Vestibular and Balance Laboratory

 

​​Overview

The Vestibular and Balance Laboratory serves two primary goals:

  • To provide clinical services in the assessment of balance and dizziness
  • To conduct research in vestibular physiology in both health and pathology

Clinically, the Vestibular Lab sees patients of all ages with complaint of imbalance and/or dizziness. We provide comprehensive balance a​nd vestibular evaluations, vestibular rehabilitation and fall prevention. The primary goal of the research program is to understand the underlying physiology of the vestibular system in health and disease and relate this to improving diagnostic testing and treatment.

Specific Areas of Research:

  • Improving pediatric vestibular assessment and rehabilitation
  • Improving VEMP test performance in specific patient populations
  • Collaboration with the Vestibular Genetics Lab in understanding the molecular cause of BPPV to improve treatment methods
