As the U.S. population continutes to age, with 78 million baby boomers on the horizon, increasing falls with aging and the dangers of fractures and loss of mobility and independence is of great concern. Dizziness is the number one complaint of adults over age 70. The good news is that research now clearly shows that with early evaluation and treatment, many cases of dizziness can be treated quickly and easily.
