Need Help with Dizziness & Balance?
A balance disorder is a condition marked by the symptoms of feeling unsteady or dizzy. Even while standing, lying or sitting still, a person will feel as if they are moving, spinning or floating. The most common balance disorders are:
- Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo
- Meniere’s disease
Vestibular & Balance Testing
Vestibular testing is used to determine whether symptoms of dizziness are being caused by the balance system of the inner ear. The most common ones include:
- Electronystagmography (ENG). This series of tests measures eye movements via electrodes placed around the eyes.
- Videonystagmography (VNG). This test uses an infrared video camera attached to a pair of goggles to measure eye movements.
- Rotary Chair Tests. This test measures eye movements in response to corresponding head movements; it provides more detailed information about the function of the balance system than an ENG or VNG test.
- Computerized Dynamic Posturography (CDP). CDP tests measure how well the visual, vestibular and sensory systems work together to maintain balance.
- Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potential (VEMP). VEMP testing is used to determine whether the saccule (an inner ear organ) and vestibular nerves are functioning properly.
