The Liverpool Hearing Centre offers a thorough and holistic approach to diagnosing and treating balance disorders. Our process is designed to comprehensively address each aspect of vestibular health.
At Liverpool Hearing Centre, we pride ourselves on our meticulous and effective diagnostic approach to vestibular disorders. Each step in our process is designed to uncover the underlying causes of balance and hearing issues, ensuring precise and effective treatment plans.
Our first priority at Liverpool Hearing Centre is to rule out any audiological issues. Then we can move on to checking whether the vertigo is from a central cause or from an acute peripheral vestibulopathy
In simple terms, the main difference between a central cause of vertigo and an acute peripheral vestibulopathy lies in where the problem originates within your body.
In summary, the key distinction is that central causes involve problems within the central nervous system, while acute peripheral vestibulopathy originates in the peripheral balance system, typically within the inner ear. Central causes tend to be more complex and serious, while peripheral vestibulopathy is often more treatable and less concerning. All central causes will be referred to another specialist.
Most peripheral vestibulopathies can be treated at Liverpool Hearing Centre. We will focus on creating individualised treatment plans for each patient. This tailored approach ensures that every aspect of the patient's condition is addressed, leading to more effective management and improved outcomes.
