Considerations and Precautions
Persons with Meniere's should make sure that they are symptom-free at the time they engage in an exercise session. One should also use caution when quickly changing body positions, but it should be emphasized that the goal is to get used to movement with body awareness. Using strength machines may be best in the beginning, as the machine will keep body position stable. As strength increases, the use of free weights can be incorporated. Include at least one exercise for each muscle group.
When attempting balance training exercises such as standing on one leg and those included above, begin on a stable surface, and as ability improves, change the surface to uneven, soft, or moving. Begin with eyes open; as ability improves, eyes can be closed. Another way to change the intensity of a stability exercise is to change the head position.
Maintaining a healthy body through proper diet, exercise, and quality sleep can do a lot towards preventing an episode. Following a low-salt diet has also been found to effective in controlling the condition. Moderation and a consistent routine may help persons with Meniere's take great strides toward management of conditions and overall well-being.
