One way of treating Posterior Canal BPPV is to do the half
somersault. Today we will be
demonstrating the right half somersault.
Initially you have the patient look straight up in the air and hold that
for 30 seconds. Then you ask the patient
to put their head on the ground, top of the head to the mat and hold this
position for 30 seconds. For right-sided
BPPV, the patient will turn their head with their head chin towards their right
elbow and hold this for 30 seconds. Then
the patient comes halfway up and holds for 30 seconds and then sits up with
their head up and the maneuver is finished.
