Brandt-Daroff Exercises

Brandt-Daroff exercises are exercises often used to help treat (not cure) BPPV and vertigo. These should be taught to you by a licensed health professional to ensure you are doing them correctly – if you aren’t doing it correctly, it won’t help at all!

Below is a description of the exercise to give you an idea of what it entails.

1) Sit on your bed in an upright position.

2) Lie down on your side with your head at a 45 degree angle

3) Lie on your side until your vertigo/dizziness ends (30-60 seconds)

4) Sit back up straight in an upright position until your vertigo/dizziness ends (30-60 seconds)

5) Lie down on your opposite side with your head at a 45 degree angle

6) Lie on your side until your vertigo/dizziness ends (30-60 seconds)

7) Sit back up straight in an upright position until your vertigo/dizziness ends (30-60 seconds)
