The Psychological impact of vestibular dysfunction on patients: Patients with dizziness and vertigo usually experience psychological, physical, and social functioning limitations that may affect their daily activities.
Many of them become physically inactive and withdraw from their social activities. It has been observed that many patients with vestibular dysfunctions also have depression/anxiety.
The coexistence of these problems can lead to a vicious circle and harm their therapeutic outcome and quality of life. The quality of life can be greatly affected due to vestibular dizziness.
Patients with dizziness also are affected by functional disability, reduced health levels, and falling. Early diagnosis and management of patients with vertigo and dizziness symptoms are essential for reducing disability and the negative effects of dizziness on patients. Being aware of the negative effects of different vestibular disorders on patients’ quality of life makes up an important part of vestibular rehabilitation programs.
