The Epley Manoeuvre is a series of movements your doctor may use to treat your vertigo. Here are the steps for the exercises. Your doctor or physiotherapist will guide you through the movements.
A single 10- to 15-minute session often is all that's needed. Crystal debris (canaliths) cause the vertigo.
When your head is moved into different positions, the debris moves freely. This may cause your symptoms to stop.
Follow-up care is a key part of your treatment and safety. Be sure to make and go to all appointments, and call your doctor or nurse call line if you are having problems. It's also a good idea to know your test results and keep a list of the medicines you take.
