Although the world may feel like it is spinning out of control, that might not be why you are dizzy. If you are feeling dizzy, unsteady or like the room is spinning, a vestibular evaluation could be just what you need. A vestibular evaluation includes comprehensive testing of the complex inner ear and brain system that controls your sense of balance.
It’s easy to take your sense of balance for granted until you feel off-balance. Dizziness can be worrisome, and if it worsens, even daily tasks can be hard to accomplish.
- Electronystagmography (ENG)
- Videonystagmography (VNG)
- Evoked Myogenic Potential (cVEMP & oVEMP)
- Video Head Impulse Testing (vHIT)
- Electrocochleography (eCoG)
Based on your results and the clinical decision-making of your audiologist, these tests may be combined with additional hearing or diagnostic tests.
After your balance assessment is complete, treatment for dizziness takes many forms, depending on the cause. At Evergreen Speech & Hearing Clinic, our doctors of audiology collaborate with otolaryngologists, neurologists and physical therapists to target the underlying condition to reduce or eliminate the symptoms.
