Vertigo is a common complaint that is often confusing – from the cause to the most appropriate management. Causes range from benign conditions, to vascular and neoplastic conditions, so it is essential for the Chiropractic Physician to have a thorough confident understanding of this condition.  There are many different causes of vertigo that are effectively treated in a Chiropractic office, so it is essential to determine if these are present. This course is the first part of a course designed to address the common clinical condition of vertigo. Topics covered include review of anatomy of the vestibular system, including both the anatomic structures and neurologic pathways. Discussion of vestibular nuclei, vestibular apparatus, anatomy and neurologic control of extraocular muscles, as well as a practical discussion of how vertigo and nystagmus develop, and the causes of each.   This also includes a detailed discussion of the causes of vertigo from infectious processes to trauma, concussion, blast injury and the common condition of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). Specific clinical details of how to determine cause of mechanical vertigo, as well as multiple testing procedures and treatments for BPPV and other conditions are included. For your patients that have vertigo, this is an essential course for understanding of the cause and treatment of this common condition.

More anatomy then treatment

Part 1 was filled with more anatomy than treatment and causes of vertigo. The speaker is laying a good foundation for part 2 and part 3 of this course.

Get your thinking cap on!

The presentation of the material was fluid and concise. Great reference back to the manipulation and its effects on the neurologic system.

Disappointed that there was no treatment mentioned

Lots of good (technical) information, but would have liked to have had a at least a little treatment or patient management included in Part 1.
