There are several different types of vertigo, one of the most common is called Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo or BPPV. It is a condition where small crystalline particles develop inside the inner ear.
Once an assessment and determination of BPPV is made, generally the condition can be resolved within a couple of treatments. Typical BPPV treatment at HealthWorks consists of using a modified Epley maneuver where the person is taken through a series of head positions to flush the particles out of the ear canal. Acupuncture can be used after the maneuver to target the vestibular system.
