How is vertigo treated?

Dr. Michael Roizen, MD
Internal Medicine
Traditionally, vertigo treatment has depended on something called the Epley maneuver, which is a series of motions (usually requiring two people) that are designed to get the ear's fluid and particles back in the right position. When such position-adjustments don't work, surgery is an option, but an afflicted researcher at the University of Colorado, Denver's School of Medicine devised a simpler half-somersault motion you can do on your own. It's effective and prevents recurring attacks of dizziness better than the Epley maneuver.
