Vestibular symptoms can occur immediately following traumatic brain injury (TBI) and can be some of the most problematic sequelae, which contribute to a prolonged recovery. Assessment of the vestibular system post TBI generally focuses on sensory organization or balance testing, while testing the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) continues to be largely overlooked. The literature is particularly sparse in incorporating VOR exercises into a rehabilitation program post injury, or articulating the importance of peripheral versus central vestibular involvement.
We are going to publish a video a week discussing the inclusion of visual, vestibular, and cervicogenic symptoms in TBI assessment and management. Join our mailing list and build on your knowledge of comprehensive diagnosis and management of concussion.
