If you suffer from hearing loss or other hearing and balance related conditions, you may benefit from an audiologic evaluation. These comprehensive diagnostic exams can determine the cause, severity and best treatment option for these conditions in infants, children and adults.
Common types of audiologic tests for older children & adults include:
- Diagnostic Audiogram
- Play Audiometry
Diagnosing a balance disorder can be a complicated procedure. Since dizziness and vertigo are symptoms of many conditions, it is hard to pinpoint the exact cause. Your doctor may perform a series of audiologic, vestibular and movement tests depending on your symptoms. Identifying the underlying cause and the type of balance disorder are both important in successful treatment.
Treatment for a balance disorder depends on its cause. Treating the underlying cause can eliminate balance problems for many people. For others, balance training exercises and life changes can help relieve symptoms. Surgery may be recommended for patients whose symptoms cannot be controlled by more conservative methods. Managing these complex conditions requires inter-disciplinary care.
Common types of balance tests include:
- Videonystagmography (VNG)
- Dynamic Platform Posturography (DPP)
- Auditory Evoked Potentials – also known as auditory brainstem response (ABR)
- Electrocochleagraphy (ECoG)
- Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)
