WVU Medicine balance disorder services are a coordinated effort by physicians and therapists from several areas, including:

Conditions and Treatment

Causes of balance impairment can occur from aging, inner ear problems, previous stroke, or use of certain medications. WVU Medicine provides expert diagnosis for several dizziness issues, including:

  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (inner ear disease that causes vertigo)
  • Labyrinthitis (inflammation of part of the inner ear)
  • Meniere’s disease
  • Vestibular balance disorder

We will assess you balance condition using the latest methods and examine any eye movements that could be related to dizziness and problems with the ear or central vestibular (brain) systems. Treatments for balance disorders may combine the use of medical, surgical, or therapeutic interventions to provide the highest level of patient care. We believe in tailoring treatment plans to each patient to provide improved quality of life and functioning. Depending on your diagnosis, treatment methods may include physical therapy, balance retraining therapy, home exercises, or medications to reduce dizziness.
