What is a balance disorder?
A balance disorder is a condition that makes you feel unsteady or dizzy. Often, if you are lying down, sitting or being still, it may feel as though you or the area around you is moving. If you are walking, it may feel as though you will tip over.
How is a balance disorder diagnosed and treated?
A qualified, licensed physical therapist can perform a thorough evaluation of your balance disorder by observing your posture and movement. By comparing the results of your evaluation testing with established norms, your therapist will determine the strengths and weaknesses of your individual balance system. Your therapist will work with you to develop a treatment plan and exercises for you to perform at home.
