Epley Manoeuvre

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo

Tania is qualified to perform the Epley manoeuvre. This is used to treat BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo). This is largely recognised by dizziness on movement of the head (creating movement in the ear). This condition is caused by free-floating particles entering the semicircular ear canal. The manoeuvre uses gravity and movements of the head to relocate the particles back to the utricle where they do not stimulate the cupula, thereby stopping the vertigo.

This treatment can be done within a standard treatment or as a stand-alone treatment.
