Dizziness can be caused by a wide range of pathologies in the vestibular, visual, and proprioceptive systems. Dizziness by a functional loss of any one of these systems can be compensated for. However, partial or complete loss of two or more of these systems may not be compensated completely, and a patient may end up experiencing chronic dizziness/disequilibrium. Management of dizziness in general is not easy because there are so many contributing mechanisms. Dizzy patients should be evaluated clinically for accurate diagnosis, and the pathology in vestibular system would be treated medically or surgically as indicated. However, many patients would require vestibular rehabilitation exercises after the initial treatment for a better recovery from the incompletely compensated status. Various general and customized vestibular exercises that can be utilized in various vestibular diseases, are introduced along with their effectiveness.
