PRESENTED BY THE APTANJ VESTIBULAR SIG
Vestibular migraines is a complex condition that manifests with a variety of symptoms from general lightheadedness to severe vertigo, nausea and imbalance. These symptoms can result in significant functional impairments and disabilities and can make developing an effective treatment plan difficult. It takes a comprehensive approach to education and treatment in order to successfully identify triggers and manage symptoms. This course is designed to explore the complexities of evaluating and treating patients with vestibular migraines. The learner will understand diagnostic criteria, differential diagnoses, important examination components and effective management techniques. Information will be provided on educating patients and assisting them in self-management of their condition. Learners will have the opportunity to examine the literature supporting these recommendations and learn from case study applications.
