Coping with BPPV (Home Treatments)

Here are some home treatments for BPPV:

  • Use two or more pillows at night.
  • Avoid sleeping on your side with the ear causing the problem facing down.
  • Get up slowly in the morning and sit on the edge of the bed for a moment before standing.
  • Avoid leaning over to pick things up or tipping your head far back to look up.
  • Be careful about reclining, such as when you are in the dentist’s chair or having your hair washed at a hair salon.
  • Be careful about participating in sports that require you to turn your head, lean over, or lie flat on your back.
