Abstract

Vertigo is a symptom that is common to multiple disorders, from orthopedic and cardiovascular to neurological, affecting in many cases the patient's daily life activities. That is why, to help fight this symptom, this paper aims to prove the effectiveness of vestibular reeducation therapy. French Alain Semont introduced and developed the vestibular reeducation in 1968, his work being continued by Michel Toupet. Vestibular physical therapy took off around 49 years ago, while in Romania it is still quite a new method, much less explored by the Romanian experts. Currently there are few studies in this field, being a specialization that is almost non-existent among the Romanian therapists.
