Dizziness and Vestibular Rehabilitation in Elderly – 4 Hours



Dizziness and vertigo are common conditions among elderly individuals and can increase the risk of falls. There are various types of dizziness, including disorders of the vestibular system, central nervous system, cervical spine, and others. Dizziness can lead to a decline in functionality in this population. Therefore, physical and occupational therapists must recognize the signs and symptoms of dizziness in patients they are treating for other conditions, treat the root cause, and create treatment plans to reduce dizziness and restore functionality in the elderly. This course will help learners distinguish between the different types of dizziness and understand how to develop and implement treatment plans to manage this condition. While patients with dizziness often seek primary care, rehabilitation professionals must also be aware of this condition as it may present in patients already under their care.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to: 

  • Describe and define different types of dizziness that may occur in the elderly population.
  • Describe differential diagnoses of common causes of dizziness in the elderly population.
  • Describe how physical and occupational therapists assess a patient with complaints of dizziness in the rehabilitation setting.
  • Determine a treatment plan for patients with different types and causes of dizziness.
  • Describe the physical and occupational therapists’ role in the treatment of dizziness.
  • Describe the pharmacological treatment of dizziness.
  • Describe age-related and pathological causes of dizziness.
  • Discuss balance and fall prevention strategies in the elderly population and the impact of falls on this population.
