Positioning Maneuvers

Positioning Maneuvers

The inner ear houses the body’s true balance center, the vestibulocochlear system. In some individuals, debris may accumulate in there. If this debris settles on sensitive areas within the tubes, it may result in vertigo. If the patient’s vertigo appears to be coming from the inner ear, a chiropractor may use the Epley Maneuver to reposition the debris to a more innocuous position.
