What will we be doing/learning?

  • We will discuss the uniqueness of functional anatomy within the vestibular apparatus, discussing the challenges of dysequilibrium assessments.
  • We will break down the three systems contributing to equilibrium and how to know when the problem of origin is more likely in each system.
  • Common orthopedic testing for vestibular issues will be discussed and demonstrated, including eye movements, proprioceptive testing, and vestibular testing.
  • We will review how structures of the vestibular system can be impacted by vascular changes, mineral changes, head injuries, and connective tissue issues.
  • Clinical pearls specific to functional anatomy will be discussed, so examinations with patients can direct the clinician where to start on cases.
  • Perturbations of the proprioceptive system and how it relates to global compensatory patterns will de also be demonstrated.
  • Common pathophysiologies of the vestibular system will also be discussed, and how they relate to equilibrium assessments.

This might be the missing link in your neck and headache care

  • Attendees will leave the course with an immediate plan of where to start with all patients, to build their confidence in providing more effective treatments.
  • 1-2 Instructors circulate to answer questions and optimize learning, with hands-on help for palpation, assessment, and treatment guidance.
  • Course includes: course handout PDF, learning tools for take-home help

Course Objectives

The interactive lecture will include:

  • Discussion of equilibrium and the three systems that combine to make balance possible
  • Full functional anatomy overview of inner ear, eye movements, and proprioception
  • Assessments for the vestibular system, with a standard operating system to ease confusion
  • Corrective exercise strategies for improving vestibular balance
  • Nutritional support for improving nerve conduction and endolymph/perilymph flow in the balance system
  • Educational strategies for implementation into home and clinical practice
  • Live case study demonstrations
  • Handouts (PDF) with helpful tips, protocols, and programming
  • Recording of class for your perusal after the course via Vimeo
