Internet based vestibular rehabilitation with and without physiotherapy support for adults aged 50 and older with a chronic vestibular syndrome in general practice: three armed randomised controlled trial
Published on: January 13, 2021
Van Vugt et al performed a triple-arm randomized controlled trial wherein
patients with chronic vestibular disorders were distributed among three six-week therapy interventions; a virtual intervention, a standard in-person intervention, and a mixed intervention. The stand-alone virtual therapy regime was demanding; the program increased in intensity according to the patient’s progress. But over the course of the study, there were zero
adverse events attributable to the intervention. And moreover, patients who partook in the virtual intervention scored significantly lower than controls on measures of vertigo frequency, dizziness, and unsteadiness at the six-month time point.
