Half Somersault Maneuver - Vertigo (BPPV) Treatment

The Half Somersault Maneuver (00:21) can be an effective alternative to the Epley Maneuver. Specifically for those individuals who are not able to perform the Epley Maneuver due to physical restrictions.

Both of these procedures are use to remove a crystal (otoconia) which has become displaced in the posterior semicircular canal. They are both 90% effective.

Note: In this video we are taking about benign vertigo (BPPV). Please note though the major of cases are BPPV, not all cases of vertigo are benign. Therefore, you should familiarize yourself with the RED FLAG SIGNS.
