A Professor at the University of Colorado Hospital has put the internet on fire with her single YouTube video in which she is suggesting a body movement to treat vertigo at home.
The Associate Professor and Director of the Balance Lab at the University of Colorado School Of Medicine on the Anschutz Medical Campus Carol Foster described the simple way a person can get rid of vertigo – a disease in which the sufferer sees everything spinning around him combined with severe nausea- at home.
“Tip your head up to take a gander at the ceiling”, she says. At that point, put your head topsy-turvy just as you will do a somersault. In that pose, I need you to swing to confront your left elbow”.
She explained everything step by step in her video that has already crossed 2M views.
She further says, “You sit tight for any dazedness to end. And at that point raise your head for the back level. Sit tight again for the tipsiness to end and then at that point sit back rapidly.”
Kathy Walsh, the CBS4 Health Specialist covered this treatment in a story back in 2012 and at that time, the treatment video rocked 2.6M views on cbsdenver.com.
In the personal video, Foster describes how she figured out the cause of vertigo. She says that there are some particles in the ear that start moving and make clumps that cause dizziness. She then figured out how this movement can get reversed. She used her hands to find the right position that could bring the particles back to the normal position and then she introduced the somersault like movement to treat vertigo in which she asks patients to watch the ceiling first then sitting on their knees position your head on the floor quite vertically. Then she asks them to turn the face towards the particular direction and to come back to normal position after counting 30.
There are a number of successful success stories under the impression of Foster’s method and sufferers of vertigo are praising Foster like a Greek Goddess.
“I don’t think I’ve gotten up to the level of a feline video yet,” she giggled. But this great woman has made the world a little better for those who were seeing it spinning for so long.
