Vestibular Rehabilitation Bootcamp

Vestibular Rehabilitation Bootcamp

Did you know vestibular dysfunction is seen in many neurological and musculoskeletal disorders? 

In fact, many recent studies have shown vestibular deficits to be present in numerous neurodegenerative diseases, acting as a significant contributor to their onset and progression.  Musculoskeletal disorders such as neck and back pain, scoliosis, and some forms of headaches also show a high coexisting incidence of vestibular deficits.  

Despite the growing body of literature on this topic, vestibular deficits are not often considered in evaluating and managing patients with conditions not normally attributed to vestibular dysfunction.  The lack of awareness and understanding creates a significant missed opportunity for clinicians to improve patient outcomes. 

How Do I Know This Course Is For Me?

Everyone can benefit from improved patient outcomes, and let’s face it: we all have those patients whom we cannot help or have helped but not as much as we thought we could. 

The first step to improving patient outcomes, and often the most difficult, is accepting that there is something that you, as a clinician, are overlooking. The missing link to what you may be overlooking is the understanding of how unidentified brain and vestibular dysfunction is costing your patients their desired outcomes and you the financial success attributed to those outcomes.  

The second step is where do I go to learn about what I do not know? That’s where Vestibular  Bootcamp comes into play. Designed by the leaders in Clinical Neuroscience and Functional  Neurology education, Vestibular Bootcamp provides you with current, accurate information about  vestibular dysfunction wrapped into a 2-day weekend of learn and do 

So, if you have little or no exposure to functional neurology or vestibular integration yet want to  improve patient outcomes while at the same time becoming more clinically eDicient, then this  course is a great fit for you.

Scholars Will Learn CLINICALLY RELEVANT INFORMATION PERTAINING TO:
  1. Vestibular Anatomy and Neurophysiology.  
  2. Vestibular Evolution and Development. 
  3. Vestibular Contribution to Musculoskeletal & Neurological Disease. 
  4. Top Clinical Indicators of Vestibular Dysfunction  
  5. Clinical Management of Vestibular Dysfunction 
  6. “The Linking Formula”
What Entrustable Professional Activity Should I Be Expected To Acquire:
  1. Recognize and evaluate the patient for vestibular dysfunction and how that dysfunction is  contributing to the patient’s condition. 
  2. Develop a treatment approach consisting of linking your current treatment with that involving  the vestibular system
Who is this class for?

This class is for practitioners looking to take their examination and treatment skills to the next level by focusing on the information gleaned from the efferent/motor system

The healthcare professionals that can attend this program are MD, DC, DO, PT, OT, ATC, LMT, ND, LAc, PA, NP, and CA (If accompanied by DC).
