When possible, treatment should be directed at the underlying cause of vertigo. The particle repositioning maneuver is a simple curative bedside treatment for benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. Symptomatic therapy using antivertiginous drugs can be used with specific treatments or when no specific treatment is available. Surgery has a limited role in the treatment of vertigo and should be considered only when the diagnosis and pathophysiology are clear. Vestibular rehabilitation helps the patient compensate for a fixed vestibular deficit.
