At the Utah Valley Balance Center, our highly qualified and experienced therapists and audiologists work with patients to evaluate the source of their dizziness and balance problems and provide a treatment plan to provide relief.
Tests and Diagnosis
The onset of dizziness symptoms can be upsetting, and sometimes even incapacitating. Accurate diagnosis of the underlying cause of the symptoms requires medical professional expertise. Due to the complexity of the balance system in the body, a team of medical professions from a variety of backgrounds may be called upon to perform tests and assist in the evaluation and treatment. This may include:
- Audiologic testing
- Eye movement testing
- Computerized Dynamic Posturography
- Electrophysiologic testing
- Imaging studies
Before Your Appointment
- Complete a dizziness questionnaire ahead of time. A copy can be mailed or email to you, or you can download it here.
- Bring a list of all medications (including over-the-counter medications), and any vitamins or other supplements you might be taking.
- Be prepared to share any health conditions or symptoms you have, even if they seem unrelated to your dizziness.
- For some tests, your physician may direct you to restrict food and some medications for a brief time prior to testing.
- Prepare to describe your symptoms in details, describing them in specific terms.
