Ear Rocks and Positional Vertigo Treatment from The Center for Balance and Dizziness

The Center for Balance and Dizziness Treats the Ear Rocks / BPPV for Dizziness and Imbalance

 

The Center for Balance and Dizziness Treats Positional Vertigo Causing Dizziness and Imbalance. BPPV is the most common cause of vertigo, which is a  sensation of spinning (ie. room spinning). Diagnosis of BPPV is clinical, involving a thorough history and physical examination, including specific positional tests such as the Dix-Hallpike test or the Roll test.

BPPV stands for:

B: Benign– not life threatening
P: Paroxysmal– sudden onset
P: Positional– changes of head and body position
V: Vertigo– the illusion of objects moving in the environment

BPPV is easily treated in our clinics, many time only 1-2 visits required.

The onset of BPPV can be sudden, and its episodes, while typically brief (usually lasting less than one minute), can be quite disorienting and distressing.

Diagnosis of BPPV is primarily clinical, involving a thorough history and physical examination, including specific positional tests such as the Dix-Hallpike test or the Roll test. These tests identify which ear is affected and which canal is involved.

Treatment for BPPV is highly effective and often involves maneuvers performed by our certified clinicians. The most common of these is the Epley Maneuver, designed to move the dislodged crystals out of the semicircular canal and back to their original location. In many cases, this can resolve the symptoms quickly.

The Center for Balance and Dizziness focuses on providing expert care for conditions like BPPV. Their approach includes comprehensive assessment, accurate diagnosis, and individualized treatment plans, incorporating both repositioning maneuvers and balance therapy when necessary. They are committed to helping patients regain their balance and reduce the impact of vertigo on their daily lives.
