Recently I have announced fellowship by the American College of Functional Neurology.  Well, once again I am proud to report that I have recently been advised that I have been accepted as a Fellow of the American Board of Vestibular Rehabilitation as well. The American Board of Vestibular Rehabilitation, (ABVR), certifies qualified physicians at the fellowship level in the specialty are of vestibular rehabilitation.  Vestibular rehabilitation is that area of neurology and otology that concerns itself with the diagnosis and management of balance disorders, including vertigo, dizziness and dysequilibrium.  The ACFN maintains standards for competent practice in the health care specialties for which they offer fellowship. The College and board also conducts recertification designed to enhance the continued competence of accepted Fellows.  Functional neurologists use and utilize current concepts of brain function to formulate brain based neurologic rehabilitation programs to treat patients with neurologic disorders.  Treating patients with dystonia, ADD/ADHD, headaches and traumatic brain injuries, as well as pain, pain syndromes and other types of disorders, our office is no exception.  And with further sub-specialization in vestibular rehabilitation, we would typically see patients with disorders such as vertigo, dizziness and dysequilibrium/imbalance and fall risk, disorders with which we have met with a myriad of success.  More information about the FAVBR or FACFN certifications is available at www.acfnsite.org.
