Balance

Your balance system is vital for normal every day activities. Balance problems can cause profound disruptions in your daily life and increase the risk of falls. A compromised balance system can shorten your attention span, disrupt normal sleep patterns, and/or cause excessive stress and fatigue.

Your Balance System

Comes from 3 systems working together :

  • Visual system
  • Sensors in your joints and muscles
  • Vestibular system located in your inner ear

When balance is normal all three systems are perfectly matched. If one or more of these systems are compromised, conflicting information sent to the brain may make you feel dizzy and / or unbalanced.

Balance Problems

There are many different types of balance problems with a large range of possible causes. It often requires a variety of health professional to work together to determine the source of the problem and subsequent treatment options.

Audiological Testing

At the Tasmanian Centre for Hearing, Audiologists can conduct a variety of tests to determine whether the vestibular system located in your inner ear is the cause of your balance problem.
