Dr. told me of a procedure, that he said works and sounds to simple to be affective.It is not a one shot deal and I do not know the name of it either.
There are two primary maneuvers: CRP (the Epley maneuver) and the Semont-Liberatory maneuver. The choice of maneuver depends on results of the Dix-Hallpike test (revealing which canal is involved) and whether or not the otoconia is inside the canal (canalithiasis) or hung up on the cupula of the canal (cupulolithiasis).CRP is thought to be effective in canalithiasis because it can help move the free-floating canaliths from the sensitive area (semicircular canal) into a place where it won't cause vertigo. It can be used to treat BPPV of the posterior semicircular canal or the anterior semicircular canal. Most people undergoing the procedure do so for posterior canal BPPV.These maneuvers must only be performed by a professional specifically trained to perform them, who can safeguard against possible neck or back injury as well as determine whether certain health conditions (such as perilymph fistula, detached retina, vertebrovascular insufficiency, esophageal reflux, and others) exclude a person from being a candidate for this procedure. Potential complications from this procedure include the possibility of neck/back injury or debris moving into another canal.
