Vestibular Physical Therapy CPG [DRAFT]
The Neurology Section of the American Physical Therapy Association supports the development of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines (CPG) to assist physical therapists with the treatment of persons with peripheral vestibular hypofunction in order to optimize rehabilitation outcomes. The purpose of this CPG for peripheral vestibular hypofunction, which can be accessed by clicking the icon below, is to describe the evidence supporting vestibular physical therapy including interventions and discharge planning supported by current best evidence. A draft of the Vestibular Physical Therapy CPG is now available for public comment through May 20, 2015. We invite you to critically read the draft and provide input and comments. Please note the manuscript is not to be cited or published anywhere at this time. Please follow the following link to provide your feedback on the CPG: http://goo.gl/iiMrr9

Aims and Scope
Journal of Vestibular Research is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes experimental and observational studies, review papers, and theoretical papers based on current knowledge of the vestibular system. Subjects of the studies can include experimental animals, normal humans, and humans with vestibular or other related disorders. Study topics can include the following:

  • Neurophysiology of balance, including the vestibular, ocular motor, autonomic, and postural control systems
  • Anatomy of the vestibular system, including vestibulo-ocular, vestibulo-spinal, and vestibulo-autonomic pathways
  • Neurochemistry and neuropharmacology of balance, both at the systems and single neuron level
  • Vestibular-related human performance in various environments
  • Psychophysics of spatial orientation
  • Space and motion sickness
  • Balance disorders
  • Vestibular Rehabilitation

Editorial Policy
Manuscripts are submitted to the Editorial Office. Manuscripts are sent to reviewers identifed by the Editorial Board who make recommendations for acceptability of the manuscript for publication. Decisions on the acceptability of the manuscripts or the need for revisions will be made by the Editor-in-Chief and Associate Editor and communicated to the corresponding author.
