What causes difficulty with balance?
Updated: May 25
Balance is the elegant maintaining of upright position and appears simple, but is actually the result of multiple systems working together in our bodies. When vision, body awareness or the vestibular system is not functioning reliably or effectively, it will throw off all the involved systems resulting in different types of dizziness. The good news is that a physical therapist with expertise in vestibular rehabilitation can assess an individual to determine where the symptoms are coming from and to determine an appropriate treatment plan. Dr. Macklin is a vestibular rehabilitation specialist who is trained to assess the various systems involved in order to provide effective, targeted exercises to decrease dizziness and poor balance.
