Brandt-Daroff Self-treatment Exercise for BPPV

If your therapist or physician has identified your dizziness as a condition called Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) this exercise may help you manage your symptoms. Generally speaking the Epley Maneuver, which your therapist has very likely done in the clinic, is generally more effective than Brandt-Daroff, but this exercise is easier to remember and for many patients helps temporarily relieve their dizziness. If your dizziness or vertigo arises from any other cause, this exercise will not produce satisfactory results, and at worst, may aggravate your symptoms temporarily.
