Dizziness in Elderly

see also Dizziness

Disorders which most often affect balance in old age are Parkinson's Disease (degeneration of nerve centres responsible for coordinating movement), arteriosclerosis (hardening and narrowing of arteries, especially those which supply brain), Osteoarthritis (especially in hips and knees), and Cervical Spondylosis (bony growths on neck vertebrae which press on spinal cord and blood vessels to head). Treatment of underlying disorder may alleviate balance problem.
