What is BPPV?
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is an inner-ear problem that causes short periods of dizziness when your head is moved in certain positions. It occurs most commonly when lying down, turning over in bed, or looking up. This dizzy sensation is called vertigo. Fortunately, most people recover from BPPV with a simple but very specific head and neck maneuver performed by a Physical Therapist.
