Tests for Dizziness

Balance issues often stem from the inner ear, a crucial component of the body's vestibular system responsible for maintaining equilibrium. The inner ear houses structures such as the semicircular canals and otolith organs, which detect head movements and spatial orientation. When these structures are disrupted by conditions like vestibular neuritis, Ménière's disease, or benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), the brain receives inaccurate signals about the body's position and motion. This misinformation can lead to dizziness, vertigo, and balance instability, highlighting the inner ear's vital role in coordinating our sense of balance.

The following tests and treatments can be used to help figure out the cause of a person's dizziness as well as possible treatment. This list is by all means not meant to be a comprehensive list. Evaluation by an ENT, neurologist, cardiologist, spine specialist, vascular specialist, and vestibular physical therapist may be required to fully diagnose and treat dizziness.
