Answer

Vestibular rehabilitation is a noninvasive therapy that can have success after lengthy periods. Unfortunately, it causes repeated stimulation of vertigo while the patient is performing the therapeutic maneuvers. Patients can be instructed in Cawthorne exercises that seem to help by dispersing particles.
