Benign Positional Paroxysmal Vertigo (BPPV)
BPPV is the commonest affliction of the human balance system in the inner ear.
The inner ear consists of 2 gravity sensors which serve their function by calcium carbonate chalk particles called otoliths. Due to a trauma or an infection, these particles move from their original habitat to elsewhere in the inner ear generating intense positional vertigo. These particles can be sent back to their original places by moving the head in different ways called particle positioning exercises.
