Balance control is a complex motor skill, which involves the integration of many types of sensory information (sight, vestibular system and proprioception). Postural control can be modified by sensory input alterations consequent to a pathology: vision loss (retinopathy, macular degeneration), vestibular disorders (labyrinthitis, schwannoma), peripheral neuropathy (diabetes), and chronic ankle instability consequent to ankle sprains. On the other hand, specific sports training can improve balance control through an improved multisensory integration (e.g. in dancers, in football players or in volleyball players).
