The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) reports that 8 million American adults experience a chronic problem with balance.
Often people put off looking into their troubles with balance or dizziness with the hopes it will go away. This causes them more distress and discomfort that doesn’t just affect them physically but emotionally and economically as well. When someone has a balance disorder, their daily life is impacted and simple tasks become challenges. Their lives are interrupted daily with debilitating symptoms. The sooner we can detect it, the sooner we can get them relief.
The inner ear and brain help make up the vestibular system, which is in charge of processing the sensory information involved with controlling balance and eye movements. When a person has an issue with these systems, they experience symptoms that affect their everyday activities, such as vertigo and dizziness, imbalance, vision issues, hearing changes, and cognitive changes.
My job as an audiologist is to use all available resources to help whoever enters my office. Dizziness or loss of balance is the second most common complaint heard by primary physicians. We are trained to provide patients a thorough evaluation and multiple solutions. If we cannot help you, we will find someone who can.
It is difficult to accurately diagnose and report vestibular disorders due to their array of symptoms. Audiologists use hearing tests to measure hearing function when a vestibular disorder is a possible diagnosis.
With easy-to-digest resources available online and doctors eager to answer questions, we are primed to help the community understand balance disorders. Contact The Audiology & Hearing Center with questions regarding your hearing health. Karen Melton, AuD 573-756-0500 ... See MoreSee Less
