Vestibular evaluation & testing is an important way for audiologists to expand their scope of clinical practice (and consequently, their revenues). However, few practitioners have both the clinical and business knowledge to establish a successful balance disorders clinic. This book provides the fundamental clinical information AuDs need for managing the dizzy patient along with essential tips for running a financially sound business. The first edition of this book was praised for its brief and understandable explanations of measuring, evaluating, and treating the vestibular system. This new edition follows the same format but with expanded sections on basic sciences and specific disorders, as well as a new section on falls prevention.

The limitations of vestibular rehabilitation therapy are the overall health and function of the nervous system, especially the brainstem, cerebellum, and visual and somatosensory centers. The ultimate goal of vestibular rehabilitation therapy is reduction of vertigo, dizziness, gaze instability, poor balance, and dangerous falls; in some cases this goal is achieved without reducing dysfunction.

This chapter discusses the vestibular function. The labyrinthine endorgans, closely related to the cochlear organ in the inner ear, transduce mechanical force to nerve action potentials by special adaptation of hair cells, a device adopted early in evolution to detect shearing forces by converting the bending of a cilium into polarization changes of the cell from which the cilium arises. 14/08/2020
