  1. First, the seated patient turns the head 45° to the affected side.
  2. Next, he lies back with his upper body and remains in the position for one minute.
  3. Next, the patient turns his head 90° to the opposite side and remains in this position for one minute.
  4. Then he turns the entire upper body to the other side.
