Course Description

This seminar is limited to 16 places.

Please note that if you have previously attended Richard O’Hara’s 2 day Cervicogenic Dizziness & Vestibular Rehabilitation seminar there is no need to attend this 1 day BPPV as this material has already been covered.

BPPV is caused by calcium carbonate crystals (otoconia) becoming dislodged and floating freely within the ear. The crystals move with changes of head position causing vertigo. Patients most commonly complain of short duration vertigo when moving, such as rolling over in bed, bending forward and looking up.

The course includes:
•Anatomy, physiology and pathology
•Red flags/subjective assessment
•Clinical oculomotor examination
•BPPV assessment
•Treatment techniques
•References

After the course, delegates should be able to:
•Understand the pathophysiology of BPPV
•Identify red flags
•Identify central neurological/atypical presentations
•Carry out diagnostic manoeuvres and interpret findings
•Identify and carry out the appropriate treatment manoeuvres for the posterior, anterior and horizontal canals
