  • The Activities-specific Balance Confidence Scale [ Time Frame: Change between baseline and three months after baseline ]
    Questionnaire. The ABC-scale has proven to be able to identify the influence that vestibular dysfunction can have on daily activities.
  • EuroQol 5D [ Time Frame: Change between baseline and three months after baseline ]
    Questionnaire. EQ5D consists of a descriptive system comprising five dimensions: mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/discomfort and anxiety/depression. Each dimension has three levels: no problems, some problems, severe problems. The patient indicates his/her state by marking the most appropriate statement. This result in a 1-digit number and the digits for the five dimensions can be combined in a five-digit number, generating 243 possible combinations of response.The EQ5D also consist of the EQ VAS where the patients' record self-rated health on a vertical, visual analogue scale where the individual points can be used as a quantitative measure with zero as worst rated health and 100 as best rated health

Vestibular Rehabilitation for Strokepatients With Dizziness
Vestibular Rehabilitation for Strokepatients With Dizziness - a Randomized Controlled Trial.

Recently, the investigators has shown that dizziness is common among patients with first time stroke and that it affects self perceived health. There are indications that vestibular rehabilitation can have effect of neurological causes of dizziness and vertigo and it therefore seems important to find out if vestibular rehabilitation can affect dizziness among patients with stroke.

The aim of this study is to find out if vestibular rehabilitation can have any effect on function, balance and self-rated health among patients with first time stroke.
