Balance Problems

Balance Problems - Balance is controlled by the brain utilizing three different sensory systems. The first is your vision. Simply put what you are looking at gives your brain information about where you are in space. Second is your vestibular system. This is composed of small organs in your inner ear that are stimulated with head movement, acceleration/deceleration, and a change in position. They also help you stabilize your vision when you move your head (Vestibulo ocular Reflex). The third system is called your proprioception. This system involves the sensation in your limbs (especially the feet). They sense changes in pressure such as moving forward on your toes or back on your heels. In normal healthy individuals the brain seamlessly integrates information from all three systems allowing us to move and maintain our balance without having to think about it or even without knowing it.
