Do you or someone you know suffer from dizziness, loss of balance or unsteadiness, sensitivity to head movements or falls? If so, you may be suffering from Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), a disorder of the vestibular system which affects the alignment of the calcium crystals in the inner ear. These crystals can be dislodged due to an injury to the head, aging, infection or viruses, long term use or high doses of certain antibiotics, whiplash or other causes. 

According to the National Institutes of Health, more than 90 million people experience dizziness or a balance problem. 85% of those problems are a result of pathology within the inner ear. Balance related falls account for more than half of the accidental falls in the elderly population.
