Do you have a child with chronic vertigo or dizziness? If so then try the following maneovers which you can do manually with your child. You can sometimes cure the dizziness almost immediately.
This s a simple physical activity known as canalith repositioning or the Epley maneuver. You move your child's body through a series of head and body positions that are designed to dislodge the crystals in the inner ear that are supposed to cause dizziness…
Although this procedure is initially carried out under expert supervision by your doctor, it is nevertheless something that is relatively easy to learn, so it is quite likely that he or she will be able to teach you how to do this in the comfort of your own home.
This procedure is remarkably simple, with the underlying principle being that by following the step by step procedure, you dislodge the crystals in your own or your child's ears that are the root cause of the dizziness and move them to a position where they are no longer going to irritate the nerve hairs in your ears to cause vertigo.
Since this simple physical procedure was first identified as being a non-invasive treatment for BPPV by Dr John Epley in 1980, there has been an increasingly persuasive body of supporting scientific research for this particular strategy built up.
If you suffer from BPPV and you have never attempted this particular procedure, this really is all that there is to it:
1. Sit on the floor in an upright position;
2. Turn your child's head to a 45Â° angle towards the side where you have a BPPV problem before reclining the child onto his or her back
3. Stay in this position for up to 5 minutes;
4. Swivel the child's head through 90Â° so that it is now at the same angle facing in the opposite direction;
5. Stay like that for up to 5 minutes once again;
6. Roll your child in the same direction as you are already facing with your head still at an angle to his or her body so that the nose is now facing the floor, and stay here for the final five minutes;
7. Return to the sitting position, take a break for 30 seconds to 1 minute before repeating the whole process two or three more times.
As you can see by this straightforward description of the procedure, there really is very little to the Epley maneuver, which is probably one of the reasons why it is as successful as it has so far proven to be.
