Vertigo and Dizziness
Dizziness is a common symptom found among many conditions. Each person is affected differently as “dizziness” can present itself in many different forms:
- Dizziness or blurry vision with head movements
- Neck tightness, stiffness and/or pain
- Imbalance or the need to hold onto objects when walking
- Frequent falls
- Unsteadiness or disequilibrium
To properly treat this condition we must be able to determine what is causing it. Our doctors determine if the issue is arising from multiple areas of the neuro-axis such as the brain’s ability to integrate information, the inner ear, eyes, cervical spine or cardiovascular in nature. There is no single treatment that can improve dizziness and everyone will respond differently to various treatments.
We assess vertigo and dizziness conditions utilizing VOG (digital eye movement recording), computerized dynamic posturography (digital balance assessment), computerized neurocognitive evaluation, hand-eye coordination, in conjunction with a thorough neurological and physical examination.
We also take the time to review any relevant vestibular and/or audiologic laboratory testing, as well as blood work.
