The Finnish pages were first launched in Feb. 2006.


At the end of every chapter there is a direct link to the following chapter.



The DSB = The Dysfunction of the Sense of Balance

The TSB = The treatment of the sense of balance

PT = Positional treatment



The most important requirements for successful treatment of the DSB

  • Train the maneuvers of positional treatment (PT) as presented on these pages as carefully as possible.
  • Learn to recognize the difference between good and bad PT experience so that you can adjust the maneuvers for your      personal need.
  • Make an appointment to a muscle and joint balancing therapist       (a Finnish traditional treatment called Kalevalainen jäsenkorjaus) soon after you have started PT. Make the following appointment     in  2 – 3 months and after that 3 - 4 times a year depending on your symptoms.
  • If you wear spectacles have your sight tested with both your eyes watching uncovered simultaneously. Accordingly, get new spectacles with similar lenses. Have a sight check-up regularly and date up your lenses if needed.
  • If you don't take the other measures don't do positional treatment very often or at all even if you mastered the maneuvers.
  • If you repeat inaccurate PT maneuvers it can cause more and more harmful symptoms, which may be fatal for sick and / or weak persons.
  • Follow the date-ups on these pages: changes in the PT technique are still possible.

The guidance video in YouTube updated in 2018

Use Google to find the video with the following title:

00 The maneuvers of positional treatment for the dysfunction of the sense of balance (the DSB)

The purpose of every maneuver is to be as precise as possible. This has been done by shortening the radii of the bends and rotates as much as possible.

  • The maneuver for the horizontal canal: use a head band with two small "pillows" to aid the rotate of your head.
  • The maneuver for the superior canal: use a stool to make the movement of the head and the body more precise and easier.

The video program consists of three maneuvers with spoken instructions for the canals in the left inner ear. To treat the canals in the right ear do the maneuvers as mirror images compared with the ones on the video. Click the screen with the left button of the mouse to see a standstill picture. Each maneuver lasts about 13 seconds in the video program.

The maneuvers without breaks (as seen on the video) are obviously the most suitable for persons with few or minor symptoms. Persons with a little worse or more symptoms may need a little slower maneuvers for one or more canals. If a person has many major issues with his/her condition and health different angles in the bends and even stops in positional treatment may be needed. Thus, for example, one canal in her/his sense of balance can be treated with the relatively fast, unbroken maneuver, another (canal) may require a slower but unbroken maneuver, and a third canal may need a more complicated version with one or more stops.
