Half Somersault Maneuver to Treat BPPV Vertigo


https://www.FauquierENT.net – Video demonstrates how the Half-Somersault maneuver is performed to treat POSTERIOR canal BPPV affecting the RIGHT ear. Animation showing what is going on within the inner ear is also shown in the 2nd half of the video. This maneuver is considered an alternative to the Epley maneuver and is easier to perform when laying down is not feasible (ie, at work or in public place).
