If you are familiar with that feeling that the room is spinning, leaving you off kilter, you might be experiencing Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). And while this is a fairly common condition, it is often treated incorrectly, leaving you off-balanced, nauseous, and unhappy.

Let’s explore the causes of BPPV and discuss our treatment options to ensure you get the necessary dizziness relief.

Inner Ear Disorders Are The Culprit

BPPV occurs when the tiny calcium crystals in your inner ear start floating into places they shouldn’t be. This results in conflicting signals between your inner ear and eyes, leading to vertigo – that awful sensation that the world is spinning around you. 

Vertigo can be triggered by things like exercises or even the simplest movements, like tilting your head.

The Epley Maneuver: A Treatment That Works

A specific treatment available to solve BPPV is known as the Epley or BPPV Maneuver. While some people think that can be done as one of the home remedies for vertigo, it is, in reality, a specialised skill that must be learned to be applied safely.

In essence, it involves precise head and body movements that guide those disorderly ear crystals back to where they belong, giving dizziness relief in just a few minutes.
