Aging

BALANCE PART #3- What Can I do About My Balance

1.Therapy can often dislodge the tiny crystals that can form in the ear canal and cause dizziness.
2.Exercises for the head, eyes and body can also decrease dizziness and the nausea that often accompanies it
3.If the balance issue is found to have been a side effect of your medication, a change in those medications will often help the problem
