The Epley maneuver is a series of movements, normally carried out on a person by a doctor, to relieve the symptoms of BPPV. Research has found it to be an easy, safe, and effective treatment for the condition in both the long- and short-term.

The Epley maneuver is sometimes called the particle repositioning maneuver or the canalith repositioning maneuver. A doctor doing the Epley maneuver will manually move a person into a series of positions. It can also be done at home by the person experiencing the BPPV symptoms.

The steps for both versions are detailed below. Steps of the Epley maneuver carried out by a doctor When a doctor carries out the Epley maneuver, they will perform the following steps: Ask the person to sit upright on an examination table, fully extending their legs out in front of them.

Quickly push the person back, so that they are lying down with their shoulders touching the table. The doctor holds the person in this position for between 30 seconds and 2 minutes, until their dizziness stops. Again, the doctor holds the person in this position for between 30 seconds and 2 minutes, until their dizziness stops. Next, they roll the person in the same direction that they are facing, onto their side. The side that they experience the worst vertigo on will be facing upwards.

Finally, the doctor brings the person back up to a sitting position. Steps of the Epley maneuver carried out at home It is best for a doctor to carry out the Epley maneuver if the person experiencing BPPV has not used this method before. Once a person has had the Epley maneuver performed by a doctor, they may want to repeat the process at home if they have further symptoms.

A person experiencing BPPV symptoms can follow these steps to gain relief at home: Sit up in bed with the legs extended in front of them and turn their head 45 degrees to the side that they are experiencing the most dizziness. Lie down, keeping their head turned to the side and lifted at a degree angle away from the bed.

They should stay in this position for 30 seconds to 2 minutes, until their dizziness stops. They should then turn their head 90 degrees in the other direction and stop when it is 30 degrees from the bed on the other side. Again, the person should hold this position for 30 seconds to 2 minutes, until their dizziness stops.

They should now roll onto their side in the direction their head is facing, holding this position until the dizziness stops. If a person is unsure what is causing their vertigo, they should speak to a doctor and ask to be examined. Other causes of vertigo include:.
