Hearing & Balance Disorders in Salt Lake City, UT
Ensure Your Personal Safety & Steadiness With Our Expert Audiologists
If you or someone you love is experiencing hearing and balance disorders in Salt Lake City, UT, our expert audiologists, in conjunction with an Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) physician, can help you get back on your feet and feeling steady again. Our team of professionals uses the latest techniques to evaluate your balance system and recommend the best treatment option for your hearing and balance disorder.
Each balance test concentrates on a specific area and the goal is to determine exactly how and where your balance system is being jeopardized. Our testing is non-invasive and painless, and once we discover which area is affected, we can choose from a number of treatment and therapy options to relieve or fix the problem.
Symptoms Vary From Person to Person
Every person experiences symptoms of balance disorders differently. Most people will feel like they’re floating, spinning, or moving when standing, sitting, or lying down. Others feel faint when standing or feel like they might suddenly tip over. Some people may stagger when walking or experience blurred vision and/or disorientation and confusion. Then there are those who get vertigo, the feeling of intense spinning, which is also a symptom of some balance disorders.
Patients with symptoms of chronic dizziness or balance issues often find it challenging to perform daily functions. This can lead to anxiety, fatigue, and depression. If you’re experiencing abnormal dizziness or balance issues, and have dizzy spells when you stand up too quickly or when you’re dehydrated, it’s time to see our experts at House of Hearing.
What Causes Balance Disorders?
As we age, our risk for balance and inner ear disorders increase. There are many factors that can cause them including:
- Bacterial or viral infection
- Head Injury
- Ear Infection
- Certain medications
- Issues with your skeletal or visual systems
Bear in mind that sometimes these types of issues happen without any obvious or apparent cause and that dizziness and lack of balance are often the symptoms of an underlying medical issue. For your own safety, it’s best to make an appointment with one of our specialists.
