Abstract:

Neuroplasticity, vital for learning and adaptation, holds increasing significance in vestibular rehabilitation, aiming to restore balance post vestibular disruptions. This narrative review probes the intricate connection between neuroplasticity and rehabilitation, spotlighting neural adaptations' contribution, influencing factors, mechanisms, and clinical implications. Vestibular disorders like neuritis and BPPV instigate neuroplastic changes in the CNS. Patient age, dysfunction severity, and intervention timing shape reorganization potential. Gaze stability training and balance exercises leverage neuroplasticity for optimal outcomes. Educating both clinicians and patients amplifies intervention success. This review underscores neuroplasticity's key role, unveiling its interplay with recovery, accentuating influencing factors and effective mechanisms. With evolving insights, rehabilitation strategies stand to revolutionize, fostering equilibrium and enriching lives amid vestibular adversities.
