From memory and balance testing to analyzing brain activity via EEG, we are certified to perform a range of clinical tests and procedures to better diagnose your neurologic condition.

Understanding Why You Feel Dizzy or Unsteady

We know that dizziness and unsteadiness do not feel the same to everyone and may indicate one or a number of medical conditions causing this common symptom. Our goal is to employ comprehensive balance testing to determine a patient’s risk of falling and to see if an inner ear (vestibular) condition may be causing balance or dizziness problems. Our clinical team, will employ diagnostic balance testing to investigate if a patient may be suffering from one of the following balance disorders:

  • Vertigo
  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)
  • Visual Vertigo
  • Lightheadedness
  • Disequilibrium
  • Meniere’s Disease
  • Migraine-Associated Dizziness

Testing & Diagnosis

Balance Plate Testing

In less than 60 seconds, this simple diagnostic device allows us to identify if you are at increased risk of falling. You will be asked to stand still on both rigid and soft surfaces as we measure your ability to control your center of gravity.

VNG (Videonystagmography) Testing

Non-invasive testing used to determine if an inner ear (vestibular) condition may be causing your balance or dizziness problem. VNG is a group of the following three tests:

Oculomotor Tests

Designed to evaluate a patient’s ability to correctly follow a visual stimulus based on several factors, including speed and accuracy.

Positional Tests

These tests involve moving patients into different positions on our exam table to evaluate the message the balance system sends regarding positional changes.

Caloric Tests

Inner ear irrigations are used to determine the overall responsiveness of the vestibular or balance system in each ear.

Are You at Risk of Falling?

An estimated one in every three adults age 65 and older experience a fall — which may result in serious injury and loss of independence. To determine if you may be at risk for a fall, take our 15-question balance survey by clicking the link below.
