In this study it was aimed to investigate the effects of home treatment program based standard activity on dizziness, balance and daily life activity in patients with dizziness complaint originated from chronic unilateral peripheral vestibular disorder and compare to effects of exercise-based home rehabilitation program.

Full description

The aim of this study was to assess the effects of an activity training programme on dizziness, imbalance, and level of independence in daily living activities in patients with chronic dizziness. 75 patients between 18-65 years of age who diagnosed chronic peripheral vestibular disorders and individuals with vestibular rehabilitation indications were included in our study. Patients were randomly divided into 3 groups consist of 25 patients as an activity group, exercise group, and control group. Education was given to each group. İn addition, the activity group was performed a training activities program, the exercise group was performed in the Cawthorne-Cooksey exercises program. Therapy programs were prescribed once daily at home for 4 weeks. After demographic information was obtained from all patients, assessments were performed at the beginning and at the end of the treatment program (4 weeks). Dizziness severity was assessed by the Visual Analog Scale (VAS), activities of daily livings were assessed by Vestibular Disorders Activity Questionnaire (VADL) and balance was assessed by Sensory Organization Testing (SOT).
