Balance issues can be caused by many things, when the troulbe leads to falls, it is more urgent .And the source should be looked in to. Physical therapy after a hospitalization is a good start, as they can do balance and vestibular testing. A good neurological evaluation may also be prudent. See your doctor before you fall again, .
