St. Joseph's/Candler Specialists Help Restore Balance

Dizziness and imbalance are common problems. People who endure them oftentimes feel lightheaded, woozy, unsteady or even as if they are spinning. There may be other related problems such as hearing loss, ringing in the ears or a feeling of ear fullness.

Inner ear disorders, such as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), cardiovascular problems, and disorders of the central nervous system are just some of the reasons you may feel dizzy or off balance.

Fortunately, dizziness and imbalance are often treatable. With vestibular rehabilitation medication and/or surgery, symptoms of dizziness or imbalance may be improved or eliminated. To determine the best type of treatment, it is important to understand the cause of your dizziness and/or imbalance. Tests such as videonystagmography (VNG), electronystagmography (ENG), vestibular evoked potentials (VEMPs), Equitest® and audiometric evaluation help your physician understand the cause of your symptoms. Through a team approach that includes physicians, audiologists and physical therapists, we are committed to diagnosing and treating your symptoms.
