Dizziness is frequently caused by inner ear disorders. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is when loose crystals in the inner ear cause positional dizziness lasting seconds to minutes. An office procedure called an Epely Maneuver repositions these crystals, curing most patients. Learn more about BPPV at Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. Other balance disorders treated in our office include vestibular neuronitis, labrynthitis, and Meniere’s disease. Balance testing electronystagmogram (ENG) is available in the office for difficult-to-diagnose patients.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Dr. Rosner has presented research at the international brain injury conference on a cause of chronic dizziness called vertical heterophoria. Forty percent of brain injury patients have: hearing loss, sleep disorders such as sleep apnea and narcolepsy, or vertical heterophoria. Treating all these disorders are very important to allow the brain to heal properly.
