Does Hearing Loss Affect Balance?

Balance problems are caused by a wide variety of issues, such as musculoskeletal problems, disease or illness, and disorders of the inner ear. But new studies suggest that hearing loss may contribute to an increased number of falls.

The reasons aren't yet clear, but if you're concerned that you or someone you care about has difficulty with hearing or balance, talk to your physician about a referral to a licensed audiologist and certified vestibular therapist. These professionals can perform thorough evaluations of hearing and balance, determine their causes, and provide options to help you improve both your hearing and balance.

Do you have trouble hearing others?

We can diagnose and treat many types of hearing loss.
