Balance Disorders: An Overview

Most people don’t spend a lot of time thinking about their ability to stay upright and balanced. Somehow, they just can. But the fact is, our balance relies on an intricate interchange between various systems in the body, the inner ear, and the brain. When balance disorders occur, they can be both frightening and extremely disruptive to people’s lives. Fortunately, proper testing can help identify the underlying cause of balance problems. And increasingly, treatments are available to help people better manage their symptoms.
