90 million Americans will experience dizziness or balance problems sometime in their lives. According to the National Institutes of Health, dizziness and balance problems constitute a national health care crisis. For the 78 million baby boomers, this is a special problem, as dizziness is the number one complaint for people over age 65. In fact, 50% of all accidental deaths of people over 65 years of age are due to balance related falls. But dizziness is common for all age groups and is the third most common complaint told to physicians only following headache and lower back pain.
As an AIB Affiliate, our audiologists and physical therapists are trained and certified in vestibular rehabilitation.
