Acute vertigo can be caused by a range of conditions, from stroke to multiple sclerosis, vestibular migraine and concussion. There are also a number of conditions that specifically affect the peripheral vestibular system. Symptoms associated with these conditions, such as dizziness and imbalance, can be intermittent, transient or permanent, but they all can have a significant impact on an individual’s quality of life. Some of these vestibular dysfunctions can, however, be improved with vestibular rehabilitation. This course will discuss the various conditions that you might encounter when working with vestibular patients and explore the evidence base for physiotherapy management.


This course aims to introduce you to a range of vestibular pathologies.
