Recent evidence from experiments in animals suggests a rationale for more effective pharmacologic and physical therapy in patients with vertigo. In particular, one must consider the possible effects of medications on the adaptive processes that naturally mediate recovery from vestibular lesions. The challenge now is for clinicians to devise medication and exercise regimens for patients with vestibular disturbances and critically (and quantitatively) evaluate their effects.
