Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo | Treatment


How is BPPV treated?

Your doctor can show you some easy head movements to help move the particles out of the inner ear canals and into areas where they will not cause episodes of vertigo. Doing these movements can stop the symptoms and may keep the dizziness from coming back. Your doctor may also give you medicine to treat the nausea and dizziness. In more severe cases, surgery may be necessary to fix the problem.
