University Hospital Motol
Dr. Ondřej ČAKRT, Ph.D.
Organizer:Assoc. Prof. Alena Kobesova, MD, PhD
1. To present the current knowledge of vestibular physiology and mechanisms underlying vestibular compensation
2. Demonstrate how vestibular rehabilitation is utilized to help the recovery of balance function.
Vestibular rehabilitation is based on improving the natural phenomenon called Vestibular Compensation that occurs after acute vestibular loss.
Central compensation implies three main mechanisms namely: adaptation, substitution and habituation. This compensation aided by the rehabilitation strategies aims to compensate and/or correct the underused or misused visual, proprioceptive and vestibular inputs involved in the postural control.
The course is designed to teach the student how to clinically examine patients with vertigo and how to perform vestibular rehabilitation (accompanied by manual medicine procedures according to the Prague School) in patients with BPPV, unilateral vestibular loss and central dizziness.
The course is limited to licensed health professionals (MD, DO, PT, DC, OT, ATC)
