    Understanding Balance
    Disorders and the Role
    of Auditory Therapy

    Balance disorders are prevalent among adults, causing discomfort and a significant impact on daily life. These disorders arise from issues within the vestibular system—a complex system comprising the inner ear, vestibular nerve, brain stem, and cerebellum.

    This system is crucial for managing perception, coordination, motor control, and balance. When the vestibular system malfunctions, it leads to unequal impulses received by the brain, resulting in a sense of imbalance.

    The Benefits of
    Auditory Therapy

    Auditory Therapy, also known as Sound Therapy, is a revolutionary approach used at Broadview Spine & Health Centre to address these balance issues. By targeting the mechanisms in the inner ear, Auditory Therapy can restore the vestibular system’s proper function, helping patients regain a sense of balance and coordination. Combined with visual therapies, Auditory Therapy can be an effective tool in overcoming the discomfort and limitations caused by vestibular disorders.

    How Auditory
    Therapy Works

    Auditory Therapy works by influencing the inner ear’s mechanisms, specifically the cochlea and vestibule. These structures send signals to the brain that help maintain our spatial awareness and balance. When these signals are disrupted, it can lead to balance disorders. Through targeted auditory stimuli, we can help recalibrate these signals, aiding in the restoration of balance and reducing symptoms of dizziness and vertigo.

    Common Balance
    Issues Addressed
    by Auditory Therapy

    Auditory Therapy can treat a wide range of balance disorders, including:

    Vertigo is the sensation that you or your surroundings are moving and spinning. Vertigo ranges from barely noticeable to severe and overwhelming. Vertigo attacks can also last for several seconds to much longer, even several days.

    Ear dizziness is a form of dizziness caused by issues in the inner ear.

    Central vertigo is a condition where an individual experiences hallucinations of motion of their surroundings or a sensation of spinning while remaining still.

    Dizziness can be a sign of problems with your blood circulation. Insufficient circulation can lead to lightheadedness and dizziness.

    Hemorrhages or small strokes can cause varying degrees of dizziness in individuals.

    If you are experiencing balance issues related to conditions listed above, contact us today.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Your brain’s balance system is connected to the inner ear where it receives impulses to detect whether or not you are balanced in your surroundings. If your ears are not functioning properly, your brain will detect a sense of being off-balance since it is reading the impulses as not being equal.
