Dizziness Associated With Concussions And Traumatic Brain Injuries
Topple Diagnostics is an innovative diagnostic services company offering comprehensive vestibular testing for personal injury patients. Topple's platform for dizziness and imbalance was established to provide the most accurate diagnostic information available for testing and managing patients reporting dizziness and/or imbalance. Our program evaluates the auditory and vestibular systems, as well as associated central nervous system and balance
components to provide a comprehensive understanding of the status of the dizzy/imbalanced
patient. Our testing assists in confirming central and/or peripheral involvement that can be due
to head injury, TBI, concussion or cervical trauma.

Usual questions from our patients
How is testing performed?
We utilize a myriad of diagnostic tools to access the patients vestibular system and its functionality post-accident. These diagnostic technologies are used as part of comprehensive testing platform and include, but are not limited too: Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potentials (VEMP), Videonystagmography (VNG), Active Head Rotation (AHR), Neuro Latency Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR), and the modified Clinical Test of Sensory Interaction on Balance (CTSIB). All together these tests take about 60-90 minutes to perform and are minimally invasive for patients.

Topple is a "fee for services" company. You maintain control of cash flow. Whether you are self-funded or use an outside funding company, you bill for all the services performed.

Who is the ideal patient for vestibular testing?
Patients with dizziness and imbalance issues are ideal candidates for diagnostic testing. Whether as a possible result of a Head Injury, Concussion, or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), our testing will assist you in confirming central and/or peripheral involvement.
