If you are suffering from vertigo or dizziness one type of vertigo can be related to the movement of crystals in our inner ear. This is called Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo or BPPV. This type of dizziness feels like the room is spinning.
This video reviews the different tests to check for vertigo or BPPV. The most sensitive and currently best test is video oculography. A correct diagnosis of BPPV improves the success of treatment.
One way to find success in treatment is to know what not to do for your vertigo. Certain treatments say they work on treating vertigo but do not follow our understanding and knowledge of how our vestibular system works. You will be able to evaluate and treat a vertigo patient by the end of this post and know what NOT to do.
Most positional vertigo or BPPV problems are a posterior canal and doing the Epley maneuver is the first step in treatment. This post shows you how to know that you have positional vertigo, how to treat your own vertigo, and what you should avoid. Vertigo treatment should not make you sick. You should feel immediately better or it did not work or is not the primary cause of your dizziness.
