Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is a common vestibular disorder that causes brief episodes of mild to intense dizziness associated with specific changes in the position of your head. This condition occurs when tiny calcium particles clump up in the canals of the inner ear, influencing the ear's ability to help maintain balance.

How BPPPV is Treated

At Village Physiotherapy, our approach to treating BPPV focuses on specific maneuvers designed to dislodge these particles from the semicircular canals of the inner ear, thereby alleviating the symptoms. The most common of these is the Epley maneuver, a simple yet effective technique performed by our trained physiotherapists. This procedure involves sequential movements of the head and body to guide the calcium deposits out of the canal into an area of the inner ear where they can no longer cause symptoms.  

Each treatment session is tailored to the individual's condition, ensuring precise and gentle handling to maximize effectiveness and minimize discomfort. Most patients experience significant improvement after just one or two treatments. Alongside these maneuvers, our physiotherapists may also provide exercises that can be performed at home to help manage symptoms and prevent recurrence, empowering patients to take control of their vertigo.  

Understanding and managing BPPV with professional guidance ensures not only swift recovery but also reduces the likelihood of its recurrence, helping you return to your daily activities without the fear of vertigo.
