Abstract

Balance dysfunction remains a significant contributing factor for disability in the elderly. A wide variety of surgical, pharmaceutical, medical, and rehabilitation treatment options exists for these patients. The complexity of the balance system, however, often requires a thorough, multidisciplinary approach to the evaluation and successful treatment of balance impairment.
