Vestibular DISEASE

What is vestibular disease?

The role of the vestibular system is to provide the brain with¬† information about motion, head position, and spatial orientation. The vestibular system is located in the inner ear, and information from the vestibular system is processed in the brainstem. The vestibular system consists of fluid filled canals which contain tiny hairs and small calcium crystals. When the body moves in a certain direction, the fluid movement causes displacement of the crystals or hairs. This in turn sends a signal to the brainstem about the body’s movement. Issues with the vestibular system can occur at the level of the inner ear (a peripheral problem) or in the brainstem (a central problem).
