Recently, CBS news in Colorado sat down with Dr. Carol Foster from the University of Colorado Hospital to talk once again about her home vertigo remedy. Foster’s YouTube video went viral a few years back after she developed her own method to treat this debilitating condition.
What is Vertigo?
Vertigo is a sensation of movement where a person’s surroundings seem to whirl and create dizziness. This sensation most commonly stems from tiny particles, or crystals, that clump up in the inner ear canals.
Consequently, after experiencing positional vertigo herself, Foster built a model of the ear with her hands to asses how to remove the unwanted particles. From the model, she realized that by turning your head a specific way, and then lifting to a certain height, she was able to direct the particles back to their proper location within the ear. Foster has named her method “The Half Somersault Maneuver.”
