Easy Exercise To Combat Vertigo — Dizziness Relief
Hey, it’s Dr. Gerstin from Align Wellness Center here in Northbrook, Illinois, and I wanted to share with you one of the maneuvers that we’ve worked with patients on who have experienced vertigo. So if you or someone you know has experienced vertigo, could you please share this video with them so they can make sure to do this? Also, if you like it, give it a thumbs up.

If you’ve experienced vertigo, which is where you feel as though the room spins around you and you have no control over it, and you feel dizzy, you may feel a little bit nauseous. This is a maneuver that helps to regulate and helps to balance out some of the particles that may be loose in the vestibular canals in the ear.
The way I teach our patients to wind up doing it is to wind up standing, and you wind up bending your head as far forward as you can. Now, you want to be sure that you’re prepped with a chair that has arms that you could hold onto, as well as has a back to it. So, a bed’s less than ideal to do this on. Or, a bench. Less than ideal to do this on.
So once again, you wind up standing and you put your head down as far as you can between your legs. You can hold onto the chair and you want to stay here until any dizziness winds up going away. Any imbalance winds up going away. Once you’ve done that, you want to hold yourself there for about ten to thirty seconds without any dizziness, and then you want to quickly move to a seated position. So, you just want to plop your butt down. Now, you want to be sure, and then you want to sit there for another thirty seconds. Now, the reason that you want to be sure that there’s a back to it is in case you wind up plopping down so fast you push yourself back, you don’t go falling over the bed, or lying down, because that can cause you to be a little bit more dizzier, have a little bit more of the vertigo.
If you or someone you know has been going through this, there’s also a few other maneuvers that are out there on the internet, feel free to check them out. They may be the right one to trigger the semicircular canals and help balance yours. But, if they don’t wind up helping you, maybe there needs to be another natural means to attack it from.
As a chiropractor, we’ve seen great results in helping people to manage their vertigo without drugs, surgery, or these maneuvers. If you want to see if you might be possible, feel free to give us a call, write us in the comments, give us a thumbs up and like, and if you or someone you know is experiencing vertigo, please, be sure to share this video with them so they may be able to help get some symptomatic relief here and now.
Once again, I am Dr. Gregg Gerstin with Align Wellness Center here in Northbrook, Illinois, and thank you for letting me be a part of your health.
