Hearing and balance

What are balance disorders?

Physical balance is our ability to orient ourselves with our surroundings. When we are off balance, we can experience dizziness, fear of falling, staggering, tripping and hearing loss. 

For some people, the loss of balance is caused by health issues. The term "audiology" is used in reference to hearing-related balance disorders. "Vestibular" refers to the the system that helps us stay in balance.
