If you have benign paroxysmal position vertigo (BPPV) you may be experiencing vertigo or dizziness that occurs with changing positions. The room may feel like it is spinning and you may feel dizzy or nauseous. Your doctor may perform specific treatments like the Epley Maneuver to help your problem.

Your doctor may also refer you to physical therapy to help manage the symptoms of BPPV. You may be prescribed balance exercises and habituation exercises to help treat your BPPV. The Brandt Daroff exercises also can be a useful tool in the self-care program for BPPV.

Follow the step-by-step instructions to start managing the symptoms of BPPV. Be sure to consult your physical therapist or doctor before starting to be sure that the Brandt Daroff exercises are safe for you to perform.

Start by sitting comfortably on the edge of your bed.
