Balance Disorder Q&A

What are balance disorders?

Normal balance requires proper functioning of your bones, joints, muscles, eyes, nerves, heart, blood vessels, and inner ears. 

Balance disorders are medical issues that make you feel dizzy or like the room is spinning. They can become crippling or even dangerous, increasing the risk of falls. Finding the underlying cause of balance issues and treating them naturally can dramatically improve your quality of life and prevent complications. 

What are the symptoms of balance disorders?

The hallmark symptoms of balance disorders include:

  • Dizziness
  • Spinning
  • Unsteadiness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Feeling faint
  • Floating sensations
  • Vision changes
  • Blurriness
  • Other vision changes
  • Confusion
  • Unsteadiness

You may feel as if the room is spinning around you or like you’re going to fall. You might have balance disorder symptoms when standing up, sitting, or lying down. 

What are the risk factors for balance disorders?

Balance disorders may result because of:

  • Medical conditions
  • Issues with your inner ear
  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)
  • Meniere’s disease
  • Migraines
  • Tumors
  • Head injuries
  • Motion sickness
  • Heart disease
  • Drop in blood pressure
  • Nerve damage
  • Joint, vision, or muscle issues
  • Some medications
  • Neurological conditions
  • Hyperventilation

Sometimes the cause isn’t clear, at least not initially. Finding the root cause of a balance problem and treating it is important to help you feel better as quickly as possible. 

How are balance disorders diagnosed?

Your Repair Recover Restore provider diagnoses your condition after discussing your symptoms and medical history and completing physical and neurological exams. You might undergo hearing tests, imaging procedures, balance tests, eye movement tests, heart rate and blood pressure tests, or other diagnostic tests.

How does my specialist treat balance disorders?

Treating a balance disorder may involve:

  • Balance training exercises
  • Positioning procedures
  • Physical therapy 
  • Diet and lifestyle changes
  • Supplements

Your provider works with you as often as needed to complete repositioning or balance exercises to fix inner ear problems or other underlying issues associated with balance disorders. They educate you on ways to minimize symptoms and prevent future problems. 

If you’re a candidate for surgery or further diagnostic testing for a complex underlying medical issue, the Repair Recover Restore team refers you to another specialist for care.
