Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo or BPPV is an inner ear condition in which “crystals” called otoconia or otoliths float freely in the vestibular apparatus. It is a balance disorder similar to Meniere’s Disease or Labyrinthitis. This can disrupt the signal to your brain about head position resulting in dizziness symptoms. At Stroma, we can diagnose the condition with the dix-hallpike maneuver and treat it using a multitude of techniques including the Epley maneuver. Additionally, we use basic exercises to habituate our patients suffering from balance disorders in order to re-equilibrate their system.
