Buy Brandt-Daroff WorksheetBPPV, or Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo, can literally stop you in your tracks. Hopefully this vertigo treatment with Brandt Daroff exercises will help. But as always, make sure you are properly diagnosed because the symptoms can be coming from something more serious and dangerous.

Exercises for BPPV will often increase your symptoms, and sometimes make you sick. However, each time you do them, the symptoms should decrease. Make sure you have a bucket just in case you get sick, and don’t plan on going anywhere right after you do these exercises just in case they make you feel a little worse.

These exercises are called Brandt-Daroff exercises. Start in an upright, seated position. Then move into a lying position on one side with your nose pointed up at about a 45-degree angle. Stay in this position for about 30 seconds (or until the vertigo subsides, whichever is longer). Then move back to the seated position and stay for 30 seconds. Repeat on the other side. This should be done 5 times on each side, 2 times a day holding each position for 30 seconds. It is recommended to do these for at least two weeks even if your symptoms go away before then.
