Active Comparator: Group A (r TMS group)
Twenty randomly assigned patients with unilateral peripheral vestibular disorders will undergo 10 Hz rTMS to the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex of their dominant hemisphere; in addition to designed vestibular rehabilitation exercises.
Device: repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation
high frequency (10 HZ) rTMS pulses are applied to the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex of the dominant hemisphere.
Active Comparator: Group B (Galvanic stimulation)
Twenty randomly assigned patients with unilateral peripheral vestibular disorders will undergo galvanic vestibular stimulation; in addition to designed vestibular rehabilitation exercises.
Device: Galvanic stimulation
galvanic stimulation of the vestibular apparatus
No Intervention: Control (Group C)
Twenty randomly assigned patients with unilateral peripheral vestibular disorders will undergo designed vestibular rehabilitation exercises.
- Vestibular canal weakness [ Time Frame: 1 mounth ]Videonystagmography- Scores ranging zero min score and 100 max score
- Dizziness handicapped inventory [ Time Frame: 1 month ]identify difficulties that you may be experiencing because of your dizziness- 25 items with max score 100 and min score zero
- Postural stability [ Time Frame: 1 month ]Computerized dynamic Posturography- Scores ranging zero min score and 100 max score
- Balance [ Time Frame: 1 month ]Berg balance scale - 14 items each item scored from zero (min score)-4 (Max score) with total min score zero and max score 56
- Vestibular disorders activities of daily living [ Time Frame: 1 month ]The Vestibular Disorders Activities of Daily Living (VADL) scale assesses the impact of vestibular impairment on everyday activities. The 28 items are grouped into three dimensions: functional (self-care and intimate activities), ambulation (walking and stair climbing), and instrumental (home management and leisure activities).Each item is rated with zero (min score) to 10 (max score)
