Dizziness consultation at the Lans Medicum
Get back into balance with vestibular therapy
Dizziness and balance disorders are very unpleasant and can severely restrict the quality of life. The causes of dizziness are manifold and often the right treatment presupposes a multitude of examinations and diagnoses. In order to be able to help those affected adequately and in the long-term, an individual assessment and differentiation of the cause of dizziness is necessary.
What is dizziness?
The organ responsible for balance is well protected in the petrous bone of the inner ear. This vestibular system registers all kinds of positional changes and accelerations and is thus responsible for the perception of the position and movement of the body. It cooperates with the visual system of the eyes and the proprioceptive system, the perception of muscles, tendons and joints. These three systems influence each other. If a disturbance occurs in this highly complex balance system, dizziness can arise – figuratively making the world spin.
There are many different types of dizziness:
The most frequent occurrence is positional dizziness, which can be relatively easily treated with the correct measures. Another type of dizziness is characterised by the one-sided or bilateral failure or weakness of the balance organs: unilateral or bilateral vestibulopathy, vestibular migraine, Meniere's disease, and some other symptoms. Here, the vestibular rehabilitation can help with specific therapies: Known in Canada and Australia for a long time, there are so far only few researchers in this specific field practising in Germany.
In close co-operation with neurologists, ear nose and throat doctors, orthopaedists and cardiologists, patients in the LANS Medicum can be diagnosed and treated therapeutically at an early stage.
