Vertigo Causes and Treatments
Several body systems interact together to keep the body in balance. As such, dizziness and nausea that arise from vertigo can result from several conditions or factors.
These conditions can be described in many ways. Some report a particular feeling, like spinning and dizzy spells, cart-wheeling, tilting, faintness, light-headedness and floating sensations. While others report visual disturbances, nausea or sensitivity to particular movements.
The Dizziness and Nausea Vertigo Causes Can Have Major Effects on Quality of Life
The Ear Science Implant Clinic’s qualified team provide premium balance-related diagnostics, as well as vertigo treatment and management options. We use specialised equipment to conduct balance tests, looking at the vestibular system (in the ear) and responses from the eyes, the muscles, and the central nervous system, which make up the wider balance system.
How to test your balance
The human balance system is very complex, composed of interacting systems in our ears, our eyes and our muscles.
You may experience dizziness and nausea and require vertigo treatment when one of these controlling systems is out of sync with the sensory information provided by the rest of your body. For example, one of the ears, eyes or muscles systems might not be functioning correctly, otherwise, the brain may not be processing the sensory input correctly.
