Have you ever found yourself wishing you could be a little more well rounded in areas of therapy you don’t typically see? In academics, we are trained to be a clinician capable of practicing in all areas of treatment. For most of us, as we progress in our career, we develop speciality skills in certain areas, while leaving behind some of the basic concepts we knew in others. And every so often we may see a patient and think “darn it, I wish I remembered this”.
Join us for a lecture reviewing the basics of VESTIBULAR REHAB. Presented by an expert in the field, Alexia Miles, MPT, geared towards the rest of us who just need a good refresh on the basics.
