Dizziness / Vertigo / BPPV


The feeling of being off balance—whether mild lightheadedness or full-on vertigo—can have a range of potential causes. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is one of the most common causes of vertigo and can be easily treated by Dr. Hashwani in our clinic. Your ears contain tiny crystals of calcium carbonate. BPPV occurs when these crystals clump together and sink to the lowest part of your inner ear. When you move, these clumps will cause the fluid in your inner ear to continue sloshing around, creating the false feeling of motion or vertigo.

Although “benign” in of itself, please do not postpone receiving an evaluation for BPPV, which can become serious if it increases your chances of falling. With a procedure that takes less than 15 minutes, Dr. Hashwani will move these loose “crystals” to a different part of your ear, thereby curing you of BPPV.
