How Is a Balance Disorder Treated?
The first thing a doctor will do to treat a balance disorder is determine if the patient’s dizziness is caused by a medical condition or medication. If it is, the doctor will treat the condition or suggest a different medication for the patient.
The treatment for the different types of balance disorders described previously will depend on the specific balance disorder. Some treatment options include medication, vestibular rehabilitation therapy, head; body; and eye exercises, and modifications to home fixtures to make them safer (for example, handrails in the home).
