So, what causes balance disorders and dizziness?
A sense of balance is maintained by the nervous system and the complex interaction of its parts. To better understand how dizziness balance problems and vertigo occur, it is important to understand these systems and their relationship to each other. Vestibular/Balance System: This system includes the vestibular labyrinth, an organ in the inner ear that plays a major role in balance. The vestibular system assesses the motion of the head, such as turning, or tilting and moving forwards or backwards. Visual System: This system is responsible for the body’s relationship to its surrounding space. When the eyes are unable to focus on a moving object, dizziness or unsteadiness may occur.

Problems with circulation can often lead to frequent or chronic balance issues. Somatosensory system: This system monitors the body and its relationship to the ground. Sensors on
