As a physical therapy practice, one of our specialties is treating BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo), a common condition that causes dizziness and a sense of spinning or motion. At Vertex, we use the Epley Maneuver, which has been shown to be highly effective in treating BPPV.
A study published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry found that the Epley Maneuver had a success rate of 80-90% in resolving BPPV symptoms. The study also showed that patients who received the Epley Maneuver had significantly reduced rates of recurrence compared to those who did not receive the treatment.
At Vertex, we offer direct access to physical therapy services, which means that patients can schedule an appointment with us without a referral from their doctor. If you are experiencing symptoms of BPPV, we encourage you to call us immediately to schedule an appointment. Don’t suffer unnecessarily – we can help.
During your appointment, our physical therapists will perform a thorough evaluation to confirm the diagnosis of BPPV and assess the severity of your symptoms. We will then develop an individualized treatment plan that may include the Epley Maneuver and other techniques to help relieve your symptoms and prevent recurrence.
If you are struggling with BPPV, don’t wait to seek treatment. Contact us today to schedule an appointment. Let us help you get back to feeling like yourself again.
