Balance Problems: Common Symptoms and Treatment

Balance issues can be debilitating — especially in older adults. Here at NeuraPerformance Brain Center, we’ve helped numerous Denver patients find relief from the symptoms of balance problems through using our dynavision and neurofeedback technology. If you’re looking for innovative concussion treatment, vestibular rehabilitation therapy, or are looking to give yourself an advantage over your competition on the field, then improving your balance through Dynavision D2 Vision brain training is for you! Read on and contact us today for answers to your questions.


You probably already know your own symptoms — it’s why you’re reading this blog! But we want to outline it so you can better understand what is a symptom and what might not be. Signs and symptoms of balance problems include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Vertigo, or feeling like you’re spinning or moving when you’re standing still
  • Feeling lightheaded or faint
  • Feeling unsteady
  • Floating sensations or dizziness 
  • Blurry vision and confusion

What You Can Do

While we always recommend going to a doctor when experiencing balance problems or other neurological issues, there are some things you can do on your own to help mitigate feelings of dizziness or vertigo. Some tips from our brain training experts include:

  • Sit or lie down immediately until the dizziness goes away. This can prevent falling and also makes it more likely for the symptoms to pass quickly.
  • Eat a healthy diet of vegetables, fruits, and proteins.
  • Rest in a cool place and drink plenty of water, especially if your dizziness is caused by heat.
  • Use a cane, walker, or other stabilizing device, if/when needed.

As brain training experts, we believe that Dynavision and other technologies can help you find relief from your symptoms and live a happier, healthier life. Dynavision D2 is an innovative therapy and utilizes specialized exercises to help you find relief. It works well with other vestibular therapy you might be doing and can retrain the brain — and the vestibular system — resulting in the gaze and gait stabilization you need to feel more confident on your feet. 

How Neurofeedback and Dynavision Can Help

Here at NeuraPerformance Brain Center in Denver, we utilize state-of-the-art technology, like neurofeedback and dynavision, to treat brain-related symptoms, like concussions and balance problems.

Neurofeedback brain training can help treat problems with physical balance, particularly with elderly people and stroke or head injury patients. Neurofeedback is also helpful in recovering from concussions and can help in peak performance training, especially in sports where balance is important, like football.

Dynavision D2 training technology uses a large target board with touch buttons to evaluate and train visual, cognitive, and motor function, all elements that can help with balance problems. Dynavision D2 tests and improves eye-hand coordination and peripheral vision, which is a great way to treat vertigo and blurry vision.
