Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo Treatment | How To Prevent BPPV From Recurring?

In this video, SimpliHealth expert Dr. Raman Abrol is talking about Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo Treatment. As you just have seen in the previous video, those who have a condition of posterior vertical vertigo in which they often suffer from chakkar ana. 

How to treat this condition? 

We will also talk about the treatment in this video if you have not seen it. It will be very informative to you. The best way to treat benign positional vertigo is a particular maneuver performed by doctors. 

Diagnosis 

In this, the doctor tilts the patient’s head. We call this the Epley maneuver. But before performing this maneuver, the doctor needs to run some diagnostic tests to confirm that the patient has benign positional vertigo. In this, the most important thing is we check when we tilt the head, the patient may feel dizziness

And it is pretty visible in the eyes; when we tilt the patient’s head in a particular direction where they have dizziness, then their eyes start rotating, and if the doctor can detect the rotation of eyes while tilting the head, then it can confirm a diagnosis. 

Epley Maneuver 

After establishing this diagnosis, we do the Epley maneuver. In this, we tilt the head and body at a particular position. The purpose of this movement is to establish the small things that have been dispositioned from the balance organ of the ear. 

With the help of the Epley maneuver, we reposition small things in the balance organ of the ear, and the patient may not feel dizzy anymore.  

Medications 

Apart from this, if still the patients feel dizziness then we prescribe medicines to the patients like antihistamines like cinnarizine or betahistine. 

Do not panic 

Another thing is that the patient should reassure himself that it is not a life-threatening disease, so one need not panic. We see the patient have severe dizziness, and due to the severity, the patient feels it’s a life-threatening disease. 

Depression 

The patient may go into depression, have anxiety issues, and are mostly disturbed. So my advice to these patients is don’t panic. This is treatable. It is not a serious problem. We can easily manage it.
