Abstract

Optimal management of the dizzy patient depends on an accurate diagnosis and knowledge of medical, surgical, and rehabilitative options. Acute vertigo may represent labyrinthine dysfunction treated with medication or a more serious central nervous system process requiring prompt intervention to avoid long-term disability. Chronic vertigo, however, may require surgical or rehabilitative measures for lasting relief. This article outlines the rationale for treating both groups with a variety of therapeutic options.
