Course Description:

Whether you want to treat the root cause of dizziness faster, enhance your clinic’s services for vestibular patients, or add personal value within a large organization, this program will get you where you want to go.

Created by one of the most trusted names in vestibular rehabilitation, The Ultimate Guide to Treating Dizziness, Vertigo, and Vestibular Disorders will teach you today’s top strategies for efficiently evaluating and resolving may common diagnoses. And the results are incredible. Clinicians have seen countless patients --- from sedentary retirees to high-level athletes – rediscover the joys of dizziness-free living using the interventions you’ll learn in this program.

Join Dr. Jamie Miner as she shares a proven framework for rehabilitation that combines today’s best practices with over 25 years of experience helping patients overcome vestibular disorders in hospitals, rehab centers, home health settings, SNFs, and outpatient facilities.

If you’re chasing symptoms without getting to the “why” of your patient’s impairment, you’re losing time, money and referrals. This course is your path to delivering results for your patients.
