Do You Experience Dizziness, a Loss of Balance, Vertigo, or Motion Sickness?
Many people believe that loss of balance is a natural result of aging. In fact, fear of falling is the number one health concern of individuals in their later years.
Statistics from the National Institute of Health indicate that balance-related falls account for half of the accidental deaths in the people over 65. In addition, nearly 300,000 hip fractures and $3 billion dollars in medical expenses result from dizziness-related falls every year.
Vertigo and dizziness issues are often related to a person’s hearing health. Undergoing regular evaluations with a certified hearing care provider or audiologist can help detect these issues for early analysis and treatment of hearing-related balance and dizziness issues.
