Beyond the Basics: Management of Typical and Atypical BPPV

Course Description:

This 1-day course is designed to provide participants with the latest evidence and foundation to manage the challenging BPPV patient.  The majority of patients with BPPV can be treated with simple canalith repositioning; unfamiliar and amiguous findings often prevent optimal management of the more challenging cases.

The goal of this course is to take the clinician to the next level in managing individuals with BPPV. The clinicians will review screening and examination techniques for making differential diagnoses with individuals with positional vertigo. Develop the ability to perform interventions and modify techniques and approaches when confronted with atypical findings or results will be emphasized. The course will review the available evidence to support clinical decision-making with multiple case studies.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own case studies for discussion to enhance the learning process. (click here to view brochure)
