Find Out Why You’re Dizzy With Vestibular Testing Near Pearland, TX

Man suffering from dizziness at home

Dizziness is an altered sense of balance, which some people describe as faintness, lightheadedness, or “feeling as if their head were spinning.” It is also common; statistics from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) indicate that dizziness will affect up to 70% of Americans at some point in their life. This is concerning because acute or chronic equilibrium problems can be a serious health risk that significantly increases the risk of injury due to falls.

The audiology doctors at Autumn Oak Speech, Voice, and Hearing near Pearland, Texas, provide expert assessment of balance disorders, which often originate in the vestibular system of the inner ear. Therefore, vestibular testing plays a key role in the diagnostic process. As a proud partner of the American Institute of Balance (AIB)—the global leader in the evaluation and management of balance disorders—our practice has access to the most current and scientifically robust clinical protocols in vestibular science, which allows us to provide the most sophisticated level of care available today.

Why Are You Dizzy?

Your body’s equilibrium results from a complex interaction that requires input from your inner ear, your vision, and your somatosensory system (tactile perception). After all three signals are received by your central nervous system, your cerebellum (the motor-control portion of your brain) causes your musculoskeletal system to move in order to maintain your center of gravity. If any component of this complicated system does not function properly, you may experience a loss of sure-footedness.

Through vestibular testing, we can determine the cause of your dizziness, provide a proper diagnosis, and suggest a treatment plan to help you regain your balance and resume your active lifestyle. What’s more, the team of multi-disciplinary vestibular specialists at Autumn Oak Speech, Voice, and Hearing can meet your diagnostic and rehabilitation in a single location.

Contact Autumn Oak Speech, Voice, and Hearing today to schedule a consultation near Pearland, TX, where you can learn more about vestibular testing and find out how the latest therapies might help you.
