The Use of Vestibular Reabilitation in Patients with Violations of the Vestibular Analyzer
Aim — to present the results of the observational program, the purpose of which was to reduce visual disorders associated with vestibular dysfunction, and restore balance, thereby reducing the risk of falls.
Materials and methods. 46 patients took part in the observational study. Determination of the optimal duration of vestibular rehabilitation in patients with unilateral non-progressive peripheral vestibular disorder.
Results. It was found that the optimal duration of treatment is no less than 2 months.
