Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo is the most common cause of vertigo in adults, resulting in over 1.5 million visits to the ED in the US each year. With proper assessment and maneuvers, the vast majority of cases can be effectively treated, alleviating patients of debilitating symptoms and decreasing their risk of falls at the same time. Grow your clinical practice and expand your skills to confidently treat this dizzy population!
Neurology Primer: Clinical Approaches to TMD
This full day will be based upon on a focused head and neck examination, with a special overview on the TMJ, and its management procedures.
