Abstract:

Epley's maneuver, also referred to as the canalith repositioning procedure, stands as a widely recognized and effective therapeutic approach for addressing the challenges of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). Over time, this maneuver has undergone refinements and adaptations to enhance its efficacy and ensure optimal patient outcomes. This narrative review offers an updated and comprehensive overview of Epley's maneuver, encompassing its historical context, fundamental principles, variations in procedural techniques, evidence supporting its effectiveness, and potential considerations for its application. By remaining informed about the most recent advancements and modifications, healthcare practitioners can confidently integrate Epley's maneuver into their clinical practice, harnessing its value as a pivotal intervention for the management of BPPV. This maneuver's impact reaches beyond mere symptom alleviation, as it addresses the underlying disruption in the vestibular system, highlighting its significance within the broader realm of vestibular rehabilitation. Through this review, healthcare professionals gain insights into the evolution and utility of Epley's maneuver, ultimately empowering them to provide informed and effective care for individuals dealing with BPPV.
