What is it?
If Symptoms Persist
If symptoms persist, further testing may be done to determine nerve damage and to rule out any other pathology that may be causing the present symptoms. Patients suffering from chronic symptoms (after a few weeks) should be evaluated by a certified specialist in the field of vestibular and balance rehabilitation for an assessment of their dizziness, vertigo, imbalance, and fall risk. After determining the extent of a patient’s dizziness and balance scores, patients undergo a comprehensive vestibular and balance rehabilitation program tailored to meet their individual needs. Vestibular and balance rehabilitation involves specific exercises to strengthen the relationship of the involved inner ear and the brain’s ability to process the information it receives from the vestibular system.
