In a nutshell: Vestibular disorders are common in the general population, especially in older adults, but it is unknown whether this correlates with the numbers of older adults who fall compared with those who don’t fall. The study found that vestibular dysfunction is significantly more prevalent in fallers than in non-fallers. A greater awareness of vestibular impairments may lead to more effective management and treatments for older adults.
