Presenter: Jefferson Holm, PT, DPT, NCS

Topic: This lecture is designed to be an introductory course to vestibular rehabilitation.  It will cover the anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system, common diagnoses, and basic interventions.  Physical therapists will have likely received this information in school, so this lecture will provide them with a good review of foundational knowledge for treatment. Physical therapist assistants will find this lecture topic especially useful if the vestibular system was not a large focus in their school curriculum.  The goal of this talk is to provide an easily understandable overview of the vestibular system and vestibular rehabilitation for all in attendance.
