"My dizziness came back and I tried Brandt Daroff exercises
but I am not getting better. What should I do now?" To answer this question, one has to understand why they are dizzy. If they had BPPV before and it has come back, then I would not choose the Brandt-Daroff exercise as my first option to correct the problem. We now believe that Brandt-Daroff exercises can cause multi-canal BPPV. I believe the key is to determine where the calcium crystals are loose and then do the most appropriate canalith repositioning maneuver. This will likely require a health care provider trained in vestibular rehabilitation.
