Finding the causes of dizziness and balance disorders

In all the years I’ve spent working with people suffering dizziness and balance disorders, I’ve lost count of how many times the real cause of the issue has turned out to be very different from what my clients first thought it was.

Although this can come as a shock to them, it shouldn’t really because there are many, many factors that lead to dizziness (light-headedness) or vertigo (the illusion that the world spinning around you) and it takes discipline and patience to uncover the right ones.

My decades in practice has shown that the multi-disciplinary team approach to which my Centre is committed, is the one that will achieve the best clinical outcomes for each patient; this approach requires a very detailed process of discovery so that the most efficacious therapeutic pathway can be followed.

I explain this approach and share some of the many and varies causes of dizziness and balance disorders, in this article, Why are you feeling dizzy or out of balance? Let me count the ways!

That article is one of many on this website, and it’s filed under General News.
