Diagnosing Balance Disorders Improves Treatment Outcomes for Patients Experiencing Dizziness, Vertigo
Date:8/24/2014

accule and utricle

The inner ear has two primary functions; hearing and balance. It is made up of a labyrinth of tubes that are filled with fluid encased within the temporal bone of the skull. These bony tubes also contain a set of cell membrane lined tubes. The bony tubes are filled with perilymph fluid, while the membranous labyrinth tubes are filled with endolymph or tiny hair cells that send signals to the brain.

Ultimately, a person’s equilibrium is made up of a symphony of collaboration that involves the inner ear, visual signals and sensory stimulation from the body. All three aspects must then be correctly received by the central nervous system in order to maintain a proper center of gravity. When one or more aspects of this intricate system fail for any reason, it impacts balance and movement coordination.

Temporary Balance Issues

A simple viral infection such as a cold can cause vestibular neuritis or labyrinthitis, initiating irritation of the vestibular nerve in the inner ear. This type of infection can move to the inner ear and cause irritation of the vestibular nerve resulting in a sudden attack of vertigo and sometimes nausea. Symptoms usually dissipate over the course of 1-4 days in most people, but occasionally symptoms will persist and that’s when it’s a good time to see a physician. Proper diagnosis and treatment is important, as there are many causes of dizziness and vertigo.

Other forms of inner ear disorders include:
