Edited by Linda M. Luxon, Rosalyn A. Davies
Part of the Exc Business And Economy (Whurr) series
Aimed at professionals wishing to set up a vestibular rehabilitation programme, this text examines the management of patients with chronic balance problems.
The introductory chapters explain how we balance, the pathological mechanism that may affect balance, common balance disorders and the diagnostic tests used for identifying these conditions.
Later chapters look at physiological mechanisms that enable recovery from peripheral vestibular disorders, the various modes of treatment of vertiginous syndromes, the principles underlying physical exercise regimes, and the practical application of rehabilitation techniques.
Psychological sequelae are frequently found in patients with vestibular disorders, and the diagnosis and management of these conditions are also discussed.
