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.
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.
Testing has shown you have a horizontal canal problem of the inner ear. Treatment with liberating techniques prior to rolling and what you need to know following a maneuver.
This post helps you address positional vertigo of the inner ear treating the posterior canal with an Epley maneuver. What you should do after the Epley maneuver.
How do you know if your vertigo treatment is helping? Your vertigo gets better fast! If your dizziness responds slowly to vertigo treatments then it is either not helping and the side or canal has not been identified. OR your symptoms are coming from a vision and/or neck problem.
