Rotational maneuver is a vestibular rehabilitation method, performed in a supervised manner. Using a rotating chair, subjects are rotated towards the opposite direction of dominant side in order to inhibit this side and simultaneously, stimulate the subordinate side. We propose that the rehabilitative effect is the result of a decrease in the vestibular imbalance, mainly due to a decrease in the response of the dominant vestibular side. Previously, we have shown the short-term effects of this maneuver on patients with recent onset vestibular imbalance. In the present study, we investigated the long-term effects of the rotational maneuver in patients with a history of peripheral vestibular vertigo for at least one year, originally confirmed by clinical tests. Our results show a significant improvement which lasted for >4 weeks after the end of rehabilitation (i.e., the last time tested). Moreover, there seems to be a relationship between the decrease in DP values and a decrease in subjective symptoms. We propose that this maneuver can be used as an effective method for both short- and long-term rehabilitation.

Vertiginous symptoms are one of the most common symptoms in the world, therefore investing in new ways and therapies to avoid the sense of insecurity during the vertigo episodes is of great interest. ...
First, determine whether the sensation the patient is experiencing is dizziness or true vertigo. Then eliminate ominous causes from the array of benign ones.
An illusion of movement, either of the external world revolving around the individual or of the individual revolving in space. Vertigo may be associated with disorders of the inner ear (EAR, INNER); VESTIBULAR NERVE; BRAINSTEM; or CEREBRAL CORTEX. Lesions in the TEMPORAL LOBE and PARIETAL LOBE may be associated with FOCAL SEIZURES that may feature vertigo as an ictal manifestation. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp300-1)

Idiopathic recurrent VERTIGO associated with POSITIONAL NYSTAGMUS. It is associated with a vestibular loss without other neurological or auditory signs. Unlike in LABYRINTHITIS and VESTIBULAR NEURONITIS, inflammation in the ear is not observed.
