Vestibular hypofunction typically provokes signs and symptoms related to motion sensitivity, impaired balance, compromised gaze stability and chronic dizziness. In this series of case studies, Bernard Tonks discusses the assessment and management of four cases of vestibular hypofunction due to a variety of pathologies. Effective, evidence-based treatment interventions are reviewed in each case. Videos of nystagmus are incorporated into some of the cases to highlight the findings of the assessment. The recording includes questions from the attendees and Bernard's answers. This webinar will build on prior knowledge of vestibular rehabilitation. If you have no experience with vestibular rehabilitation it is recommended that you complete courses in the Vestibular Rehabilitation Programme prior to watching the video.


The aim of this webinar is to provide clinical reasoning through case study examples in the assessment and management of patients with Vestibular Hypofunction due to a variety of pathologies.

The case studies were a fantastic opportunity to test and consolidate my learning. Bernard goes through each case study and discusses the most important info from it, highlights the meaning behind each sign or symptom and clarifies their relevance of them in the context.

Highly recommend this course to anyone working with vestibular patients. Clear, concise, very informative, a great demonstration of assessment and treatments, excellent handout and good communication of applied clinical reasoning.
Ashleigh Leeson
Well done for this webinar. Coming from a background with very limited knowledge around vestibular hypofunction, I found this course very helpful in understanding the difference in clinical presentation and plans of treatment for different vestibular diagnoses, especially with Meniere's disease, BPPV and vestibular migraines.

Bernard explained the testing and how he related the results to the pathologies very simply using case studies. I have learned a lot today and would definitely recommend this course. It has greatly helped my clinical reasoning skills!

Physioplus has always been a great platform for everyone in the Physiotherapy profession as well as other health care professions to learn about various different conditions. Moreover, this webinar has given a great overview of the case studies, which has changed the way we assess, diagnose and treat the patient. All thanks to Bernard for such a detailed discussion and Physioplus for hosting the webinar.

Excellent webinar. I learned so much. I did a vestibular course some years ago. This webinar has helped to consolidate my knowledge especially with differential diagnosis and I feel more confident in being able to design a treatment programme for such patients.
