Very few things can affect someone’s quality of life more than balance disorders. Having vertigo or a loss of balance can make you feel woozy, nauseated, fatigued, and sick. Activities like going up and down steps, standing in open spaces, getting out of bed, or even just walking become significant events when you are afraid that you are going to fall or spin out of control. Any problems related to balance indicate a problem in something called your vestibular system.
There are many different disorders that can make you feel dizzy or off balance. While there are medications that can help with nausea and vomiting, medications are usually not effective in restoring balance. Most people with balance disorders may go through a regiment of physical therapy called vestibular rehabilitation or receive treatments like caloric irrigation.
Many of these treatment regiments will work for most people, but there are large numbers of patients that may fail to respond to treatment or desire more improvement than those strategies may be able to deliver.
