It may be difficult for the healthcare practitioner to differentiate between BPPV (mechanical) and vestibulopathy (sensorineural) based on symptoms alone. The complaint of vertigo, postural instability, oscillopsia, and vestibular recruitment can point you to either diagnosis.
We’ve got you covered. Neurodiagnostic testing of vestibular function plays a critical part in determining etiology of symptoms, and ultimately, directing the successful management of the patient. Our tests are non-invasive, timely and generally more cost-effective compared to multiple visits to numerous specialists or unnecessary radiographic studies.
Thank you for continuing to let us be a part of your comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to care.
