Overview

In regards to vestibular therapy can you relate to any of these:

  • You attended a vestibular therapy course, it seemed straightforward during the course, but now that you are back in the clinic it does not seem so.
  • You have taken training in this field, but you feel isolated as there is no one you can bounce ideas off of.
  • You attended a course, but as it has been a while and you do not see a lot of vestibular patients you have some gaps in trying to remember what you learned.
  • You are dabbling in the area of vestibular therapy.
  • Or, you simply enjoy learning and want to improve your understanding of vestibular therapy.

Let’s face it, vestibular therapy, while rewarding, is a challenging field. We get it. Given this, we want to share what we have observed over the years regarding common pitfalls with vestibular therapy.


Learning Objectives

By the end of this webinar you should be able to:

  1. Differentiate if nystagmus is due to a vestibular condition or a false positive finding.
  2. Identify why your treatment for BPPV, vestibular hypofunction and concussion might not be effective. 

Our bottom line is that by attending this webinar we will uncover some potential blind spots that may be impacting your confidence and outcomes.  


Audience

This is a foundational/intermediate-level vestibular therapy webinar for physical therapists and any other medical practitioners who see patients with dizziness.

We look forward to having the opportunity to share with you on May 1st, 2024.

The instructors
Kregg Ochitwa
BScPT, CWCE, CredMDT

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.
