Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is the most well-known form of dizziness, however there are multiple other conditions that can cause symptoms of dizziness, motion sensitivity imbalance, and falls. This session will introduce multiple vestibular functional assessments that can be used to assess each area of the vestibular rehabilitation program. Findings from these assessments will direct the clinician’s clinical decision-making with regard to appropriate treatment techniques to minimize or eliminate dizziness, decrease risk of falls, and restore function.
