We devised a series of tasks as therapy for some types of vertigo. The task are as follows: 1) keeping the head in a position that elicits vertigo,2) head movements beginning in the sitting position,3) a short rest,4) body trunk movements,5) clockwise and counterclockwise body rotations while standing with eyes closed,7) walking forwards and backwards with eyes closed.<BR>We obtained favo r able results with this therapy in one of ten patients with Meniere's disease, all seven patients with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo and six of ten patients with vertebro-basilar artery insufficiency. Our home therapy is recommended for all patients with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo and selected patients with vertebrobasilar artery insufficiency.
