Patients experiencing dizziness or vertigo symptoms can explore various diagnostic options at our Southfield, Michigan internal medicine practice.
Vertigo, often characterized by an unsettling feeling of imbalance that can persist for extended periods, can be caused by several factors. Common causes of vertigo may include issues within the ear canal, such as vestibular neuritis, or central factors affecting the vestibular nerve. It typically manifests as recurring episodes of dizziness, often triggered by head movements.
To identify the root cause of vertigo, our clinic offers diagnostic procedures like the VNG test, which comprises a series of assessments aimed at documenting an individual’s capacity to track visual cues using their eyes. Another valuable diagnostic tool is the balance test for vertigo, which aids in pinpointing the underlying factors contributing to dizziness, including the Dix Hallpike maneuver.
