Scholarcy highlights

  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is characterized by short attacks of position related rotatory vertigo
  • The study brings support for the hypothesis that equilibrium plays an important role in WAD and idiopathic neck disorder and dizziness
  • Both the INDD and WAD patient groups responded and significantly to a balance treatment program focusing on amelioration of malfunction peripheral units of the equilibrium system
  • The p-value for pre-and post-treatment differences in each patient group are shown in brackets; *; **; *** express degrees of significance, i.e., *p<0.05; **p<0.01; ***p< 0.001. p indicates the p-value of the variance analysis of the two patient groups. p* indicates the p-value of the variance analysis of the patient- and control groups www.intechopen.com
  • The INDD group showed a small significant difference in the JPE-test compared to the WAD group
  • The p-value for pre-and post-treatment differences are shown in brackets; *; **; *** express degrees of significance, i.e. *p<0.05; **p<0.01; ***p< 0.001. p-value indicates the variance analysis of the two patient groups
  • This means that 74 % of the WAD patient group worked half-time or more, three months post-treatment
