Description:
Internationally recognized leaders in vestibular rehabilitation presented their cutting-edge research at the 1st International Vestibular Rehabilitation Conference sponsored by the Academy of Academy of Neurologic PT, APTA. This session will focus on summarizing the key advances in and future directions of vestibular rehabilitation presented at the conference. The speakers will discuss evidence-based differential diagnosis of central from peripheral vestibular disorders, applying a new understanding of the biomechanics of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) to interpret atypical nystagmus patterns observed during positional testing, using principles of motor learning to optimize the performance of the vestibular ocular reflex in individuals with vestibular dysfunction, and implementing the ideal쳌 particle repositioning maneuver based on new biomechanics of BPPV. Attendees will learn about exciting new technologies that may improve care for persons with balance and vestibular disorders. Cases will be used to highlight the differential diagnosis process and therapeutic interventions.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

1. Use evidence-based clinical decision rules to differentiate peripheral from central vestibular dysfunction in acute vestibular syndromes.

2. Apply principles of motor learning to optimize performance of the vestibular ocular reflex in individuals with vestibular hypofunction.

3. Interpret unusual patterns of nystagmus observed during positional testing and implement the ideal쳌 particle repositioning maneuver based on biomechanics of BPPV.

4. Discuss technologies that are currently being developed around the world that may improve care for persons with balance and vestibular disorders.
