People suffering from Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)—a displacement of “ear rocks” or microscopic crystals in the ear that help regulate balance—may have a new form of relief, according to an ABC2 WMAR Baltimore news segment.
According to the segment, BPPV is reportedly one of the most common forms of vertigo and can be caused by sports concussions, head injuries, car accidents, or hormonal changes in women.
The crystals can be “repositioned” in a doctor’s office with a few physical maneuvers, according to ABC.
