Dizziness is a common complaint across the lifespan, unfortunately, it is poorly understood and treated. In this online course, we will use a case study approach (with a concussion patient) to review a vital tool in assessing dizziness, the patient's history.

Patients have the information we need to know to help them. We just need to know specifically what to ask.

By the end of the course, each participant should be able to take a history that will guide them as to the cause of the dizziness whether it be a specific disorder coming from the inner ear, brain or some other condition.

This 60-minute online course is appropriate for all physiotherapists (physical therapists) and any rehabilitation professional who works with people who suffer from dizziness or who have experienced a concussion or other head trauma.

The instructors
Kregg Ochitwa
BScPT, CWCE, CredMDT

Kregg has been a registered physical therapist since 1995. Over the years his caseload has shifted from solely orthopedic to a mix of orthopedic and vestibular. With this background he has also established a reputation for treating concussion, having treated athletes in the NFL, CFL, college ranks, WHL, high school athletes, and the weekend warrior.

In 2008, he completed all of the requirements of the Vestibular Rehabilitation: a competency based course at Emory University, Atlanta Georgia. Since then he has continued to take ongoing courses throughout North America in regards to orthopedics, traumatic brain injury, and vestibular therapy. He has also been asked to teach weekend courses and present at various conferences throughout North America and Europe.

In 2010, Kregg opened the North 49 Balance & Dizziness Centre in his hometown of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The clinic has since grown from a staff of one to five physical therapists, where well over half of the caseload consists of patients with dizziness and/or balance issues.
