If there are signs of vestibular dysfunction, vestibular rehabilitation may help because the migraine has affected the functioning of the vestibular system. However, if there is more permanent damage or it is a chronic long-term condition that happens over years and years, vestibular rehabilitation might get people used to (habituated) to some of the symptoms. Vestibular therapists can also educate people on how to avoid possible triggers that could worsen their migraines. For example, avoiding processed foods, stress or certain modifiable factors.
