Once you have a diagnosis of PPPD (persistent postural-perceptual dizziness), the first step in treatment is helping you understand what causes PPPD and how the brain is responding to normal signals as if you were in danger. Knowing what is going on will help you feel more in control and able to take part in treatment. Treatment for PPPD usually involves "retraining" your brain through a combination of vestibular rehabilitation, strategies to address anxiety, such as and cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and medication. You may also benefit from relaxation for your neck and shoulders. Ideally, you will have a treatment team of health care professionals who work together to help you. Remember that both vestibular rehabilitation and CBT take practice and effort. Your therapists will teach you the skills you need, but you are the one who puts them to use.
