Concussions - 5 Reasons for Persistent Dizziness

Dec 08, 2022 - 12:00 (EST)
1 hour


As a busy clinician do you find that treating concussions can be a challenge at times, especially if dizziness is involved?

If so, you are not alone.

Research has found that dizziness after a concussion is the second most common symptom, after headaches, and is often associated with prolonged recovery.

Should we, therefore, conclude that a prolonged recovery is the natural history of a concussion which includes dizziness and set our expectations accordingly? Or are there factors that we can impact?

In this webinar, we will cover 5 common reasons why patients, including athletes, have persistent dizziness after a concussion and strategies that we can use to improve our outcomes.

Let’s make sure all of our patients are provided with the best environment to recover in.


Learning Objectives

By the end of this webinar with Kregg Ochitwa, you will be able to:

  1. Recognize the common reasons why someone may experience persistent dizziness after a concussion. 
  2. Explain to your patient/athlete the reason for their persistent dizziness. 
  3. Develop a framework to facilitate the best outcomes when treating persistent dizziness related to a concussion. 



This  60-minute webinar is appropriate for all physiotherapists (physical therapists) and any rehabilitation professional who works with people who suffer from dizziness, or who have experienced a concussion or other head trauma.

WARNING: Registration is limited to the first 500 participants.

The instructors
Kregg Ochitwa

Kregg has been a registered physical therapist since 1995. Over the years his caseload has shifted from solely orthopedic to a mix of orthopedic and vestibular. With this background he has also established a reputation for treating concussion, having treated athletes in the NFL, CFL, college ranks, WHL, high school athletes, and the weekend warrior.

In 1998, he took his first course in the field of vestibular rehabilitation. In 2008, he completed all of the requirements of the Vestibular Rehabilitation: a competency based course at Emory University, Atlanta Georgia. Since then he has continued to take ongoing courses throughout North America in regards to orthopedics, traumatic brain injury, and vestibular therapy. He has also been asked to teach weekend courses and present at various conferences throughout North America and Europe.

In 2010, Kregg opened North 49 Physical Therapy in his hometown of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The clinic has since grown from a staff of one to seven physical therapists, where over half of the caseload consists of patients with dizziness and/or balance issues.
