Do you feel your head spinning with certain movements? You may a condition known as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. 

 

The inner ear controls gravity of the body. 

Within the inner ear are small calcium crystals known as otoconia. They remain in the utricle and for unknown reasons can become dislodged, seeping the crystals into the posterior semicircular canal in the ear. Gravity causes them to drop into this region. This is what causes a person to experience a false sense of direction that gives the impression of the spinning notion. 

 

A technique performed in our clinic to assist patients with BPPV is the Dix Hallpike manoeuvre.
