In order for your body to remain upright and balanced, it uses three separate feedback mechanisms to send signals to your brain for interpretation. Those systems are the vestibular system (inner ear), our visual system (eyes) and our sensory system (the pressure from the ground on our feet, and the position of our joints).
Sometimes these systems don’t communicate well with each other or send inaccurate signals to the brain. That’s when our equilibrium, or balance, is affected. As simple as we’ve made it seem here, there are many complex causes to balance disorders and each requires a customized exercise program. With the help of our skilled clinicians, you can learn the necessary exercises and strategies to help improve your balance and allow you to confidently return to your regular activities.
