Hearing and Balance Test Programs
Maintaining a sense of balance depends on the brain effectively processing a variety of information from the eyes, nervous system and inner ears. These balance organs tell the brain about each body movement. Balance disorders are caused by abnormalities to the balance organ or inner ear, resulting in vertigo and loss of balance that increase the risk of falling in older people as well as leading to the potential for more serious accidents while driving a car or using a machine.
Importance of Balance Tests
Hearing and balance disorders
are not only symptoms of old age. A variety of complicated medical conditions can also be contributing factors. As a result, treatment will be more effective and efficient if the conditions are diagnosed early. Hearing and balance tests are the most effective means of detecting these conditions in their early stages.
