However, the main issue with treatment is that one has to first:
1) Correctly diagnose BPPV using the Dix-Hallpike maneuver
2) Determine what type of BPPV (posterior, lateral, or superior)
3) Decide which ear (right or left) is the culprit
4) And than use the correct maneuver to fix the problem (Epley, Lempert, or Deep Head-Hanging)
To assist in these steps for BPPV treatment, an online flowchart complete with videos has been created to guide a patient or healthcare practitioner.
The standard disclaimer being incorrect self-diagnosis is a risk that may lead to injury and further balance problems. Use of the following information is only meant as an educational tool. Please see your doctor to be formally diagnosed and treated. Please keep in mind that this flowchart is a general guide and that there are subtleties that are not addressed here.
For example, the video below which is part of the online flowchart demonstrates the Epley maneuver to treat POSTERIOR canal BPPV affecting the RIGHT ear.
