Brandt-Daroff Home Exercises



Overview
To speed up the compensation process and end the symptoms of vertigo. This exercise will not cure these conditions, but over time they can reduce symptoms of vertigo.

To do the Brandt-Daroff exercise:
  • Start in an upright, seated position.
  • Move into the lying position on one side with your nose pointed up at about a 45-degree angle.
  • Remain in this position for about 30 seconds (or until the vertigo subsides, whichever is longer), then move back to the seated position.
  • Repeat on the other side.
People using this exercise usually are instructed to do 20 repetitions of the exercise at least twice a day.
