Vertigo

More than half of patients with vertigo have a condition called benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), which is caused by a build-up of calcium carbonate crystals in an inner ear canal. 

Treatment Options

A one-time treatment can usually cure the sudden, violent paroxysms of vertigo and restore balance. BPPV does not damage the body’s balance system or cause symptoms between attacks. Patients receive one-time therapy, or intermittent therapy appropriate to their diagnosis.

To schedule an appointment for a consultation, please contact our Balance Clinic at (727) 461-8635.
