     When a peripheral vestibular disorder is of a fluctuating type, vestibular rehabilitation is considered less effective because the nervous system is constantly changing and therefore compensation is more difficult.  This question, however, is not completely resolved, therefore it is likely wise to try vestibular rehabilitation when the patient is having imbalance quite often.  In that case, hopefully habituation, and especially substitution become the more important mechanisms of improvement.
