An estimated 90 million Americans (42% of the current population) experience dizziness at least once in their lifetime. For people over 70 years of age, balance disorders and dizziness are the primary reasons for visiting a physician, and dizziness is a significant factor for falls. Falls have been estimated to be the leading cause of serious injury in persons over 65 years old and falls account for 50% of accidental deaths in the elderly. Our ENT physicians are board-certified and have specialized training in evaluating patients with dizziness, imbalance, and other vestibular problems. Teamed with our award winning Doctors of Audiology and our specialty trained Doctors of Physical Therapy, Peoria ENT offers a full team approach and can develop a treatment plan that can improve you or your loved one’s ability to function in activities of everyday living, reduce your risk of falling and, ultimately improve your quality of life.
