Stress, fatigue, prolonged pressure damage the nervous system.

However, according to the mechanism of action of the active pathology, the lesions are located within the ear area. Due to the movement of tiny calcium carbonate crystals located in the cochlea area. From one area to another. The crystals function to transfer information to the brain. From the wrong move, the brain thinks that being in motion causes certain symptoms to adapt.

What are the common vestibular disorder symptoms? 


Dizziness is the first sign of knowing if you have a vestibular disorder. You will feel the body spin, wobble. It is also extremely difficult to stand up and sit down.

When tiny crystals moving in the cochlea area cause symptoms of nausea, headaches, eye balance need to be hypothesized, actually these moving calcium carbonate crystals are located on the left ear, Right ear or both to have the right direction of identification and treatment.

Step 5. If the left side feels dizzy, then the left is the cause. If both steps 3 and 5 feel dizzy, the cause is in both ears.

The identification of this cause is a turning point for the application of the Epley Maneuver method in treatment.

Epley Maneuver method in the treatment of vestibular disorders

This method is quite strange in Vietnam, but widely used in developed countries. This method works by shifting the wrong ear stones back to their original position, which leads to the brain redefining its balance and movement.

Step 4. Hold that position for 30-60 seconds

Step 5. Raise yourself up, turning from 45 degrees to 90 degrees from the vertical. and lie on your head (chin touching shoulder) for 30-60 seconds

Step 6. Then sit up straight, your feet down on the edge of the bed.
