Chiropractic Care and Balance

Balance and Chiropractic Care Scott Colasanti Windsor On Poor balance may be attributed to causes such as injury, disease, disorder (such as Meniere’s or side effects of medications), aging, blood pressure or chemical imbalance.

The vestibular system regulates our sense of balance. The system begins in the inner ear and sends signals to your brain, multiple organs, sensory systems and structures within the body.

The body’s position and balance is detected by this complex system with helps with posture, balance when in motion, and keeping visual focus when your body position changes.

If you feel any of the following you should seek medical advice to determine the cause of your imbalance.

  • Feeling of moving, although still
  • Falling or feeling that you may fall
  • Unsteadiness
  • Light-headedness, dizziness

How chiropractic can help with balance

Because the nervous system is the master control system of the entire body, and the majority of the nervous system is housed within the spine; nervous system interference may significantly affect balance. Spinal joints that are not properly aligned can result in misinformation being communicated to the brain about the body’s position and movement.

In a small study focusing on patients with neck pain, balance issues and dizziness, there was a noteworthy improvement of symptoms with regular chiropractic adjustments. [1]
