Are their alternative treatment options for vertigo and dizziness?

Alternative treatment options for vertigo and dizziness will vary and be based on the cause of each condition. For example, in place of medications canalith repositioning maneuvers such as the Epley maneuver are commonly used to treat vertigo caused by calcium particles in the inner ear canal (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo). Canalith maneuvers consist of a series of head movements that help to move problem-causing particles out of the inner ear canal. Until the cause is treated, avoiding triggers like moving your head back and forth quickly or sitting and standing quickly can help you manage your symptoms.
