Sometimes helps: The epley maneuver is to treat benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (bppv) dizziness. The maneuver is also called the particle (canalith) repositioning procedure. It was invented by dr. John epley and involves sequential movement of the head into four positions, staying in each position for about 30 seconds. A good summary is at http://www.Dizziness-and-balance.Com/disorders/bppv/bppv.Html.
