Effectiveness of the Canalith Repositioning Procedure in the Treatment of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo
This course will explore the mechanical disorder of the inner ear known as Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV).Typical symptoms, provoking activities, diagnostic testing related to posterior canal canalithiasis will be discussed. Results of a Cochrane review about the evidence for and against the effectiveness and appropriateness of diagnostic tests and treatment interventions for posterior canal BPPV will be outlined in detail. These results will then be applied to a clinical case and used to demonstrate how a Cochran review can inform clinical decisions. The course focuses on an adult patient with BPPV. The question is: Can a canalith repositioning procedure help this patient?
