Abstract

The current study was aimed to assess effect of vestibular stimulation on memory in postmenopausal Women with Osteoporosis. 30 post menopausal women with diagnosed Osteoporesis for past 5 years were recruited for the study after written informed consent by convenient sampling. Permission obtained from the Institutional Ethics Committee of GEMS Hospital, Srikakulam. After selection they were randomly grouped into control and intervention groups. Vestibular stimulation was achieved by swinging on a swing, according to their comfort. (Back to front direction) as previously described. Standardized spatial and verbal memory test was used to assess the spatial and verbal memory. Vestibular stimulation is found to be an effective method to improve cognition. Hence we recommend further detailed studies to support implementation of vestibular stimulation in clinical practice.
