The Semont manuever (also called the “liberatory” maneuver) is effective in ridding the symptoms of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) with a cure rate of 90.3%. The Semont maneuver involves the patient rapidly moved from lying on one side to lying arrest on the other. A single 10 – 15 minute session is usually all that is required.

The Semont manuever (also called the “liberatory” maneuver) is effective in ridding the symptoms of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) with a cure rate of 90.3%.

The Semont maneuver involves the patient rapidly moved from lying on one side to lying on the other. A single 10 – 15 minute session is usually all that is required. When your head is firmly moved into the different positions, the crystal debris, or canaliths, causing vertigo will move freely and no longer cause the BPPV symptoms.The Semont and modified Epley maneuvers are more effective than other treatments for BPPV, such as the Brandt-Daroff exercise.

The Semont maneuver is performed as follows:

a) When seated the doctor turns your head 45 degrees horizontally toward the unaffected ear.

b) The doctor then tilts you 105 degrees so that you are lying on the side of the affected ear with your head hanging and your nose pointed upward. You remain in this position for around 3 minutes – allowing debris to move to the apex of the ear canal.

c) The doctor then moves you quickly from the seated position, holding your head in place, until you are lying on the side of the unaffected ear with your nose pointed to the ground. You remain in this position for 3 minutes allowing the debris to move toward the exit of the ear canal.

d) The doctor then slowly moves you back to the seated position. The debris should fall into the utricle of the canal, where it will no longer cause vertigo sensations.

The Semont and Epley maneuvers may improve or cure benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) with only one treatment, however some people may need multiple treatments.

There are various procedures and several different types of vertigo. It is suggested that you start with a full Vestibular Evaluation by a doctor doing functional neurology or Therapist (Physical or Occupational) as they can assist in diagnosing your vertigo problem and then treat it appropriately.
