How common is dizziness? It turns out, very common. Over 90 million Americans suffer from dizziness or imbalance according to the National Institute of Health. It occurs in 1.8 percent of young adults and over 30 percent in patients over 65. Given these statistics, it is no surprise that I see a large number of patients in Long Beach and Garden City who complain of imbalance.
Many causes of dizziness are readily treatable. When you come in to see us, we will perform a comprehensive ear, nose and throat exam as well as hearing tests to assess the health of the ear. We may decide that you need specialized in depth ENT tests to further evaluate your inner ear, which houses your balance organ.
