Balance Function Assessment and Management, now in its second edition, continues to comprehensively address the assessment and treatment of balance system impairments through contributions from top experts in the areas of dizziness and vertigo. Designed for use in graduate audiology programs and by practicing audiologists, this is also a valuable text for those in the fields of physical therapy, otolaryngology, and neurology.

Assessment chapters focus on ocular motility testing, positional/positioning testing, caloric testing, rotational testing, computerized dynamic posturography, and vestibular evoked potentials. Treatment chapters examine nonmedical, medical, and surgical treatments of dizziness and vertigo, vestibular rehabilitation, and assessment of and intervention for risk of falls. Additionally, this text provides background information on the vestibular and ocular motor systems with corresponding sample cases.

New topics addressed in this edition include:

  • Development of the vestibular system
  • Central compensation following peripheral vestibular system impairment
  • Video head impulse test (vHIT)
  • Biomechanics and physiology of balance
  • Electrocochleography (ECochG)
  • Pediatric vestibular system and balance assessment
  • Effects of age on the vestibular and balance systems


  • An added bonus to the second edition is the companion website that offers additional reference materials, such as video clips, associated with the text.

Activity over the last 27 years has concentrated on the clinical assessment and rehabilitation of balance disorder patients and clinical research endeavors related to both assessment and rehabilitation.

    Review:

    "Up to date and useful as a reference for students as well as practicing clinicians in audiology, otology, physical therapy, neurology."
    --Linda Jacobs-Condit, AuD, CCC-A (George Washington University), Doody's Review Service, (2009)(Review of the First Edition)

    "Despite the number of contributors, the text flows seamlessly as uniformity has been maintained in presentation style and language. ... A must-have for those who truly want to explore and understand the clinical realm of the vestibular system. ... This text offers something for everyone from the novice to the expert nearing retirement."
    --John E. King (Medical University of South Carolina), Ear & Hearing, (2008)(Review of the First Edition)

    "All in all, this is an excellent book, to be used as a reference for ENT surgeons, trainees, and audiological physicians." --A. Banerjee (Middlesbrough, UK), The Journal of Laryngology & Otology,(2008) (Review of the First Edition)

    "...There are welcome, entirely new chapters on the development of the vestibular system balance and vestibular compensation. A revised assessment section includes a new chapter on electrocochleography as well as an excellent introduction and summary of paediatric vestibular testing. Chapters on computerised dynamic posturography have been supplemented with additional information on biomechanics and the physiology of balance. Gone is active rotation testing and in its place a comprehensive chapter on video head impulse testing which includes a useful trouble-shooting section. Other new content includes a chapter on the topographical localisation of vestibular impairment with some excellent clear diagrams, providing a useful link back to the first chapter on anatomy and physiology. The chapter on psychiatric dizziness has been revised and renamed, detailing the contribution and inter-relationship of behavioural and psychological factors in dizziness. In a world where we are seeing increasing numbers of elderly people with dizziness (often associated with other co-morbidities) it was pleasing to see that the section on rehabilitation in this population extended to two chapters to include a focus on the aging vestibular system..." --Fiona Barker, ENT & Audiology News, Clinical Scientist, Windsor Audiology Centre, Princess Margaret Hospital, Windsor, Berks, UK (2016)

    ''To summarize, this book provides a comprehensive review of topics in assessment of balance and vestibular function, as well as management options of vertigo and imbalance. The contents are up to date and it can be a resourceful text for audiologists, otolaryngologists, neurologists and other clinicians who may have an interest in this field.'' --Guangwei Zhou, in International Journal of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology(April 2016)
