Why do I feel off-balance?

Did you know that a fear of falling is one of the most common fears of older folks in America? Falls can lead to greater injuries, injuries that can immobilize people and keep them from being the independent, active individuals they love to be. Much of our sense of balance occurs in our inner ear, where our vestibular system is located. The vestibular system is responsible for our sense of balance and spatial orientation. Also found in the inner ear is our hearing nerve and cochlea, comprising our auditory system, and making our hearing and sense of balance closely related.
When people are experiencing balance or dizziness issues, this typically points to an equilibrium disorder. These equilibrium disorders can usually be divided into two distinct categories:
  • A persistent loss of sure-footedness, where the person affected feels consistently unsteady
  • Acute bouts imbalance, vertigo, or dizziness that might only last for seconds or hours
