Course Webinar: Strategies for Decreasing Visual Vertigo in Patients with Visual Motion Sensitivity, Post-Concussion Syndrome, PPPD, and More!

Course description: Visual vertigo occurs when a patient feels off-balance, nauseous, or dizzy when viewing a visually busy environment. This can occur when a patient is driving or riding transportation, viewing a grocery store aisle, or even looking at a striped shirt worn by a co-worker. The causes of visual vertigo can vary, so in this course, we will explore proposed causes of visual vertigo. This course is designed to assist clinicians to better understand how to effectively treat patients with visual vertigo, as well as provide strategies for decreasing dizziness, nausea, and off-balance feelings when viewing visually busy environments. Coming away from this course, clinicians will have an increased set of treatment ideas and tools for patients with visual vertigo, empowering clinicians on how to best care for these often complicated vestibular patients.

Presented by Helena Esmonde, PT, DPT, NCS

Helena specializes in treating patients with neurologic, balance, and vestibular conditions. She received her psychology undergraduate degree at Northwestern University and graduated Cum Laude from Marquette University’s Doctoral Physical Therapy program in 2005. Helena passed her Vestibular Competency exam at Emory University in 2015, certified to treat Cervicogenic Dizziness in 2016. In 2017, she co-founded Vestibular First, a company which makes affordable infrared video goggles and educational tools. In 2018, Helena completed the clinical practice requirements and examination to attain the certification as a Neurologic Clinical Specialist (NCS). Dedicated to student education, she has served as a teaching assistant at Temple, Jefferson, Neumann, and the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, and holds an advanced clinical instructor certification. Helena has also presented at organizational and area Vestibular Special Interest Groups, Balance Center rounds at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, and the Penn Medicine Mind Your Brain Conference. She recently recorded an on-demand 1-day BPPV course for Carrick Institute and co-presented at the 2021 APTA Combined Sections Meeting regarding dizziness triage in the home health environment. In short, Helena loves teaching and supporting all things vestibular!
