Event Overview
Welcome message:
Balance Dysfunction is seen in patients with a variety of pathologies across all practice settings and across the lifespan and may have diverse causes. This two-day day advanced evidence-based course is designed for physical and occupational therapists who have a basic knowledge of balance dysfunction and would like to refine their skills. This course will provide the participant with the skills to determine the cause of imbalance, employ appropriate outcome measures, and implement treatment. All examination and intervention strategies discussed will be evidence based and relevant to the patient with balance dysfunction. Vestibular, neurological, and orthopedic causes of imbalance will be discussed including pathologies such as stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, cerebellar dysfunction, total joint arthroplasties, lumbar spine dysfunction, and vestibular dysfunction. Special consideration will be given to pathologies such as BPPV, cervicogenic causes of dizziness and imbalance, concussion, traumatic brain injury and higher level balance training, and fall risk assessment and intervention. Participants will learn both impairment and disease specific examination techniques and will be given guidelines to identify the right examination techniques for specific diagnoses. Recommendations will be based on the APTA Neurology Section EDGE guidelines for outcome measures. Clinical skills that will be taught include assessment of sensory and motor systems that contribute to balance, cervicogenic screening, ocular motor examination, BPPV treatments, higher level balance testing, treatment of balance dysfunction across the spectrum. Laboratory time will be provided for practice of examination and intervention skills. Participants will apply the material learned in small group case application for both examination and intervention.
