What is Benign Positional Paroxysmal Vertigo (BPPV)?

BPPV is a common inner ear disorder characterized by brief episodes of dizziness or vertigo triggered by changes in head position, such as turning over in bed, tilting the head back, or looking up. BPPV occurs when tiny calcium carbonate crystals become dislodged from their usual position in the inner ear. This displacement can cause abnormal fluid movement in the inner ear, leading to brief episodes of vertigo.



BPPV is typically diagnosed through a series of positional tests and can often be effectively treated with specific head maneuvers performed by a physiotherapist to reposition the displaced crystals.


Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vestibular rehabilitation is an approach for patients experiencing dizziness and balance problems. This could be a result from a disturbance in the vestibular system, the visual system and/or the proprioceptive system. An in-depth assessment is performed and the cause of symptoms is determined. From there, an individualized program of evidence-based treatment techniques is tailored to your unique needs and goals.
