What is the Epley manoeuvre?

The Epley Manoeuvre, and a related manoeuvre called the Semont Manoeuvre are manoeuvres that the doctor or the physiotherapist sometimes do themselves on their patients with positional vertigo. If a patient describes vertigo, for instance, when looking up at the shelf or when they lie down in bed, or turn over in bed, that’s likely to be a positional vertigo, or BPPV. The Epley Manoeuvre or Semont Manoeuvres, or sometimes called liberatory manoeuvres can get rid of those crystals in the inner ear, which are the cause of the positional vertigo. These are very effective treatment manoeuvres. Nobody should suffer from positional vertigo because these manoeuvres get rid of it.
