Have you ever felt like the room is spinning? This sensation is referred to as vertigo and can be bothersome and interfere with your daily activities. The most common cause of vertigo is called Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). Despite the disorder’s long name, the treatment is fairly simple and effective.disability.
Vertigo is a specific kind of dizziness in which one feels that the surrounding environment or the person himself is moving or spinning even though there is no real movement. But, unlike common belief, vertigo is not a specific symptom related to fear of heights.

Acupressure therapy can help in alleviating the symptoms of vertigo and dizziness naturally by stimulating a specific set of pressure points located on various parts of the body
VERTIGO SURGICAL TREATMENT BY OPENING THE SACCUS ENDOLYMPHATICUS
The contribution to the treatment of vertigo which forms the subject of this communication establishes the practical result of the research in comparative and human anatomy and pathology of the saccus endolymphaticus which I have pursued incessantly for the last eight years. Anatomy has demonstrated to me the constancy as well as the considerable size of the saccus endolymphaticus in vertebrates and especially in man.
The saccus, lying on the posterior aspect of the petrous portion of the temporal bone in a depression which I have called the fossa endolymphatica, constitutes in reality an intracranial extension of the labyrinth. The saccus lies in a space formed in the dura mater which divides into two layers, the antero-inferior attached to the petrous bone and the postero-superior in relation to the arachnoid and the cerebellum. The lateral sinus is the large blood vessel which skirts half of the
