Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vestibular Rehabilitation 

This course will cover, on an intermediate level, the basic knowledge and skills required to assess and treat the most common vestibular disorders. While this course covers almost all the techniques needed to successfully treat these patients, there is quite obviously a lack of hands-on instruction and practice. Anyone looking to develop a vestibular rehabilitation program for their practice should seek hands-on practical courses to help refine and perfect their clinical skills.
