90 million Americans will experience dizziness or balance problems sometime in their lives. If you or a loved one experience difficulties caused by balance or dizziness, we recommend taking this simple and quick American Institute of Balance® Patient Self Quiz, which was created using common complaints and problems reported by patients. It is very common to hear from someone who has fallen that they saw the curb or step, but were not able to react fast enough or to keep their balance.
This is because the natural aging process may affect one—or all—of the five senses, as well as the central nervous system’s ability to interpret and react quickly to them.
With proper diagnosis and therapeutic exercises, called Balance Retraining, many older adults are able to return to a more active lifestyle. Overcoming balance and dizziness issues begins with undergoing regular hearing evaluations.
