Dizziness, balance issues affect 5% of US children

February 1, 2016

More than 5% of children and adolescents in the United States experienced issues related to dizziness and balance within the past year, according to research in the Journal of Pediatrics.

“Our findings are consistent with the limited prevalence data in other countries, and provide much-needed baseline estimates of dizziness and balance problems in U.S. children,” Howard J. Hoffman, MA, director of epidemiology and statistics at the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communications Disorders, said in a press release. “Dizziness and balance problems in children continue to be an understudied area, and we hope that this analysis leads to a better understanding of the scope and risk factors associated with these issues.”
