A R Nørregaard, H H Lauridsen, J Hartvigsen

Abstract:

Objective: This article describes and discusses the case of a patient with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) characterized by severe vertigo with dizziness, nausea, and nystagmus, treated without the use of spinal manipulation by a doctor of chiropractic. Clinical features: A 46-year-old woman presented for care with complaints of acute vertigo and dizziness. Intervention and outcome: The patient was examined and diagnosed with left posterior canalolithiasis by means of the Dix-Hallpike maneuver. She was treated successfully with the Epley maneuver once and subsequently discharged without further treatment. Conclusion: This case demonstrates the importance of correctly identifying patients with BPPV. This case also demonstrates the successful treatment of BPPV.
