Balance problems, Dizziness, Vertigo:
You might have BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo), but
You can treat BPPV !
Benign paroxysmal positioning vertigo (BPPV) is a disorder caused by inner ear problems. The most common symptoms are repeated episodes of positional vertigo, or of a spinning sensation caused by changes in the position of the head.
Two vertigo treatments have been found effective for relieving symptoms of BPPV and overcoming dizziness: the Epley manoeuvre and the Semont manoeuvre. The Epley manoeuvre employs gravity to help a patient that needs vertigo treatment and involves moving the calcium particles that cause the condition. This form of vertigo treatment can be performed by trained health professionals or tought to patients to practice at home. In the Semont manoeuvre, patients themselves are able to achieve repositioning.
Although know as a vertigo treatment, the Epley manoeuvre does not destroy the actual presence of the particles (otoconia), instead it changes their position moving the particles from areas in the inner ear which cause vertigo, into areas where they do not cause these problems (their natural position) thus overcoming dizziness.
The DizzyFIX vertigo treatment device enables patients and health professionals to perform the Epley manouvre correctly.
