POLO-ESPINOZA, Yuly et al. Vestibular rehabilitation of Meniere’s Disease in its chronic stage: A case report. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.3, pp.173-177. ISSN 1018-130X.

Meniere’s disease presents fluctuating attacks of dizziness, hearing loss and tinnitus. Once acute symptoms are controlled, vestibular rehabilitation is an effective treatment alternative. We present the case of a 46-year-old woman with Meniere’s disease in the chronic phase, who presented persistent postural vertigo and gait instability and who was treated with repositioning maneuvers, along with vestibular rehabilitation with adaptation, substitution and habituation exercises, vestibular balance and postural control. A favorable response is achieved, with the disappearance of positional vertigo, a significant decrease in instability and a great improvement in her quality of life. No conclusions can be drawn from a single case; however, a comprehensive approach is important in the treatment of patients with MS.
