[en] Positional vertigo can be successfully treated by exercises (Vestibular Habituation Training, VHT) in elderly patients as well as in younger ones. Provided the patients have been correctly selected, this type of treatment is the only way for an adequate treatment of such a type of vertigo. Application of VHT has to be recommended also in elderly people, as the results obtained are as favourable as those in younger people. Only a slower evolution is observed, which can be correlated with a more restricted activity pattern in the elderly.
