Clinical Trial Summary

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is a vestibular disorder that manifests itself as a result of dizziness caused by the otoconia in the inner ear coming out of their places and circulating freely in the semicircular canals or by attaching to the cupula and sensitizing the cupula to head movements against gravity. The aim of the study is to compare the effectiveness of pharmacological treatment initiated by the physician and vestibular rehabilitation initiated by physiotherapist in patients with acute benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). Thirty patients, aged 18-50 years, who applied to the Bağcılar Safa Hospital, were included in the study. The patients were divided into two groups, 15 pharmacological control group and 15 vestibular rehabilitation group. 8 patients in the pharmacological control group were given the drug containing betahistine by the physician, and 7 patients received the drug containing additional dimenhydrinate to the betahistine. In the rehabilitation group, exercises including head and eye movements and maneuvering were performed according to the direction of the canal after the exercise, and the patients were given a home exercise program. Treatment continued for 4 weeks. Visual Analogue Scale (VAS), dynamic visual acuity test, romberg, semitandem, tandem posture tests with a stopwatch, standing test on one leg with eyes open and closed, and unterberger tests were applied to patients before and after treatment.
