Abstract

In a prospective, non-randomized pilot study, two groups of patients with dizziness for more than one year due to posttraumatic otolith disorders had been investigated. They were treated by a one-day vestibular rehabilitation training with/without auditory feedback. It could be shown that auditory feedback training for a limited period of time can reduce significantly trunk sway compared to those patients who did vestibular exercises alone without auditory feedback. This audiofeedback-based therapy seems to be a promising tool in the vestibular rehabilitation and in treating patients with otolith disorders in particular. Long-term effects cannot yet be assessed with the present data of our series.
