On January 25th, 2017 physical therapist Julie Dmochowski, PT, DPT of Onondaga Physical Therapy attended a full-day seminar in Syracuse, NY titled: The Hands-on Guide to Vestibular Rehabilitation: Clinical Decision Making to Treat Vertigo, Dizziness, and Balance Disorders. The course consisted of over 7 hours of content and hands-on application of skills in order to most effectively evaluate and manage the dizzy patient.
The course provided assessment techniques to identify and distinguish between the many potential causes of dizziness including BPPV, labyrinthitis and/or neuritis, Meniere’s disease, post-concussion syndrome, migraine, central vertigo, or orthostatic hypotension. She will now be able to more effectively perform the appropriate canalith repositioning maneuver to resolve BPPV within 1-3 treatment sessions.
Julie is now accepting new patients at the Dewitt location of Onondaga Physical Therapy. For more information please call 315-635-5000 or request an appointment below:
