Canalith repositioning is a procedure that provides relief from benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). The condition is characterized by intense bouts of dizziness caused by disruption in the inner ear. The canalith repositioning maneuver works by moving small crystals, known as otoconia, inside the inner ear to relieve dizziness.
When Is the Canalith Repositioning Maneuver Recommended?
Canalith repositioning maneuvers are recommended for patients experiencing vertigo due to inner ear problems. The procedure provides excellent results, although multiple sessions may be required for full treatment.
How Is the Canalith Repositioning Maneuver Performed?
Canalith repositioning involves a series of head maneuvers that relieve vertigo. As your doctor moves your head, the otoconia inside your ear move away from the fluid-filled canals of your inner ear toward the utricle area of your ears. Your body naturally absorbs the crystals.
What Are the Benefits of the Canalith Repositioning Maneuver?
The canalith repositioning maneuver is an effective treatment in 80% of cases. To prevent injury to your neck and spine, seek treatment from a highly skilled board certified physician. While the procedure is considered safe and effective, when performed by an unqualified person, unwanted side effects may result, such as dizziness, nausea, and light-headedness.
