I have Vertigo and just want to know how long you have to wait in between doing this maneuver. If you do it one day and don't feel right the next day can you repeat this again or do you have to wait a few says

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

The home Epley maneuver is a type of exercise help that helps to treat the symptoms of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV).

Your healthcare provider will tell how often to do this procedure. He or she may ask you to do it 3 times a day until your symptoms have been gone for 24 hours.

Most people say their symptoms go away right after they do the maneuver. In some cases, it may take a few times for the procedure to work. Some people may have mild symptoms for a couple of weeks. Once your symptoms go away, there is no need to keep doing the maneuver.

If you are not feeling right after doing the procedure and have concerns about continuing, please speak with your physician.
