Abstract

ABSTRACT

Current standards of practice in the management of patients with vestibular hypofunction include the use of specific vestibular exercises. Numerous randomized clinical trials have demonstrated the effectiveness of these exercises in reducing symptoms, improving postural and gaze stability, and in enhancing the patient's quality of life. However, as with all treatments, vestibular rehabilitation is beneficial only when appropriately used. This chapter will identify key factors to be considered in order to obtain optimal rehabilitation outcomes in these patients.
