Treating Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) with Physical Therapy: Video

May 8th, 2019

Did you know that you can treat benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) with physical therapy?

In this video, Lealah Fremuth, DPT, explains what BPPV is and how it can treated by a physical therapist. BPPV is a condition in which the otoconia (calcium carbonate crystals) in the inner ear become dislodged from the utricle (where they belong) and are floating in one of the three semi-circular canals, producing vertigo when you change your head position.

A physical therapist will work with a patient suffering from BPPV by coaching them through a series of exercises that can help place the crystals back in position.
