Pediatric Balance Disorders

When a child is experiencing symptoms of dizziness or vertigo, then the signals the brain is receiving from the vestibular system have been disrupted. An evaluation by a specialist is necessary to ensure the condition isn’t serious and won’t interfere with growth and development.

Common symptoms of pediatric balance disorders include:

  • Lightheadedness
  • Feeling as if you are going to faint
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Vertigo
  • Unsteadiness
