Patients with mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) often complain of balance problems. Balance is the ability to remain upright and steady with minimal postural sway, or horizontal movement of the center of gravity. Postural sway problems can indicate neurological dysfunction in sensory integration and motor coordination.
