Balance

Symptoms of dizziness and imbalance can result from damage to the vestibular (balance) organs in the inner ear. A full range of diagnostic vestibular investigations are available in audiology, including:

  • Videonystagmography and caloric testing – a series of tests to determine the causes of dizziness and balance disorders
  • Electrocochleography – a technique of recording how the ear responds to specific sounds to determine if the ear is working correctly. Used to assist in the diagnosis of specific balance disorders.
  • Rotating chair

In vestibular rehabilitation clinics a highly specialized vestibular physiotherapist works with patients to develop individual management plans based on the patient’s abilities and goals. The team works closely with the ENT department.
