VNG Defines MVA Dizziness
Having a VNG Defines MVA Dizziness. VNG stands for vesibulonystamography (are you glad you asked?)
Complaints of “wooziness” or the the world “spinning” after a car accident often means brain injury. After Accident Care offers the regions first VNG and Posturography specifically designed to study this after car related trauma.
Often because no other test can define why you are having dizziness, doctors ignore your symptoms. We know dizziness can make your life miserable. And our testing makes the reason very clear.
Our eyes, body and middle ear all send messages to our brain. Then our brain figures out what to do. Our brain sends messages to our eyes. This allows us to jump and catch a ball. Or run. Or sit with our head still watching a movie. The VNG measures the movement of your eyes with laser precision, down of 0.001 seconds…one/thousandth of a second. Physicians unversally accept this powerful tool as an objective measure of brain injury and ear injury.
Vestibular function testing confirms a greater incidence of peripheral vestibular hypofunction in dizzy service members with blast-related TBI relative to those who are asymptomatic. Additionally, oculomotor abnormalities and/or nystagmus consistent with central involvement were present in 10 of the 24 study participants tested . [24 participants sustained traumatic brain injury in Iraq or Afghanistan conflict.]

With Posturography we can measure your balance with ultimate precision. We can determine if you are at risk for a fall. And we can show you how our treatment is improving your ability balance with repeat measures.
