The brain’s balance system uses the inner ear to detect whether your surroundings are level. If they are no longer functioning properly, the brain receives impulses that are not equal, which the brain reads as distorted and it will come though as off balance.
Auditory Therapy can help ease various forms of dizziness including:
- Ear Dizziness
- Central Dizziness
- Circulation Changes
At Broadview, we use a form of sound therapy that can influence the mechanisms in the inner ear that deliver information to the brain. Combined with other visual therapies, this can be an effective tool to help restore one’s sense of balance.
How Auditory Therapy Helps
The Inner Ear contains the Cochlea and the Vestibule. It sends the brain signals and information to help create our sense of balance and spatial awareness. The brain uses information from the vestibule, as well as vision and the body’s sense of position & movement to determine its location.
When there is a problem with the balance system, it means something is affecting your ability to maintain normal balance. As there are multiple factors that can cause balance problems, how it can be treated will depend on what these causes are in each unique case.
