BPPV stands for Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo and is a condition where you may have a sensation of spinning. This uncomfortable feeling of dizziness can be caused by an inner ear problem, or by changing your head’s position. Knowing the cause of BPPV is important in determining the type of treatment necessary. BPPV can be treated with Physical Therapy, Chiropractic care, or Acupuncture. Experienced therapists at Elite Spine & Sports Care of Totowa offer testing to determine the cause of BPPV and therapy options for treatment. We welcome the opportunity to help you learn about BPPV and how it can be treated to relieve discomfort for our Passaic County patients.

 

Treating Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo

 

The condition known as BPPV can be caused by head and neck problems as well as by inner ear issues. The Dix-Hallpike test can tell whether the problem is coming from the ear canal. This test can also help determine the treatment form. Treatment could be Physical Therapy, Chiropractic Care or Acupuncture.  Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo is rarely serious, but can become so when it increases the possibility of falling.

Treatment through Chiropractic Care may involve manipulation techniques. At Elite Spine our Passaic County Chiropractors are experienced in these techniques and have found them to be successful in addressing Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo.

Our Physical Therapists can offer relief from dizziness caused by BPPV with exercise and alignment. The dizziness may affect a person when lying down, sitting up or when standing. Treating vertigo can bring tremendous relief to anyone suffering from this condition.

Acupuncture is another treatment option for BPPV. Working with a professional acupuncturist that has experience with treating BPPV is essential to relief. This form of treatment can stimulate the area surrounding the ear toward realignment and comfort.
