Dissiness is a symptom, not a diagnosis and it is a termoften used to describe two different symptoms: lightheadedness and vertigo. Light-headedness is a feeling like you might faint. Vertigo is a feeling that you are spinning or moving, or that the the world is spinning around you. Common causes of dizziness include Benign Paratysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), Meniere's Syndrome, vestibular migraine, and vestibular nevritis. Our goal is to diagnose the underlying cause of the dizziness and institute a proper treatment through a team based approach.
The Dizziness and Balance Clinic is offered at the SLUCare Doctors Office Building and provides testing and assessment of balance problems. Treatments with the Epley Omniax device are available at our Mercy clinic. Watch a video about the Epley Omniax device.
Services available through the clinic include vestibular testing, evaluating ear-related causes of dizziness, and physical therapy.
We use state-of-the-art diagnostic balance labs to more accurately diagnose our patients, enabling us to develop effective rehabilitation programs. A team based approach is used for the treatment of complex dizziness. Sarah Keenan, NP has particular expertise in vestibular migraine.
