Do you have Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo or BPPV? If you do, how often do your attacks occur? Once a week? Twice or four times, perhaps? Have you exhausted various remedies for vertigo but experienced minimal improvements? Are you concerned that your BPPV episodes might occur while lifting weights in the gym or taking the train to work?
Your fears and worries are very real. And truth be told, quite many can easily relate to what you’re going through. In fact, a lot of people seeking Davie vertigo Chiropractic Care from our practice always ask us, what’s the normal range of BPPV attack frequency? How do you know if the issue has become chronic? Am I beyond saving? Let’s help you gauge the severity of your situation.
Many patients diagnosed with BPPV note that their episodes don’t observe a distinct pattern. Instead, their vertigo attacks happen without warning. This is all because of the displaced or dislodged crystals inside the inner ears. Fragments of the otolith organ – a tiny structure in the ear that aids in detecting movements can get stuck in places they shouldn’t be. They interfere with your inner ears’ normal function causing you to detect amplified signals when you tilt your head.
As a result, every time you move your head or shift from one position to another (which can be several times a day), you will likely experience disorienting vertigo episodes.

Life can quickly turn hellish when you have a chronic vestibular disorder like BPPV. That’s why it pays to have your go-to options for relief. Below is a quick list of vertigo remedies that you can try to explore:
Because sudden movements can immediately trigger an attack, you might find it helpful to be extra wary. Take your time when shifting from one position to the next so you can avoid overwhelming your inner ears and organs of balance.
The displaced calcium crystal in your inner ears can dissolve over time, but it may be worth seeking a therapist and trying the Epley Maneuver technique. This vertigo remedy helps re-locate displaced fragments of the otolith away from the fluid-filled sections of the ears. It also helps recalibrate your balance organs so they can gradually work smoothly again. It can also aid in minimizing the severity of your episodes just until the crystals completely dissolve and get reabsorbed by the body.
Gentle neck bone adjustments are necessary for BPPV patients with a history of concussions, whiplash, and similar injuries. That’s because cervical spine misalignments can interfere with the transmission of signals to and from your brain. Furthermore, it can affect blood flow to the brain (another risk factor for vestibular problems beyond BPPV).
Thankfully, you can restore balance in your nervous and vestibular system through a carefully devised Davie vertigo Chiropractic Care plan. This would allow you to manage your episodes better and go back to your normal routine in no time.
