Physical Therapy and Balance

Dizziness and loss of balance is the #3 reason individuals over the age of 65 seek medical attention, it becomes the #1 reason over the age of 70. A deficit in any one of the three main systems that maintain balance -- visual input, vestibular input (inner ear) and postural control can cause dizziness or imbalance, which increases the risk for falls and serious injury. Many times, medical or surgical intervention will not help these patients, but very often physical therapy can be helpful in reducing or eliminating dizziness and/or imbalance.
