Official Title

Effectiveness of the Epley Maneuver Versus Vestibular Exercises in the Treatment of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)

Brief Summary

      Observation of the effects of Cawthorne-Cooksey exercises applied after the Epley maneuver on
      balance, vertigo symptoms, and quality of life in BPPV patients.
    

Detailed Description

      Study Objective:

      To observe the efficacy of Cawthorne-Cooksey exercises applied after the Epley maneuver on
      balance, vertigo symptoms, and quality of life in patients with posterior canal BPPV.

      Study Design:

      Single-blind randomized controlled study

      Sample Size:

      Thirty-six patients were recruited in the study and were randomized equally into Epley
      maneuver (EpleyM) and Epley maneuver and exercise (EpleyM&Exe) groups.

      Study Method:

      All patients were treated with the Epley maneuver, while CawthorneCooksey exercises were
      given to the EpleyM&Exe group as home exercises for 6 weeks. Static and dynamic balance,
      vertigo and associated symptoms, and quality of life were assessed with the Nintendo Wii
      Balance Board, Berg Balance Test, Vertigo Symptom Scale, and Dizziness Handicap Inventory,
      respectively. The assessments were repeated at the 1st, 3rd, and 6th weeks.

Primary Outcome

Nintendo Wii Balance Board (WBB)

Secondary Outcome

 Vertigo Symptom Scale (VSS)

Condition

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo

Intervention

Epley maneuver

Study Arms / Comparison Groups

 Epley maneuver
Description:  The Epley maneuver was performed for all patients (both EpleyM and EpleyM&Exe groups) included in this study until nystagmus had disappeared in each position. If nystagmus/vertigo was not seen, the Epley maneuver was not performed for patients at the 1st, 3rd, and 6th week assessments.
