Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)– half day (4 hours)
BPPV is the most common form of vertigo, affecting 50% of the population age 70 years and older. Many patients go undiagnosed and untreated for years, suffering needlessly with increased rates of falls, reduced quality of life and even depression. BPPV however occurs in the general population with a higher prevalence in individuals with migraine, vitamin D deficiency and mild head trauma.
Today’s highly evolved Canalith Repositioning Maneuvers (CRM) have been shown to be highly effective with a success rate of 97% with only 1.25 treatments and a recurrence rate of 5 %. AIB’s CRM protocols have been widely published and are referenced within the Gold Standards of leading Academies including; AAO-HNS, AAN, AAA, and the APTA.
