Introduction adn objective:

Vestibular rehabilitation (VR) typically consists of the provision of a customized exercise program targeted toward the patient's specific needs. Patient education and psychological support are also key elements to optimal recovery. The techniques have evolved over the past few decades, and there is reliable research into the efficacy of vestibular exercises, wich we will try to present throughout this chapter.


Narrative review.


VR is a safe and effective treatment. Early intervention is advised for falls prevention and symptom management; however, symptomatic patients with chronic vestibular disorders may still demonstrate benefit. Persons with both central and peripheral vestibular disorders improve with VR. The frequency, optimal treatment duration, and total number of physical therapy visits for best results are unknown. Exercise programs must be regulated and dosed based on the response of the patient. No one-exercise program is effective for all persons with vestibular disorders.


Vestibular rehabilitation now is the standard of care for many types of vestibular pathology and we believe should be provided by physical and occupational therapists who have specialized training beyond the entry-level degree.
