Abstract: Introduction: Dizziness and tinnitus are common symptoms on clinical practice that can occur simultaneous or independently. Both can have multiple or unknown etiology, and can be worsen by emotional factors and limit day-by-day activities. Aim: evaluate the results of vestibular rehabilitation (VR) focusing on tinnitus recovery. Study design: Longitudinal cohorte. Method: after the clinical observation of the non-intentional tinnitus recovery with the VR we studied the patients' files with dizziness and tinnitus that underwent the therapy. Results: After VR 100% of the subjects recovered from dizziness, 58% had tinnitus reduction and 75% had reduction on hypersensitivity to sound. The comparison of the difference between post and pre treatment values of the analog visual scale (0 a 5) of each patient showed the following: 2,42 for dizziness 1,17 for tinnitus and 1,00 for hypersensitivity to sound. Conclusion: The VR may have a positive interference on tinnitus.
