End Years of Vertigo in as Little as One Session
Vestibular rehabilitation is a very successful intervention technique that can change a person's life in as little as one treatment for BPPV, and two weeks for other types of dizziness. This seminar trains clinicians to develop clinical decision-making skills, determine who can benefit from vestibular rehabilitation, assist in therapy diagnosis and treatment strategies, and provide skilled treatment to improve the lives of many. Wrapping up, we will review documentation, goal-writing, and Medicare Functional Limitation Reporting, as well as case studies of common findings and problem-solving approaches for the challenging patient.
