What Exactly is BPPV?
BPPV is common among older adults who are over 70 years of age. Though, younger people do experience it too, especially women. Some of the common signs of this condition include triggers of body spinning, a faint feeling, giddiness, irregular movements of the body or only the head, etc. Luckily, you can only experience that for a few minutes every once in a while.
You can do certain things to get rid of BBPV while at home, but if it persists, visiting Milestone Physio & Wellness Clinic should be the next step you take.
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo BPPV is a very common type of vertigo. It is caused when a small crystal in the inner ear, otherwise known as the otoconial, adjusts from its normal position. This causes the whole body to be imbalanced, resulting in vertigo. The otoconial crystals are responsible for telling the human brain about geography and location. But in a situation when it is displaced from its normal place, the brain becomes dull and unable to sense geography.
