Evaluating the Vestibular System: Determining, Balance, Coordination, and Processing Issues

The vestibular system including the brainstem, inner ear and midbrain is responsible for balance, coordination, and processing information from the brainstem to the midbrain and finally the forebrain. It plays a major role in coordinating information from our environment and making decisions on how we respond to this input. The physical, emotional, and neurological integration processes can be interrupted when the vestibular system is not functioning correctly.

The manifestations of vestibular damage are especially important in the evaluation of brainstem dysfunction injury. The circuitry of the vestibular system extends to a large part of the brainstem, and simple clinical tests of vestibular function can be formed to determine brainstem involvement. Knowing before the situation or condition escalates is paramount to achieving a more efficient, less stressful (both to the child and family) resolution.

This course will show you how to work with this complex sensory system. We will teach you how to evaluate systems and determine deficits and imbalances that can be affecting the person’s overall health and functional capacity. Remember, balance, posture, coordination, sensory processing, and all activities of daily living are intimately related to its proper function.

In this online program, Drs. Rosen and Watson will walk you through an understanding of the entire vestibular system, its anatomy, functions and impact on a person’s functional capacity.

Feedback from Our Students

Testimonial: Kim Miller, LMT

“I decided to take this course because it sounded interesting and I was curious to take a course taught by Dr. Rosen and Dr. Watson. I was hoping to gain a better understanding of the vestibular system and apply that knowledge to my massage therapy practice.

Three takeaways I’ve already shared with others are… The bones in the cranium move with every deep breath. The brain and entire body plays a part in maintaining balance. In thinking about the vestibular system, we can’t just look at the inner ear. Our fascial system is all interconnected, which allows for restrictions in the neck to be felt and tested for by observing how the legs react when the head is turned.

Having a new expanded understanding of how the body works is influencing my view of my own body and my work already. By knowing more, I am able to notice and respond to different cues from myself and my clients’ bodies.

I have a client who has chronic issues with dizziness. Through the process of taking this course I began approaching my work with her with more of a view of her full spine and alignment. In the past we had focused most of the work on her neck with good results, but not long lasting relief. I’m curious to see if with time she is able to hold on to the improvements longer now that I’m incorporating more work throughout.

I found this class to be very interesting and challenging. Thank you!!!”

“I took this program to learn more about the vestibular system and understand our importance in helping more and more patients.

The classes are very didactic. Learning from this couple is always wonderful – always ready to answer questions.

Learning more and more from this couple helps me to do my best for all my patients and be able to help more and more cases and families with the power of chiropractic.

A patient with a lot of vertigo and dizziness, was unable to work, taking medication for 2 months without any improvement, I applied what I learned on the course and after one session she only had mild vertigo when turning over in bed and after 2 more sessions she didn’t feel it nothing more, he went back to working and dancing and never took any medication again.

I’m simply addicted to learning from this couple, I don’t miss any of their courses and I guarantee, learning from them changes your life and practices in every way. I am very grateful for their lives and the opportunity they give us through all these incredible teachings.”
