The Physical Therapy Department at CMH Can Help
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo is caused when microscopic debris collects within any of the three U-shaped canals within a tiny part of the inner ear. This debris is comprised of calcium carbonate crystals and when they are dislodged they can cause extreme dizziness, nausea and fear.
I experienced this recently, and it was an awful and scary experience. I mentioned to a doctor that I had vertigo and he told me I could be cured of this right away. It was simple, painless and took all of 15 minutes.
