Instructions for patients

The exercises should be performed three times in a row, several times a day. 

It’s particularly helpful to do the exercises in the morning straight after you wake up.

A “soft landing” reduces the efficacy of the manoeuvre. Therefore, there should be no pillow under your head when you lie down on your side.

You only need to do the exercises for as long as vertigo is triggered when you lie down on your side. The treatment can be ended when no dizziness is elicited by doing the manoeuvres the next day.

After each positioning movement you should remain in the new position until any dizziness has subsided (about 2 minutes).
