CPTA and Patient Management with Vestibular Hypofunction

Arroyo Physical Therapy attended the annual CPTA (California Physical Therapy Association) conference in Long Beach and took a course on patient management with Vestibular Hypofunction. The speaker Susan Herman is a leading expert in vestibular treatment and has done a lot of research and has written a text book on the diagnosis, medical/surgical management, and physical therapy management of vestibular disorders.

Just another way Arroyo Physical Therapy is staying on top of the current information and treatment for clinical assessment and decision making for balance and vestibular rehabilitation and treatment.
