Facts

Balance and Dizziness Testing
Falls in the age 40 and older population are epidemic in our country and are a leading cause for Emergency Room   visits.  Each year up to 33% of older adults fall, with many    resulting in serious injury.  One of the biggest reasons for this epidemic is primary care physicians do not have the training or the equipment to accurately assess the reason for a patient’s dizziness  or balance problems.

At Outcome Medical Of Georgia, we have the latest State-Of-The-Art testing technology to accurately diagnose your dizziness and balance problems and get you on a quick road to recovery.  Our testing will tell  us if it is your ear, your central nervous system or something else causing your problem.   We have a network of Physical Therapists who are certified to provide rehab for these conditions.

Dizziness and Balance Are Correctable
Balance and Dizziness problems can be corrected when properly diagnosed.  Physician referrals for the test are not required, and everything is covered by Medicare and most insurance companies.

Dizziness or Vertigo can be caused by disturbances in a particular part of the   inner-ear…the vestibular system.  This is the part of your balance system that provides your brain with information about movement with respect to the pull of gravity.  Our diagnostic system can identify if there are any problems in the vestibular system and assure the patient proper treatment.

Balance Self Test
Take the fall risk test. If you answer yes to any of these questions, you should be tested. Testing is covered by Medicare and most insurances. Best of all, the tests are performed while you are sitting comfortably for approximately 25 minutes.
