We use the latest published and peer-reviewed recovery protocols to maximize your result.
Vestibular Disorders and Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo is a common inner-ear problem affecting the vestibular system, a system used to maintain balance. BPPV will cause short periods of dizziness when your head is moved in certain positions, relative to gravity.
Benign means that this disorder is not life-threatening, and generally, the disorder is not progressive.
Paroxysmal means that vertigo (spinning sensation) occurs suddenly.
Positional means that the vertigo is triggered by changes in head position, most commonly when lying down, turning over in bed, or looking up. This dizzy or spinning sensation is called vertigo.
Fortunately, most people recover from BPPV with a simple but very specific head and neck maneuver performed by a physical therapist. We can often resolve these symptoms in 1-3 visits!
