We recommend a thorough background in basic vestibular science as well as an understating of current objective diagnostic testing and diagnoses, understanding of common tests used by therapists to assess postural control, vertigo and ability to perform activities of daily living.

These guidelines may also be useful to professional organizations or therapists who provide continuing education in vestibular rehabilitation.

We recommend that therapists be familiar with the evidence supporting efficacy of available treatments as well as with limitations in the current research. (Less)
