Falls can be the direct result of dizziness, balance issues or a lack of sensory input from the skin, muscles and joints. While they are the leading cause of death and disability in the senior population, falls are also the number one cause of injury across all age ranges. If you or someone you know are experiencing these symptoms, make sure they consult an expert in the evaluation and rehabilitation for balance and dizziness disorders.

Dizziness, vertigo and balance problems are some of the most common symptoms for those consulting their primary care physician. Studies estimate 10-20% of the US population have symptoms of dizziness. Unfortunately, despite how prevalent these symptoms are, only 50% of patients receive a diagnosis when they visit their doctor. And this is not because physicians don’t care. It’s because dizziness and balance problems can be caused by numerous conditions which can be challenging to diagnose without the availability of diagnostic tests which are more specific for evaluating the balance and equilibrium systems. These tests include audiometry, computerized posturography and videonystagmography.
