Vestibular dysfunctions are the disturbances in the balance system of the body. These disorders are acutely present in the body. These disorders are treated with rehabilitation therapy. This is known as vestibular rehabilitation. The main aim of the white paper is to find how Virtual reality can be used in this rehabilitation therapy. Medical science is slowly adapting Virtual reality for training as well as medical purposes. Since virtual reality is regarded as the future, it is predicted that it will be used across various fields serving different purposes. It is very interesting to look at the future of virtual reality being used in mainstream medicine (Figure 1).
