Vestibular rehabilitation (VR) is valuable tool to manage balance problem in various kinds of diseases. Over the last decades, numerous studies on the effect of VR have been reported. Recently, systematic analysis integrating the individual studies have been tried and the results suggest that VR is safe and effective management for the acute/chronic and unilateral/bilateral peripheral vestibular dysfunction, and also for the elderly people. VR relieves dizziness and improves gaze stability, postural stability, parameters of gait, and activities of daily living. Currently released "Clinical practice guideline of VR on peripheral vestibular dysfunction" support and assist the use of VR in clinical field. More research is needed to develop uniform evaluation tool to measure the symptomatic and functional status of the patients and individualized efficient rehabilitation programs. It is expected that device for VR incorporating new technologies such as virtual reality will be developed in near future.
