New Sign Managing Symptoms, Diagnosis & Treatment, and Cognitive/Psychological Impacts is a videorecording available as a VHS or DVD from the Vestibular Disorders Association (VEDA). The video or DVD is divided into the 3 parts represented in its title. This film covers a number of topics including the symptoms of vestibular disorders, how the balance system works, how these disorders affect a person's life, diagnosis and methods of treatment including diet and physical therapy, how to cope with a vestibular disorder, and the psychological aspects of having a vestibular disorder. Each of these topics is covered in detail by physicians and other medical specialists. Several sufferers of vestibular disorders describe their experiences throughout the film. Anyone with a vestibular disorder will recognize experiences they have had such as difficulty with fluorescent lighting or problems with memory. The section on psychological impacts includes information to help other family members understand what the vestibular patient is going through and on how family members can help the vestibular patient. This is a very good video or DVD for vestibular patients and their families to view if they want to understand this condition better. The whole film takes a little less than 2 1/2 hours to view, but it can be viewed in segments. The video or DVD is available from VEDA for $24.95 plus $10 S&H ($2 discount for VEDA members). It can be ordered on-line or by mail with an on-line order form. For more information send e-mail to: info@vestibular.org
