I. Incidence & Diagnosis of Vestibular & Balance Disorders
»» Age and population
»» Undiagnosed / misdiagnosed
Speech-Language Pathologists & Audiologists - This program is offered for 0.6 CEUs
(Intermediate level, Professional Area).
According to the Vestibular Disorders Association, over 90 million Americans age 17 and older, have experienced a
dizziness or balance problem at some point in their lives. Almost 8 million people in the US have a problem with balance
that has lasted over 3 months and 2.5 million report a chronic dizziness problem. With the large amount of baby boomers
entering “retirement age”, there is increased concern about falling. Most people over the age of 70 report some problem
with dizziness and balance. Balance-related falls account for more than one-half of the accidental deaths in the elderly. In
addition, 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 problems.
II. Anatomy of the inner Ear & Function of Parts
»» Inner ear anatomy and function
»» Neurophysiology of balance
This interactive workshop will cover the anatomy, physiology and function of the vestibular system and the vestibular
system’s important role in balance and mobility. It is designed to give therapists and clinicians essential information needed
to assess and treat uncomplicated vestibular dysfunction as well as incidence, diagnosis and treatment of balance related
disorders. Participants will learn the various types of vestibular disorders, how they affect different populations and baseline
clinical tools for appropriate evaluation and treatment strategies. Case studies and hands-on labs will be used to bring real
world relevance.
