Video of Epley to Treat BPPV (Posterior Canal)

This is the third in a series of videos our practice is producing on inner ear dizziness. This video demonstrates how the Epley maneuver is performed to treat posterior canal BPPV. Also demonstrated is what happens within the inner ear when the maneuver is performed correctly. The first video was on how the inner ear balance system works which can be watched here.

Of course, you can use this DizzyFix device to ensure you are performing the maneuver correctly.

Soon to come are two more videos specifically regarding treatment of superior and lateral canal BPPV.

There is an alternative maneuver to the Epley to treat posterior canal BPPV called the half-somersault. This maneuver can be watched here.

Do symptoms of dizziness/vertigo sometimes persist even after the otolith is out of the canal and into a better place? If yes, for how long? Days? Hours? -- Brian
