Dizziness (Vestibular) and Balance Rehabilitation
In the United States, almost half of the adult population reports episodes of dizziness, vertigo and balance problems to their doctors every year. Dizziness or imbalance is the second most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office, second only to back problems. People in all age groups can experience episodes of poor balance, dizziness and frequent falls.
Everyone experiences dizziness differently. For many, dizziness is a sensation of lightheadedness or faintness. Many experience dizziness as the feeling of motion, even if they are not moving. Others report a sensation of spinning, in which they are moving or their environment is spinning around them (vertigo). Nausea and anxiety also may accompany your dizziness. Dizziness can occur alongside other symptoms, such as pressure or fullness in the head or ears and ringing in the ears (tinnitus).
