Dizziness & Balance
Balance Awareness week is September 14-20th, 2015 and September 23, 2015 is Falls Prevention Awareness Day! We at the Central Illinois Institute of Balance (CIIB) want to bring special awareness to this week for everyone including our patients and their families.
Many components can affect someone's balance. These components include inner ear issues, weakness, sensory loss, and neurologic involvement. Here at CIIB we work to find a solution to the problem to help improve your balance and symptoms. VEDA gives some facts on vestibular disorders.
Balance issues can also lead to an increase in falls. 1 in 3 Americans aged 65 and older fall every year. Here are some simple tips on how to prevent falls.
CIIB strives to make our patients stronger and give them and their families' tips on how to prevent any future falls. If you have any questions or are suffering from frequent falls or balance issues give us a call to see how we can help you.
Here are some resources about fall preventions:
