All Can Fall
Falls can happen anywhere, anytime. Falls are common among senior citizens and some even incorrectly consider them a normal part of aging. But the truth is, anyone at any age can suffer a devastating fall as a result of vestibular system dysfunction. The vestibular system lives in the inner ear and tells the brain where you are relative to your surroundings. If the vestibular system is damaged due to illness or injury, a person might experience dizziness, imbalance, disorientation, or even spinning vertigo, resulting in a fall. Whether you’re 16 or 60 years old, if you have a vestibular disorder, take precautions to prevent a fall.
