The Epley maneuver is a specialized therapeutic technique used to treat benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). BPPV is a disorder of the vestibular system of the inner ear that can cause vertigo attacks, especially during certain head movements. The Epley maneuver aims to alleviate these vertigo attacks.
The illustration shows the following steps of the Epley maneuver:
- First, the seated patient turns the head 45° to the affected side.
- Next, he lies back with his upper body and remains in the position for one minute.
- Next, the patient turns his head 90° to the opposite side and remains in this position for one minute.
- Then he turns the entire upper body to the other side.
- After that, the patient straightens up completely.
