    Vertebral compression fractures associated with osteoporosis occur with increasing frequency as skeletal mass and bone strength diminish with the aging process (1). These fractures generally involve collapse and compression of the vertebral body, associated with a wedge deformity, which may lead to kyphotic angulation of the spine (2). In the United States alone, it is estimated that one-quarter of white postmenopausal women are affected by fractures of the vertebrae (3), and among persons 65 years of age or older, vertebral fractures account for 150,000 hospital admissions in the United States annually (4).

Almost any medical condition can cause dizziness, but the most common include benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, transient drops in blood pressure, migraine, and anxiety. Inner ear disorders that cause dizziness are often associated with abnormal eye movements?in fact, it’s possible to diagnose an acute inner ear infection in five seconds, just by looking at a person’s eyes. In Dizziness, Drs. Gregory T. Whitman and Robert W. Baloh explore the different conditions that can cause dizziness, describe the types of dizziness they see most frequently, and explain what people with dizziness can do to feel better.
