Body balance is a complex system that is controlled by several factors, and when any one of them gets impaired, a person becomes unsteady, dizzy and prone to falls. For you to feel balanced the brain must receive information from the eyes (visual input), skin, muscles, joints and the crystals found in the ears (vestibular input). The brain analyses all this information and communicates appropriate messages to the rest of the body in order to control movement.
A physiotherapist approaches the problem of poor mobility by first establishing the cause. This means that you may have to undergo some physical tests first. He or she will then put you on a unique exercise program that will improve your reactions to situations that make you unsteady. There are also walking aids that come in handy.
