Answer

Treatment options for BPPV include watchful waiting, vestibulosuppressant medication, vestibular rehabilitation, canalith repositioning, and surgery. Since the benefit-to-risk ratio is so high with canalith repositioning, it appears to be the obvious first choice among treatment modalities.
