The vestibular system is located within the inner ear and when not working properly can wreak havoc on the balance and equilibrium of our balance system. This is because the vestibular system works in conjunction with other sensory inputs such as vision and proprioception to provide important information about posture and orientation.
Although BPPV is the most common cause of vertigo there is far more to consider when assessing and treating a patient with dizziness. In this new programme of courses you will explore anatomy and pathology of the vestibular system and make sure you know your meniere’s from you labyrinthitis.
