Balance is something most of us take for granted and is naturally hardwired into our anatomy, adapting as we grow and not something we often think about. Imagine frequently having a disorientated feeling, regularly being out of balance and more than just the sometimes-scary feeling when we momentarily lose it, take a wrong step, or get motion sickness or nausea.
While basic balance is intrinsic, some of us can perfect and master our balance through exercise and practice and for others, is it vestibular.
Vestibular is a system relating to parts of the inner ear and brain that help control balance and eye movements. Diagnoses can be difficult, and the severity of vestibular disorder can vary, with symptoms that fall under any one or more of the following: vertigo and dizziness, balance and spatial orientation, vision, hearing and physical sickness or psychological differences. It can be genetic and environmental factors, but it may also be caused and more temporary when from the result of an injury or viral infection.
This September participate in Balance Awareness Week, from 13th September to increase the awareness about vestibular disorder.
