Statistics show that 40% or more of all adults experience dizziness severe enough to warrant reporting it to a physician, and dizziness is the second most common complaint people report to their doctors.
How We Can Help
When balance problems develop, they are accompanied by an increased risk for falls. To determine the causes - and there can be many - it's necessary to conduct a complete balance assessment utilizing the appropriate equipment and a wide array of testing modules. In some cases, accurate diagnosis will require further testing and once a diagnosis is determined, implementation of safe, effective treatments help control most conditions.
If you have experienced a recent fall, feel unsteady on their feet, have dizziness and/or have any reason to believe they might have problems with balance should ask your family physician for a referral to Avera Balance Services.
