Vestibular rehabilitation is not appropriate during the acute stage of a vestibular disorder. The best time to start is after the acute stage has passed or, for recurrent conditions such as Ménière’s disease, between bouts. Although it is not necessary to have a doctor’s referral to start vestibular rehabilitation, it is a good idea to see your doctor about dizziness problems and be cleared from any medical “red flags.” It is also important to get other medical tests done to rule out other reasons why you are feeling dizzy or light-headed. In addition to the vestibular system, problems with major body systems can cause dizziness.
