Canalith Repositioning Procedure for BPPV
Benign paroxysnnal positional vertigo (BPPV) is a mechanical problem in the inner ear. Calcium carbonate crystals (otoconia) become dislodged and migrate into one or more of the 3 fluid filled semicircular canals, where they are not supposed to be.
For patients with BPPV, the exercise methods described for VRT are not appropriate to resolve this type of vestibular disorder. Depending on the type of BPPV, different repositioning maneuvers can be performed to help resolve the spinning by guiding the crystals back to their normal location.
