When patients feel that their heads are spinning upon repositioning their heads or getting up from a laying position, it is often due to a condition known as “benign paroxysmal positional vertigo” (BPPV). This common disorder of the inner ear’s vestibular (balance) system occurs when calcium crystals that normally reside in the three semi-circular canals of the inner ear become dislodged. Instead of moving as they normally would to signal the brain to balance the body properly, they send a false signal to the brain that causes “vertigo” (dizziness). fortunately, many chiropractors are versed in a treatment called the “Epley maneuver” which involves guiding the hand through a series of controlled movements that reposition the loose crystals and relieve dizziness.
