Disclaimer: Please note that all the information contained on this Balance and Falls pages, including the treatment maneuvers for BPPV, are intended only to supplement medical care from a qualified medical professional. BPPV is a medical condition, and it should be diagnosed by a medical provider, and not “self diagnosed”. In addition, some patients with neck, back, or blood vessel disease can have problems if they try to do these maneuvers at home. Therefore, our goal is simply to provide an online resource, so that if you are instructed to do any of these maneuvers at home by a qualified medical professional, you have reference material available to help you do so.
