PROGRAM DETAILS

There is a broad spectrum of patient classifications and ages in which balance/mobility testing and treatment plays an important role. Dizziness alone accounts for 11.3 million physician visits per year -- more visits than for back pain and headaches in patients over 65. And the National Institutes of Health estimates that 40 percent of the population over the age of 40 will experience a dizziness disorder during their lifetime. But other neurological disorders, musculoskeletal problems, orthopedic injuries, geriatric deconditioning, sports injuries, and pediatric disorders also cause significant difficulty with postural control. More than 450,000 head injuries occur each year, most often in young people aged 15 to 25. Even with a normal neurological exam, headaches, dizziness and/or memory problems will persist for up to 79 percent of these individuals several months post discharge. In athletics mild concussions require specific targeted sensory assessment to determine safe return to play. With nearly 390,000 hip and knee arthroplasties each year, many joint replacement patients, although pain free, demonstrate significant musculoskeletal impairment and functional limitation one year post surgery. Frequently, the ability to control the center of gravity (COG) over the base of support (BOS) is overlooked, due to focus on the patient's symptoms and functional limitations.

This seminar provides working definitions of balance and mobility, explores the sensory and motor components of upright posture, and addresses the role of balance assessment and treatment in the medical management process. Attendees learn basic clinical tools needed to screen for instability and to provide accurate triaging and/or treatment intervention. Participants also learn specific assessments to identify different impairments and functional limitations that may be exhibited by patients with similar pathologies (e.g., stroke, peripheral neuropathy, etc.). It is imperative to know both pathology and impairment information to develop effective treatment plans. As individuals become more aware of health issues affecting their activities and quality of life, many clinics are meeting that need by creating programs to address their needs and concerns. Therefore, balance and mobility program development is also outlined in this course.
