Can you identify common diseases of the ear?

A properly functioning balance system allows individuals to see clearly while moving and make automatic adjustments to keep from falling down. Balance is achieved and maintained by a complex system that includes sensory input from the eyes, proprioception (touch), and the vestibular system (motion, equilibrium, spatial orientation). Disruption of the balance system (dizziness) can be caused by many factors, some of which are associated with diseases of the ear.
