What is a Balance Disorder?

A balance disorder is a condition that makes you feel unsteady or dizzy, as if you are moving, spinning, or floating, even though you are standing still or lying down. Balance disorders can be caused by certain health conditions, medications, or a problem in the inner ear or brain.

Symptoms of Balance Disorders

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you might be suffering from a balance disorder:

  • Dizziness or vertigo (spinning sensation)
  • Falling or feeling as if you are going to fall
  • Lightheadedness or feeling woozy
  • Vision changes, such as blurriness
  • Confusion or disorientation
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Changes in heart rate and blood pressure
  • Fear, anxiety, or panic

These symptoms can occur suddenly and often vary in intensity. They may affect your ability to stand, walk, and maintain your balance.

Risk Factors for Balance Disorders

Understanding the risk factors can help in the early identification and management of balance disorders. Common risk factors include:

How Physical Therapy Can Help
