Brain and Nervous System

Balance Disorders

Balance problems can stem from dizziness, light-headedness, weakness, or lack of coordination, and often can lead to falls. It's a pervasive problem but one that has not been thoroughly studied, perhaps in part because of the difficulties in determining the cause. Stanford has launched a new Balance Center, making it one of the few medical centers in the country to offer an interdisciplinary program for comprehensive testing and community outreach. A panel of experts discusses the causes and treatments for balance disorders. Speakers: Specialists from the Stanford Balance Center
