Celebrate Balance Awareness Week

September 12-18, 2016 is Balance Awareness Week!

The goal of the Vestibular Disorders Association (VEDA) for Balance Awareness Week is to “Defeat Dizziness” by reducing the time it takes to diagnose a vestibular disorder.  Find out how you can get involved at www.vestibular.org/baw.

Balance Awareness Week is a great opportunity to help raise awareness for vestibular and balance disorders and show your support for people living with chronic dizziness and imbalance.

The human balance system is complex, involving the inner ear, eyes, joints & muscles, and brain. When one part of the system is damaged by disease or injury debilitating dizziness and imbalance can result.
