Assessment & Diagnostic – Patient Information

The Sheffield Balance clinic is a multidisciplinary clinic for diagnosis and management of disorders of the human balance system. The human balance system operates through three peripheral sensors – the eyes, the muscle and joint senses and the ears to enable a subject to orient himself in space.

Balance problems can only be diagnosed by super specialists working together. They frequently remain under or not diagnosed leading to further difficulties. The Sheffield balance clinic is comprised of such super specialists dedicated to diagnose, assess and manage such problems in a focussed and systematic way.

A properly diagnosed balance problem with successful management eventually leads to a very favourable outcome and the Sheffield Balance Clinic is committed to provide this. We aim to deliver a one stop shop service whenever possible and our fees are charged at a package price depending on the complexity of the case and setting up rehabilitation goals.
