The Inner ear - the brain's balance center

The primary role of the vestibular system is to tell the brain where the head is in space. Quite simply, the vestibular system is our internal reference telling the brain how our head is oriented – up, down, titled, etc. People with vestibular—inner ear— disorders often experience problems with balance or movement-related dizziness. These symptoms affect a person’s ability to change positions (such as lying down and getting up from a chair) or move about without imbalance and vertigo. Loss of balance and dizziness can be debilitating and contribute to a diminished quality of life.
