Balance Disorder Assessments

Excellent Treatment for Balance Disorders in Florida


Some people think their ears simply absorb different sounds, but actually, they do far more than that.
Hearing is an incredibly important human sense. It allows us not only to remain alert but also stay upright and poised at all times.

Our vestibular system, which sits inside our inner ear, is crucial to this ability. When paired with other senses, it allows our brains to acclimatize instantly to our surroundings.

But if it isn’t functioning correctly, due to illness or permanent damage, it can create issues for how we process the world – particularly affecting our ability to maintain balance.

Balance disorders are most common among those aged above 40 in America. Studies show that up to 35 percent of people may experience this issue at some point (National Center for Biotechnology).

The Hearing Center has a range of specialists, including ENT physicians, neurologists, and physical therapy providers, who can offer comprehensive treatment options for every single patient.


What Are The Symptoms?

A classic symptom of a balance disorder is a sensation of dizziness or vertigo – just as someone might feel if they were looking down from a high building.
But, in fact, there are a number of different symptoms that those with a balance disorder might experience. Among others, these can include

  • Issues with concentration or feelings of confusion
  • A sense of extreme tiredness or fatigue
  • Acute problems with movement and mobility
  • Delays in the response to stimuli
  • Vomiting or often becoming nauseous
  • Acquiring regular headaches or migraines

These symptoms may manifest themselves differently for each individual. Some may find their balance disorder is fleeting or limited in its impact. But for others, it can become a far more serious, long-lasting condition.

Balance Disorder Assessments

The Hearing Center offers anyone with a suspected balance disorder a comprehensive assessment.

Through these, our doctors of audiology can accurately diagnose the cause of an issue, examining their inner ear hearing system and conducting a number of advanced checks.

Part of this detailed process involves a Videonystagmography (VNG) testing. This is a specialized approach where they use infrared cameras to analyze someone’s vision within a darkened space.

A patient will be asked to undertake a series of simple exercises. Doctors of audiology can then review exactly how well their vestibular system is working.

Complete Treatment Options

The Hearing Center can prescribe a wide variety of different treatment options for balance disorders. With ENT physicians, neurologists, and physical therapy providers on our staff, we can precisely tailor these to each individual.

Medical or surgical procedures can be effective for some patients – especially if their balance issue results from an underlying condition.

The Hearing Center can also offer canalith repositioning for those suffering from benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) – an issue producing short but acute spells of dizziness.

In addition, there are a range of therapeutic treatments that are highly effective, and our excellent specialists can guide patients through these tried and tested methods of rehabilitation.
