YouTube Videos Offer Vertigo Treatment Lessons

For people withِ vertigo, watching certainِ videos onِ YouTube mayِ helpِ treat theِ condition, according toِ a newِ study.
Researchers reviewed moreِ than 3,000 YouTube videos aboutِ vertigo treatments, andِ found 33 focused onِ the Epley maneuver, a technique aimed atِ preventing theِ dizziness thatِ vertigo brings.
Of theseِ videos, 64 percent accurately taught howِ to perform theِ maneuver, andِ therefore couldِ beِ useful resources forِ people withِ a type ofِ vertigo called benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), whichِ isِ caused byِ having free-floating particles trapped withinِ a canal inِ the innerِ ear.
