How to Prevent BPPV from Recurring (Vertigo)

February 5, 2024

If you’ve had BPPV before, you’ll want to do everything you can to keep it from coming back!

BPPV, also known as Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo, occurs when little crystals called “otoconia” float into the inner ear canals from an adjacent inner ear organ.

The result can be very uncomfortable and sudden vertigo.

For some people, effectively treating the BPPV once with the Epley Maneuver and/or the Gufoni Maneuver will be enough to keep the vertigo from coming back.

But for others, the vertigo can recur, sometimes frequently.

In this video, I’ll answer some common questions I get from viewers about how to prevent BPPV from recurring, and I’ll also share 3 tips to help minimize the vertigo from coming back in the first 24-48 hours.

If you’ve had success treating your vertigo or preventing it from coming back after treatment, please share your story below!
