Danielle created Vestibular Today to provide evidenced-based vestibular resources for patients and professionals.
Abbie started a vestibular therapy company via telehealth to treat patients all over the country , increasing access to care, and providing treatment she believes patients deserve.
Danielle and Abbie talk through the prevalence of vestibular dysfunction and conditions commonly seen in the clinic or telehealth (BPPV, vestibular migraine, post-concussion, balance dysfunction).
They discuss research related to treatment for this population that extends beyond treating using the Epley maneuver. The guests emphasize that our inner ear is made up of 3 canals and each should be checked with testing.
