This study is being done because the investigators would like to know how effective the Liberatory maneuver is in treating benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV).
BPPV is a problem with the inner ear that causes brief periods of vertigo triggered by changes in the position of the head such as rolling, looking up, or bending down. BPPV is presently thought to be caused by small pieces of debris or crystals becoming displaced within the inner ear. It can be treated by moving the patient through a series of positions called a maneuver. There are 2 different maneuvers currently used to treat BPPV by the clinician called the liberatory maneuver and the canalith repositioning procedure. We would like to determine how effective the liberatory maneuver is in the treatment of BPPV compared to a placebo maneuver.

The purpose of this study is to determine the relative short- and long-term efficacy of several physical treatment paradigms commonly employed for the treatment of benign paroxysmal positi...
The standard treatment of posterior semicircular canal benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is the canalith repositioning procedure or the Epley maneuver. Based on the present literature, ...
Rotational maneuver is a vestibular rehabilitation method, performed in a supervised manner. Using a rotating chair, subjects are rotated towards the opposite direction of dominant side in...
The propose of this study is to compare two methods of physical treatment for benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, by evaluating treatment effects on postural stability. The trail design...
This protocol seeks to determine the efficacy and reliability of a simple maneuver, the jaw thrust maneuver, in addition to cricoid pressure, in improving visualization of airway anatomy d...
Introduction Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is one of the most common and treatable causes of peripheral vestibular vertigo in adults. Its incidence increases with age, eventually leadi...
Introduction The chin-tuck maneuver is the most frequently employed postural maneuver in the treatment of neurogenic oropharyngeal dysphagia caused by encephalic vascular strokes and degenerative di...
[Purpose] The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of a decrease in thoracic kyphosis angle on the knee adduction moment during gait in healthy young individuals. [Subjects and Metho...
Plantar warts can be distinguished from calluses using the squeeze maneuver, a quick and easy method to diagnose plantar warts. This technique negates the need for an expensive diagnostic tool.
The tightly coupled strapdown inertial navigation system (SINS)/global position system (GPS) has been widely used. The system observability determines whether the system state can be estimated by a fi...
Forced expiratory effort against a closed GLOTTIS.
An illusion of movement, either of the external world revolving around the individual or of the individual revolving in space. Vertigo may be associated with disorders of the inner ear (EAR, INNER); VESTIBULAR NERVE; BRAINSTEM; or CEREBRAL CORTEX. Lesions in the TEMPORAL LOBE and PARIETAL LOBE may be associated with FOCAL SEIZURES that may feature vertigo as an ictal manifestation. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp300-1)
Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
A histamine H1 antagonist used in the treatment of motion sickness, vertigo, and nausea during pregnancy and radiation sickness.
Hearing, auditory perception, or audition is the ability to perceive sound by detecting vibrations, changes in the pressure of the surrounding medium through time, through an organ such as the ear. Sound may be heard through solid, liquid, or gaseous mat...
