Chronic dizziness or Persistent postural-perceptual dizziness (PPPD or 3PD) is common “complication to healing” from definable inner disorders that can be both very disabling for the patient and challenging for clinicians. This course will review differential diagnosis, clinical presentation, and treatment techniques to better manage these complex patients. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
