Home > Fitness & Health > Health Library > Vertigo: Level 2 (Harder) Balance Exercises
Level 2 exercises for vertigo are a little harder than the level 1 exercises. For all of them, start out slowly and gradually try to do the exercise for a longer time or for more repetitions. When you first begin, it is important to have someone with you to help you if you feel you are going to fall. As you progress, you may be able to do some of the exercises on your own.
If you are concerned about falling, always have someone with you.
Do this exercise twice a day. Try to progress to being able to turn a full circle with your eyes closed.
When it is easy for you to do this exercise, try doing it away from the wall. You can also try doing the exercise on a mat or other soft surface.
Do this exercise twice a day. Try to progress to doing this 15 to 20 times for each head movement and then with your eyes closed.
