Vol31N2 – Vestibular Rehabilitation

Editorial

MAY-JUNE 2018: Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vestibular rehabilitation is a broad concept that involves training in regards to a vestibular dysfunction, but also postural training and eliminating other causes of vertigo, dizziness or general unsteadiness. It encompasses a wide clinical range of topics. A key concept based on the articles chosen for this edition is to appreciate the nervous adaptation mechanisms to a sensory loss or mismatch, which are vital in order to guide the treating therapist.

Accordingly, this edition is geared to help add to the knowledge of methods and concepts for vestibular rehabilitation (VR).
