Clinical skills that will be taught will include assessment of sensory and motor systems that contribute to balance, cervicogenic screening, ocular motor examination, BPPV treatments, higher-level balance testing, treatment of balance dysfunction across the spectrum, according to a media release from North American Seminars.
