The vertigo check-up is aimed at understanding the health status of those that suffer from dizziness, tinnitus, instability or episodes of unexplained falls, in order to find the correct treatment. It is designed for people over 60, among whom these episodes are more acute, but it is also advisable for younger people with experience episodes of vertigo, even if rare.
