It's Not Counter-intuitive; it's Science

As you might imagine, we get a lot of comments from people who think that rotation is counter-intuitive to addressing a balance or dizziness problem. However, the opposite is actually true. VEDA (Vestibular Disorders Association) problems a helpful description of just what is happening when you engage in balance training exercises:

How do balance retraining exercises speed recovery?

"Recovering from dizziness is exactly the same as getting your sea legs. At first being at sea makes people unsteady and sick, but if you stay at sea then gradually the brain learns to cope with the new balance, signals from the eyes, body and balance organs, and the sickness disappears. In the same way, the brain can gradually overcome dizziness and imbalance due to a change in the way the balance system is working, following injury or illness. But your system can only learn to cope with the new balance signals if you practice the activities which cause dizziness. Balance retraining exercises give your balance system all the practice it needs, at a time and place where you will not be distracted or put at risk."
