  49. 49. Therapeutic Modalities Options: 1. Symptomatic treatment 2. Treatment for Specific Conditions 3. Rehabilitative therapy 4. Prevention of aggravating factor SINGLE THERAPY or INTEGRATED THERAPY ?
  50. 50. Single Therapy •Etiologic or Specific treatment is paramount, but it does not offer the patient a significant improvement or vertigo symptoms resolution when used alone • Symptomatic drug therapy bring improvement in 75.1% of the patients with peripheral vestibulopathies and 39.8% of the patients with central vestibular disorders • Vestibular rehabilitation therapy were efficient in 51.1% of patient when used alone • Diet and feeding habit change improve vertigo in 42.2% patients with vestibulopathies Gananca et al. Brazilian Journal of Otorhinolaryngology 2007;73(1):12-8
  51. 51. INTEGRATED THERAPY Integrated Vestibular Therapy (IVT) A combination therapeutic modalities of Specific Treatment, Symptomatic Treatment, Vestibular Rehabilitaton Therapy, Diet Control and Life-style changes, brought about 96 % of vertigo improvement.
  52. 52. CONCLUSIONS Balance function depends on the integrity of vestibular, visual and somatosensory systems. Disorder of these system (s) leads to dizziness, which includes 4 types: Vestibular Vertigo, Nonvestibular Vertigo, Presyncope, and Disequilibrium. Treatment of vertigo includes etiologic, symptomatic, vestibular rehabilitative therapies, dietary and life habit control, and conditioning physical exercise. Integrated Vestibular Therapy (IVT) proved to bring better resolution of vertigo compared to single therapy
