Benign vertigo : Is usually positional or on other words is aggravated by head position changes. The treatment for benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (bppv) is epley maneuvers. Google the topic and treatment for more information. Some physical therapists are trained specifically in epley maneuvers.

Yes: Most people with benign positional vertigo do not have migraine. Epley maneuver may be curative but 50% of patients may recur at some time in their life.
