Occasional dizziness or imbalance is not usually a cause for concern. However, if you are regularly experiencing difficulty balancing, vertigo, and dizziness, your risk of injuring yourself drastically increases. You may find yourself unable to perform the daily tasks you once did with ease. If you are having these kinds of difficulties, our San Antonio and Hill Country audiologists at Associates of Audiology may recommend performing a balance evaluation to diagnose a balance disorder.

Balance Testing & Diagnosing Balance Disorders

The first step in diagnosing a balance disorder is to perform a balance evaluation, also known as a VNG (videonystagmography) balance evaluation. This is a series of tests performed to evaluate the health of your central motor function and the inner ear. We use this test to determine the cause of your balance, dizziness, or vertigo issues, which allows us to provide you with a viable treatment option.

The tests which may be performed during VNG testing include:

  • Ocular mobility
  • Optokinetic nystagmus
  • Positional nystagmus
  • Caloric testing
  • Diagnostic hearing evaluation
  • Videonystagmography
  • Voluntary eye movement testing
  • Auditory brainstem response
  • Computerized dynamic posturography

Treatment for Balance Disorders

At Associates of Audiology, we realize that every patient is different and therefore work to establish individual treatment plans designed just for you. Depending on your history and the findings of the testing performed, we may recommend a combination of treatments including visual and motor exercises, habituation exercises, and balance retraining. Our San Antonio and Hill Country audiologists' have more than 30 years of combined experience in the field. The goal of treatment is to help you decrease any vertigo or dizziness, reduce the risk of falls or injury, and improve your balance function.
