Abstract

The purpose of this article is to present an overview of vestibular rehabilitation, a comprehensive approach to assessing and treating symptoms associated with peripheral and central vestibular pathological conditions. The goal of this approach is to facilitate central nervous system compensation for disease within the vestibular system. The approach uses exercises to remediate position- and movement-provoked dizziness and sensory and motor deficits underlying postural dyscontrol.
