The Balance Center at the Neurosciences Institute is committed to restoring balance to our patients’ lives. We know that dizziness, vertigo and other disorders can interfere with standing, walking, driving, working and enjoying life’s activities.
Balance problems also may cause falls, resulting in fractures, head trauma and even injury-related death.
Balance difficulty may arise from:
- Inner ear (vestibular) disorders
- Low blood pressure
- Brain tumors
- Multiple sclerosis (MS)
- Brain injuries
- Parkinson’s disease
- Muscle weakness
- Nervous system disruption
- Heart conditions
- Gait disorders
- Meniere’s disease
- Postural impairments
- Visual problems
Our balance and equilibrium experts include board-certified neurologists and otolaryngologists (ear, nose and throat physicians), and vestibular-trained physical therapists. These specialists provide comprehensive balance testing and evaluation, followed by individualized balance treatment and rehabilitation.
