THE BEST-SELLING BOOK ON THE TOPIC! 

The third edition of Balance Function Assessment and Management, the leading textbook on the subject, 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.

New to the Third Edition

  • Reorganized with the expertise of four additional Editors: Kamran Barin, PhD, Robert F. Burkard, PhD, Kristen Janky, AuD, PhD, and Devin L. McCaslin, PhD
  • Three new chapters:
    • An Historical Perspective of the Perception of Vertigo, Dizziness, and Vestibular Medicine (Zalewski)
    • Vestibular Balance Therapy for Children (Christy)
    • Challenging Cases (Shepard)
  • All existing chapters have been revised and updated
  • An effort has been made to make the text more concise
  • Three new helpful appendices:
    • Appendix I covers the pathophysiology behind dizziness. The authors provide a list of disorders that cause symptoms of dizziness and balance disorders going from common peripheral disorders to rare central disorders. For each of the disorders a vignette is included that provides the symptoms, test findings, treatments, prognosis, and site-of-lesion.
    • Appendix II deals with the development of codes that are used for billing services. The discussion includes the movement in the United States for changing to Alternative Payment Models; reimbursement based on quality of care and away from fee-for-service billing.
    • Appendix III provides an overview of interprofessional education (IPE) and interprofessional practice (IPP) and how the hope is that IPE will lead to IPP.

As with prior editions, the text comes with access to a PluralPlus companion website that contains videos of eye movements associated with the cases described in the text and PowerPoint lecture slides for instructors.

Reviews of the Previous Edition

"...well written textbook and necessary resource covering all aspects of balance function and remediation. ...This text is well researched, with comprehensive and appropriate references for further review. In addition, the videos supplied on the companion website are effective supplemental learning tools for the clinical concepts discussed throughout the text. Moreover, nearly all chapters provide clinical cases or clinical examples to reinforce clinical decisions for best care. Overall, this is an excellent compilation of the most state-of-the art assessment and management topics and techniques that I will most certainly include for my graduate students and for my own reference in clinical practice."
Julie Honaker, PhD, Department of Special Education and Communication Disorders, University of Nebraska - Lincoln, in the International Journal of Audiology (2015)

"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, Balance and Vestibular Program, Department of Otolaryngology & Communication Enhancement, Boston Children's Hospital at Waltham, in the International Journal of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology (2016)
