If you've ever heard a persistent sound in your ears, you know exactly how aggravating it can be. Indeed, ringing in the ears — i.e., tinnitus — can be a debilitating condition for many. Read on to learn more about what causes ringing in the ears and which hearing tests are useful for diagnosing it.
When testing or treating a patient for BPPV, there are multiple positional maneuvers that need to be performed on the patient to ensure the best outcomes. Some of these maneuvers are only used for testing, while others are performed solely in treatment of vestibular dysfunction. We aim to look into each of these maneuvers, what they’re purposes are, and how to perform them. If you have any comments or if we missed anything, please let us know in the comments!
