Balance Treatment In Austin Texas

Regain Your Balance, Regain Your Life.

Do you feel like the world around you is constantly spinning? Do you feel dizzy and nauseous when you roll over in bed? Are you having difficulty walking because you just can’t seem to catch your balance, especially in the dark? You may be suffering with a balance disorder.

A balance or vestibular disorder is a condition that makes you feel unbalanced or dizzy. You may feel like the room is spinning and become quite nauseous. Or you may have a painful migraine that causes you to become extremely dizzy at onset. These are all conditions that result from balance disorders. If you are experiencing any of these, you should seek treatment right away.

Your vestibular system consists of several structures. The primary structures are the semicircular canals, utricle and saccule. Your semicircular canals help with head rotations. Your utricle helps with horizontal head movements and your saccule helps with vertical head movements.

What Our Patients Say

My experience was excellent from the moment I walked into the door to the time I left with a pair of hearing aids that opened a new world of communication that I didn’t realize how much I had been missing. My work has improved and I can enjoy having a dinner conversation with family
