Untreated Hearing Loss

Hearing loss, if left unaddressed, can lead to a range of consequences that extend far beyond difficulty in hearing conversations. Understanding these risks can help you make informed decisions about your hearing health.

Balance Disorders

Balance disorders are a group of medical conditions characterized by disturbances in a person’s ability to maintain stability and balance.

These disorders can manifest as dizziness, vertigo, unsteadiness, or a feeling of spinning or floating. If you have a balance disorder, you have a higher risk of experiencing a fall or accident.

Proper diagnosis and treatment by a healthcare professional are essential to mitigate the risks associated with balance disorders. At Adept Audiology, we’ll help you improve your stability and confidence in navigating daily life.

Types of Balance Disorders

Balance disorders can be caused by inner ear problems, neurological conditions, medication side effects, or even age-related changes in the vestibular system.

 A balance disorder can significantly impact your quality of life, affecting your mobility, emotional well-being, and overall daily functioning.

One common type of balance disorder is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), characterized by brief but intense episodes of vertigo triggered by specific head movements. Meniere’s Disease is another balance disorder. Symptoms include recurrent vertigo, tinnitus, hearing loss, and a feeling of fullness in the ear.

Vestibular Neuritis is often caused by a viral infection affecting the inner ear and leads to sudden, severe vertigo. Other balance disorders may stem from neurological conditions like Parkinson's disease or Multiple Sclerosis, so it’s important to identify the type of balance disorder you have so you can get a tailored treatment plan.
