The vestibular system controls balance and alignment and plays a crucial role in a child’s development. Disease or trauma can affect the development of normal movement and motor control. An evaluation by a doctor or ENT specialist is necessary to ensure the condition isn’t serious and won’t interfere with growth and development.
