Labyrinthitis (cont.)

Medical Treatment

Depending on the cause of the labyrinthitis symptoms, the doctor likely will try one or more of the following therapies:

  • Medical treatment
  • Therapeutic maneuvers such as the Epley maneuver, if the doctor thinks benign positional vertigo-tiny stones bouncing around in the labyrinth-may be the cause. The Epley maneuver, developed by Dr. John Epley, is a movement of your head to move the stones a certain way to end the dizziness.
