Gardner Audiology Dizzy & Balance Assistance

As we age, the risk of falling becomes more prevalent. More than one in three people over the age of 65 falls each year. Dizziness and balance problems can have many potential causes. Sometimes, it can be related to the inner ear. Other potential risk factors include vision, medication, or certain diseases such as diabetes or heart disease.
