The Epley Maneuver is a specific exercise used to treat benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), which is a common cause of vertigo. It involves a series of head and body movements to reposition crystals in the inner ear.
Physical therapy can play a crucial role in the management of vertigo, including the Epley Maneuver. A physical therapist can guide and assist patients in performing the maneuver correctly, ensuring that the head and body movements are done accurately. Additionally, physical therapists may incorporate other exercises and techniques to improve balance, coordination, and reduce symptoms of dizziness.
It’s important to note that the effectiveness of the Epley Maneuver and physical therapy may vary from person to person. Before attempting any exercises, it is recommended to consult with a healthcare professional or a physical therapist who can assess your specific condition and provide personalized advice.
