Should I See a Balance Specialist?
If you’re experiencing the following symptoms, you may have a balance disorder:
- Sense of spinning
- Feeling faint or lightheaded
- Unsteadiness and feeling like you might fall
- Blurred vision
What Will Happen at My Appointment?
Our balance specialist will discuss your symptoms, how long they’ve been present and the ways that they’re impacting your life. They will likely perform balance testing, which will help determine the specifics of the disorder you’re experiencing and how best to respond to it.
How Are Balance Disorders Treated?
The next steps will depend on what’s causing your symptoms. We will create a customized treatment plan based on your needs and lifestyle. If your symptoms are the result of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, or BPPV, the condition can be treated with specific movements. Other options include retraining exercises or diet and lifestyle changes. We may also provide a referral for medication or surgery.
The symptoms of your balance disorder don’t have to restrict you from living the life you want to. We can help.
