The loss of equilibrium or balance, is a feeling that most everyone has experienced at some point in their lives.
Dizziness can manifest in many ways, It may present as a true spinning, called vertigo, or a sense of swaying, light headedness, floating, or imbalance. Thankfully, it is a usually a short lived phenomenon. However, many people, especially as we “mature,” have prolonged or recurrent episodes of dizziness that significantly impact their lives.
Dizziness can have multiple causes. It can be due to an inner ear problem, a brain problem, a spine problem, an eye problem, or problems with our lower extremities. As a result, determining the cause of one’s dizziness can be difficult.
