An interprofessional team from the university is carrying out a clinical research study on two intervention approaches for people with dizziness, according to a statement from the university.
Those who may be eligible to participate in the study have suffered from dizziness for more than three months and are between the ages of 18 and 79.
The purpose of the study is to determine if osteopathic manipulative treatment, referred to as OMT and/or vestibular rehabilitation therapy, or VRT, are helpful to patients suffering from dizziness, the statement said.
Study participants may receive either treatment, both treatments, or be part of a control group, the statement said.
Those seeking information or who would like find out if they qualify for the study should call research coordinator Michelle Yim by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling her at 909-469-8463.
