Dizziness & Balance Care Services, Provided by Gateway ENT in St. Louis, MO

Dizziness and Balance Care Center

Don’t be thrown off BALANCE

The treatment of dizziness is one of the more common problems we see in our practice, but it is also one of the most challenging because the feeling of dizziness can have many possible causes. Dizziness often results from a balance disorder which can develop from various medical conditions, medications, or an abnormality in the inner ear or brain. In addition to a comprehensive evaluation by your Gateway physician, patients with balance and dizzy conditions will receive a hearing evaluation by our expert Audiologists and in some instances may need to have additional balance testing. 

At Gateway ENT some of the more debilitating symptoms of dizziness and balance problems include a spinning or floating sensation, nausea, lightheadedness, and instability which can lead to an increased risk for injury.

  • Dizziness & Balance - Frequently Asked Questions

    Meniere’s Disease is a disorder of the inner ear characterized by intermittent episodes of vertigo or a spinning sensation, ear pressure, ringing in the ear and hearing loss. 

    Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo is a condition characterized by brief episodes of vertigo that occur with changes in body positions, especially head movements that require looking up or down and turning over in bed.

    Vestibular Labyrinthitis and Neuronitis is an inner ear disorder that causes dizziness or vertigo

    Atypical or vestibular migraines is a feeling of dizziness or motion sickness occurring without headache thought to arise from similar causes as traditional migraine headaches

    People who come to see us for dizziness and unsteadiness are usually feeling pretty miserable. The effects of dizziness can severely impact someone’s daily life and for those with prolonged symptoms it can lead to depression. So, we try really hard to make sure those people are seen as soon as possible and come up with a game plan to begin reducing their symptoms as quickly as possible.”
