Figure out what is knocking you off balance

Dizziness, vertigo, and balance issues can be highly nerve-wracking symptoms to experience, especially when you do not know what is causing them. You may have even already been to other doctors who have been unable to pinpoint the cause of your troubles.

Don’t give up. We sympathize with your concerns and are able to offer you advanced testing to evaluate your inner ear and nervous system for physical causes of your symptoms. Tests offered include:

  • Rotary chair test
  • Evoked potential test
  • Videonystagmography (VNG)
  • Computerized dynamic posturography (CDP)

Once the results of your tests are in, Dr. Khan will be able to suggest a treatment plan that will provide you with relief from your symptoms.

Sometimes, dizziness, vertigo, and balance issues occur with no detectable explanation. This does not make your symptoms any less real. Even if your testing shows no abnormalities, treatments offered in the office may still help to alleviate your symptoms.

Stay safe and get treated

After thorough evaluation of your condition, you will be able to begin the treatment plan Dr. Khan has designed for you.

Most likely, your treatment will consist primarily of physical rehabilitation and balance training provided by a physical therapist who specializes in dizziness and balance disorders.

Over time, you will experience a noticeable reduction or even complete disappearance of your dizziness, vertigo, or balance issues with this training.

If testing reveals a particularly troublesome cause of your symptoms, such as a stroke, heart issues, or a brain tumor, you will be referred to the appropriate specialist to address your health issues.

While you are in the process of recovering from your dizziness, vertigo, or balance issues, follow these safety tips to protect yourself from getting hurt:

  • Keep a well-lit, uncluttered home. Always make sure that light switches and night lights are easily accessible.
  • Rely on handrails to assist you in traveling up and down stairs.
  • Keep a flashlight near your bed in case you have to get up during the night.
  • Place slip-resistant mats and adhesives in your bathtub
  • Wear properly fitted, slip-resistant shoes
  • Avoid driving as much as possible. Always catch a ride from a friend or family member when you can.
  • Get up slowly from a position of lying or sitting down
