#THIRDTHURSDAY: Peripheral Vestibular Hypofunction: Update in Clinical Practice Guidelines

OCS, FAAOMPT, Cert.MDT, CSCS & Steven Tijerina, PT, DPT, Cert. VRT, to share their knowledge and expertise on "Peripheral Vestibular Hypofunction: Update in Clinical Practice Guidelines ".

Every year, 69 million Americans are impacted by dizziness. The 2nd most common cause of vertigo is vestibular hypofunction, comprising approximately 15% of reported cases. Patients with unilateral vestibular hypofunction commonly report dizziness, visual blurring with head movement, and/or imbalance. Physical Therapy is a known evidenced-based treatment option for patients suffering from peripheral vestibular dysfunction.

If you are interested in understanding the current evidence related to examination and treatment, please join us as Dr. Shah and Dr. Tijerina review the APTA’s updated clinical practice guidelines for unilateral vestibular hypofunction. 

What to expect: 

Upon completion of the program, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the clinical presentation for unilateral and bilateral vestibular hypofunction.
  • Describe current evidence regarding clinical examination for vestibular hypofunction.
  • Describe current evidence regarding treatment decisions and program design.
  • Apply vestibular rehabilitation strategies for optimal recovery for patients with Unilateral & Bilateral Vestibular Hypofunction.
