Alan Sealy, BSc (Hons), Grad Dip Manipulative Physiotherapy, MCSP

Alan graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in 1996, where he also took his post graduate manipulative therapy qualification in 1999. With a background in manual therapy, Alan now works as a clinical Specialist in Vestibular Rehabilitation. Initially within the NHS, and as a partner in private practice in Sheffield, Alan developed an early interest in dizziness and balance disorders. Whilst on a lecture tour in Norway he was invited to establish ‘Balanseklinikken’, in Oslo. As the Director of Rehabilitation in Scandinavia’s busiest balance clinic, he estimates that he has treated and helped over 4,000 dizzy patients. This considerable experience is utilized in research and educational courses throughout Scandinavia and the UK.

Now based in Aberdeen, his time is split between his private practice, lecturing and research.

Course Description

This one day introductory course is suitable for practitioners with little or no previous experience of vestibular disorders wishing to learn how to successfully assess and treat the dizzy patient.

The course is practical in nature, evidence based and fully referenced.

A mix of theory lectures and practical sessions make up the 7 hours of contact time.

Participants completing this course will gain a greater understanding of the anatomy, biomechanics, assessment and evidence-based treatment of this interesting and complicated

subject.

On completion, the participants should be able to:

  • Understand what we mean by dizziness and vertigo and how we balance

  • Understand the scale of the problems associated with dizziness and recognise the need for vestibular assessment

  • Recognise the common peripheral vestibular disorders and differentiate these from central nervous system pathology

  • Incorporate a basic vestibular examination into their usual neuro-musculo-skeletal assessments.

  • Plan appropriate rehab programmes based upon individual assessment and clinical reasoning.

  • Diagnose and treat common variant positional vertigo (BPPV)

  • Utilize the most appropriate outcome measures
