeletal causes.
