Vestibular disorders are caused by damage to the vestibular system. The vestibular system is intimately integrated with our central and peripheral nervous systems and interacts closely with other functions of the body including balance, vision, hearing, and spatial comprehension.
There are several ways to cause damage to the components of the vestibular system, including inner ear problems, stroke, head trauma, or viral and bacterial infections.
Common symptoms of vestibular disorders
- Dizziness and vertigo
- Imbalance and spatial disorientation
- Visual disturbances
- Hearing changes or loss of hearing
- Cognitive and psychological changes
