Is it common to feel worse before you feel better when you start doing vestibular rehabilitation exercises?
Yes! Although you do not want to overdo it, you must make yourself dizzy in order to get better. Little by little, you will give your brain a chance to overcome the dizziness.
Though generalized sets of movements, such as the Cawthorne-Cooksey exercises, are helpful, they do not work as well as custom-tailored exercises. Based on your written vestibular test results, a vestibular therapist should be able to give you a personalized set of exercises to best address your particular symptoms.
