According to the Vestibular Disorders Association, nearly 100 million Americans have experienced a vestibular
problem at some point in their lives. There are numerous causes of vestibular dysfunction and the symptoms are
many. Head trauma, cervical dysfunction, soft tissue and bony malalignment, bacterial or viral infections, are just
some of the causative factors relating to headache, dizziness and vertigo related syndromes. This workshop is
designed to enhance participants' awareness of the various indicators relating to headaches, dizziness, vertigo,
gait and balance dysfunctions. Individuals with a diagnosed vestibular problem who also exhibit symptoms have
an incidence of falling that is 12 times that of the general population. Overall, the cost of medical care for patients
with balance disorders exceeds $1 billion per year in the US. Getting effective treatment is frequently complicated
by the challenge of diagnosing the specific source of the problem and finding clinicians with the knowledge and
experience to treat these individual co-morbid diagnoses.
This workshop will identify the broad based aspects relating to the complicated dizzy/vertigo/headache/balance
compromised patient. There will be an overview of the multiple diagnoses and many syndromes associated with
complicated patients who exhibit potential vestibular dysfunction. A review of anatomy will be provided, as well
as treatment options detailing different manual therapy approaches to calming the variety of symptoms relating to
patients suffering from multiple diagnoses.
