Vertigo can have a debilitating effect on a person’s life, adding severe episodes of dizziness, nausea, and shortness of breath instantly sapping a person’s strength. Finding relief for these symptoms is not usually cut and dry. Powerful prescription medications can lead to drowsiness, loss in appetite, and nausea that can actually make the situation worse. That’s why many doctors are recommending at-home exercises for vertigo that relieve symptoms naturally. Patients should consult their doctor or a primary care provider to learn how to do these exercises properly.
Different types of exercises to help reduce vertigo symptoms:
- Sit on the edge of your bed and turn your head 45-degrees toward the ear that gives you the most trouble.
- Position a pillow under your shoulders, not your head, for when you lie down.
- Quickly lie back with your head still at a 45-degree angle and wait at least 30 seconds or for your symptoms to stop.
- Turn your head 90-degrees in the opposite direction and wait another 30 seconds.
- Turn your body on its side until you’re looking down and wait for another 30 seconds.
- Slowly sit up and remain still until your symptoms subside.
- Sit on the floor in an upright position.
- Lie down on one side with your head turned to a 45-degree angle.
- Rest in this position for at least 30 seconds or until your symptoms subside.

- Slowly sit up in your original position.
- Sit on the edge of your bed with your head turned 45-degrees to the left or right, the opposite direction from where your symptoms usually arise.
