Hearing Loss: Symptoms, Types, Causes and Treatment
Hearing is one of the primary senses that allow us to effectively communicate in the variety of listening situations we encounter each and every day. Healthy and properly functioning ears enable us to perceive sounds from a large range of frequencies, allowing us to hear in easy or very difficult listening situations. The human ear is an astounding part of our anatomy that enables us to properly develop speech and language, communicate with loved ones, and connect to the world in a variety of settings.
Balance disorders come with different symptoms. These symptoms can happen all the time or just occasionally. They could come on suddenly or be triggered by something like a position change, head movement, or sound stimulation. Some signs and symptoms of balance problems include:
Due to the nature of balance disorders, multiple doctors may be working together to assist you. An audiologist will first test your hearing and examine your ears. From there they can provide balance testing to help identify the cause of your balance problems and/or dizziness. Based on this information, they can make recommendations for treatment. We have specialized equipment to assist with this testing.
Sometimes balance problems require medical management such as surgery or medication, however, audiologists and other rehabilitation professionals can help improve your balance and reduce bothersome symptoms. They can offer vestibular rehabilitation treatment options such as repositioning procedures.
