Balance disorders are common problems with potentially troubling effects. Because many different conditions can cause a balance disorder, doctors must first determine its origin in order to prescribe the best treatment.
The Balance Laboratory at UPMC's Center for Balance Disorders and our team of experts can help accurately diagnose and treat your balance problem.
Some common symptoms of balance disorders include:
Following your assessment at the UPMC Center for Balance Disorders, your doctor will advise which therapy is most appropriate. He or she may schedule a follow up appointment with you to see if the treatment helped.
The center will also send a letter about your diagnosis and treatment to your primary care physician, referring physician, and any other professional that you designate.
