Dizziness and balance troubles are impactful problems that affect millions daily. It is the number one complaint of patients over the age of 70. As people age, they become more prone to balance difficulties and dizziness; however, distinguishing general dizziness from true vertigo and central symptoms, such as early stroke, can be quite challenging. Join us for a lively discussion of the types of dizziness and balance disorders, how we identify the causes, and review a variety of treatments.
