Functional Neurology Management of Concussion: Level 2, Chapter 4a

February 2 - February 4


This chapter of the Carrick Institute's second level of Functional Neurology Management of Concussion (FN-MOC), focuses on "Implications of Peripheral and Central Vestibular Dysfunction in Concussion"

This chapter offers an in-depth analysis of the vestibular system, covering its structure and function from the outer components to the inner processing zones. It underscores the importance of grasping typical vestibular disorders and diseases, especially those frequently associated with or caused by concussions. The section meticulously discusses several vestibular reflexes, outlining their standard operations and the symptoms of their malfunctions. Additionally, it underlines the essential function of diagnostic methods in identifying vestibular impairments, including practices such as Computerized Posturography, Rotary Chair Tests, Video Head Impulse Tests, Videonystagmography (VNG), and Caloric Irrigation. Moreover, the section delves into the complex connection between the vestibular system and various concussion types, along with related conditions, highlighting the sophisticated interaction that influences patient care.

This course will cover:

  • The anatomy of the vestibular system from peripheral to central
  • Assessments of vestibular function and their interpretation
  • The integration between vestibular function, skeletal muscles, eye muscles, and spatial processing.
  • Common vestibular syndromes (peripheral and central) deficits in concussion
  • Performing diagnostic testing of vestibular function
  • Utilizing and interpreting the output of equipment for vestibular testing
