Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) Prevention
Most cases of BPPV do not have a known cause; therefore, no prevention is possible. There may be an association with minor head injury or repeatedly changing head position, for example working with a computer and constantly looking up and down at the monitor.
As one gets older, it is reasonable to change positions a little more slowly to potentially prevent vertigo.
