Vestibular Testing for Balance Concerns
Do you suffer from Vertigo? Does dizziness often interfere with your day-to-day activities? Have you fallen due to losing your balance? If so, it’s time to get your inner ear checked.
At Gulf Coast Facial Plastics and ENT Center, our physicians offer Vestibular Testing and a full scope of audiology services to include a hearing pathway test, which is frequently combined with a vestibular test.
Please be aware that if dizziness is not caused by the inner ear, it might be caused by the brain, or from medical disorders such as low blood pressure, cardiac problems, vascular issues, infections, complications of diabetes, vision problems, or psychological difficulties such as anxiety. Recent studies have documented that vestibular tests are more accurate than a clinical examination in identifying inner ear disorders (Gorden et al, 1996). Getting a Vestibular Test is the first step in obtaining an answer to your balance concerns.
A referral from the patient’s primary doctor is all that is needed in order to proceed with scheduling.
Gulf Coast Facial Plastics and ENT Center has provided ear, nose, and throat services in this region for more than 20 years. If you are experiencing inner ear issues, please have your doctor refer you to our offices.
