When a child complains about words “swimming” on the page of a book or feeling dizzy when they stand up or walk down the stairs, it could be a vestibular problem happening deep within the inner ear. Traditionally these vestibular and balance disorders have been a challenge to diagnose. Until now. New testing equipment can help pinpoint the problem and help therapists customize treatment for the patient. Having audiology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, sports medicine, rehabilitation medicine and otolaryngology (ENT) all under one roof, communicating with each other, makes for a unique program found at very few hospitals in the United States. Improving outcomes is the goal, and Children’s of Alabama’s team approach to vestibular and balance disorders can do just that.
