The Epley manoeuvre (canalith repositioning) can be used to treat posterior canal benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). BPPV is characterised by brief episodes of vertigo related to rapid changes in head position. BPPV can be confirmed by the Dix-Hallpike positional test. The Epley manoeuvre is easily performed in the clinic, or by the patient, and is described in detail in this article. It has NHMRC Level I evidence of efficacy and no serious adverse effects have been reported.
