Vestibular Testing Performed by Experienced Audiology Doctors Near Dickinson, TX

Dizziness can have many causes, some of which are related to the health and function of the peripheral vestibular system in the inner ear. Responsible for interpreting balance and spatial orientation, the vestibular system continually monitors the body’s movements and alerts the brain to any changes. The brain then transmits signals throughout the body, providing instructions on how to stay balanced.

If you frequently experience unexplained dizziness, vertigo, or imbalance, the audiology doctors at Autumn Oak, Speech, Voice, and Hearing can perform vestibular testing to determine the underlying cause. At our speech and hearing center near Dickinson, Texas, we can assess the function of your inner ear and eye reflexes with a battery of advanced tests.

What Does Vestibular Testing Involve?

The most common type of vestibular testing is electronystagmography, which consists of four sub-tests:

  • Air caloric test – measures eye movement when warm or cool air is introduced into the ear canal
  • Positional test – measures eye movement as the head and body move
  • Calibration test – measures pupil movement while the eyes follow a moving light
  • Pendulum tracking test – measures how well the eyes track a moving object
  • Rotary chair – assesses rotational movement

When administered together, these vestibular testing sub-tests can help us diagnose various conditions that can cause dizziness, including acoustic neuroma, vestibular neuritis, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, labyrinthitis, Usher syndrome, and Meniere’s disease. Once we confirm your diagnosis, we can develop a treatment plan to help you regain your balance and reclaim your active lifestyle.

The multi-disciplinary vestibular specialists at Autumn Oak Speech, Voice, and Hearing provide both diagnostic and rehabilitation services in a single location near Dickinson, TX. Contact us today to schedule an appointment for vestibular testing.

“My son Caleb attended Autumn Oaks for about two years because he had a speech delay. During his time there his speech and pronunciation improved greatly. Mrs. Eshita (our speech pathologist) is so encouraging, patient and supportive. The entire staff is friendly and great to work with. We cannot thank Autumn Oaks enough for helping our son!!”
