Loss of balance is an unwelcome condition experienced by many people as they age. Sometimes dizziness comes on suddenly, and sometimes people feel a gradual loss of balance over time. It may result from an illness, but often the cause is not obvious. No matter why it happens, dizziness can have a devastating effect on a person’s quality of life.
Quick and precise diagnosis of a balance disorder is an extremely important first step toward helping patients deal with their symptoms.
The focus of testing conducted at the Phelps Balance Center is the evaluation of various aspects of the inner ear balance (vestibular) system. The results of these tests are used to diagnose many of the most common forms of dizziness.
The Phelps Balance Center continues to expand and offers the latest diagnostic techniques and treatments for patients experiencing dizziness and imbalance.
