can be used to describe a variety of
medical conditions. General descriptions
of “dizziness” may
include sensations of spinning, unsteadiness,
light-headedness, disorientation, imbalance,
wooziness, visual difficulty, floating
or a “drunk” feeling.
Many patients do not realize that dizziness
can also be responsible for increasing
problems with mood, anxiety, depression,
short-term memory loss, poor concentration
and cognitive abnormalities.
Imbalance is usually
described as a sensation of unsteadiness.
This is often related to damage to the
inner ear or abnormalties in muscular
strength or control. Patients
with inner ear abnormalties will perceive
their imbalance as being “in their
head”, while patients with muscular
control problems typically describe their
imbalance being “in their feet”. Imbalance
patients are at high risk for falls and
usually show outward signs of their imbalance.
In the past, neurological symptoms (such
as dizziness, vertigo, pain, tingling,
numbness, etc.) were impossible for physicians
to see, leaving the doctor using his
best educated guess in treating these
is different. The NeuroSensory Center is
a state-of-the-art facility specifically
designed to provide the most complete diagnostic
evaluation available for dizziness, vertigo
and imbalance. This center is equipped
with Sensory View™ , a breakthrough diagnostic
system that provides a complete array of
non-invasive tests that allow your doctor
to “see” your problem, customize
your treatment program and verify the extent
of your recovery at pre-determined intervals.
