Appointments and Specialities

Balance disorders are frequent and may have different causes, namely disturbances in the vestibular system, located in the inner ear.

Diagnosis and treatment of vertigo and other balance disorders is part of a specific area within the otorhinolaryngology specialty.

Vertigo can be caused by different diseases and the most common are Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), Meniere’s disease, Vestibular neuritis, Dizziness Migraine or Vertigo Associated Migraine and Phobic Postural Vertigo.

At Joaquim Chaves Saúde (JCS) medical clinics, experienced specialists will prepare a detailed medical history and perform a set of tests which will allow diagnosis of the cause and deciding on appropriate treatment.

Complimentary exams for this consultation include audiological and balance study with the help of videonystagmography (vng) and dynamic computerized posturography, all available at JCS units.
