Diagnosing Vertigo and Balance Problems

There is no feeling quite as unpleasant as having the room spinning around you, or having an unsteady feeling while you walk. What I am describing is known as vertigo. This condition can be very debilitating and affect the daily life of people that suffer from it. But as with any health problem, the best treatment depends on how good your diagnosis is. In the world of vertigo there are many different types that fall into two categories: central or peripheral vestibular dysfunction. This means there can either be a problem with the central nervous system or the balance centers of the inner ear. Considering how complex this condition can be, what is the best way to diagnose your vertigo and balance problems in Kingston WA?

Finding the Problem In Kingston WA

A good diagnosis always starts with a good history. After getting a good idea of what your symptoms are there are many orthopedic and neurologic tests that can be performed. The problem is these tests only give you so much information. Here at Kingston Crossing Wellness, we have a diagnostic machine and protocol called a VNG. This stands for videonystagmography. The unique thing about this device is it takes precise measurements and generates a report on exactly what kind of vertigo you are having, central or peripheral. Combined with the classic ortho/neuro tests we are able to formulate the most accurate diagnosis possible. It makes sense that if you have a better idea of what is wrong you also have a better idea of what treatment options would be most effective. With our team of providers, we can offer a natural approach for balance and coordination problems that will get you the best possible outcomes.
