Do you ever feel like the room is spinning around you? Is it bad enough to give you nausea? The most common form of vertigo is called benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). It is caused by the small crystals in the inner ear moving about and causing these altered sensations. There are more serious causes of vertigo that need to be evaluated for, however, if you have BPPV, this vertigo treatment is a maneuver developed by Dr. Foster, M.D. and can be a great help to those who suffer from it.
