Move your feet at the ankle

If you have been sitting or lying down for a while, move your feet up and down near your ankle. You could also rotate your foot. These simple exercises will stimulate your circulation and help reduce symptoms.


Gentle ‘marching’

Gently move your feet as if you were marching. Doing it for a few minutes in a supine (lying down) position or sitting posture ensures that your blood circulation is restored to normal.

Move your legs

If you tend to get postural hypotension after you come to a stop (after walking, or after climbing stairs), do not stand immobile. Start crossing and uncrossing your legs. You could also opt for gentle ‘marching’ on the same spot.


Crouching or squatting can significantly help in overcoming postural hypotension. These simple exercises help reactivate blood circulation and can be used for sudden and unexpected situations of dizziness.

Cardio Exercises

Easy cardio exercises like walking, jogging, and running can significantly lessen symptoms of postural hypotension. Regular exercise has a positive impact on the body.

Strengthening exercises

Strengthening exercises are basically used to strengthen your core body. Exercising regularly under the supervision of an instructor may help reduce symptoms of postural hypotension. Lifting dumbbells, weights, and push-ups are some of the most common strengthening exercises suggested for people with postural hypotension.



Flexing your leg and calf muscles in a supine position is a useful exercise to help reduce postural hypotension. If symptoms persist, you could squeeze your thighs and abdomen, or flex your buttock muscles too.
