Thus, a complete medical history is obtained from the patient and a thorough clinical examination is carried out. The neurological functions, the cochlea and the cerebellar functions are assessed with specialized tests and examinations. Furthermore, if needed more diagnostic examinations may be required such as Computed tomography or Magnetic resonance imaging, in order to fully assess the patient.

Once the diagnosis is known, the patient is treated according to the cause and symptoms. Specialized repositioning tests may be performed in the case of benign positional vertigo. Furthermore, medication may be suggested in order to alleviate the symptoms for other types of vertigo. Finally, medical acupuncture may also be introduced into the treatment protocol to relieve symptoms and anxiety.

Often patients have already visited many hospitals and clinics without having found relief for their vertigo, so it is very important to treat such patients as a whole.
