Have you been feeling dizzy and can’t seem to make it go away? Did you know there is balance testing that can be done to help you find what may be causing the problem? Well there is! In Citrus Park, Tampa, Florida, Dr. Lauren Benoit performs balance testing on patients who report dizziness or vertigo, and can provide recommendations for further testing or treatment.
What exactly is balance testing? Balance testing puts your vestibular system, which is responsible for your sense of balance, to the test, and pinpoints what kind of disorder may be causing you to feel off balance. You will take part in a series of tests, each of which challenges a different part of the vestibular system. As strange as it sounds, the goal here is to make you feel dizzy – that way we can find out where the problem is!
It is best to see your primary care doctor before having any balance testing done, as there are several different things that can cause dizziness. If they do feel that balance testing is warranted, Dr. Benoit will remain in contact with your physician and work with them to provide recommendations and treatment options. Interdisciplinary collaboration at its finest!
While you may feel nervous about the testing, past patients have found it worth-while to have it done. Whether you have mild or severe dizziness or vertigo, testing and treatment can drastically improve your quality of life.
