No one enjoys feeling dizzy. Your head starts spinning, you lose your balance, and you feel like the ground beneath is unsteady. Unfortunately, it’s a feeling many people, especially those over 65, share, and it’s not always easy to say why.
Dizziness and loss of balance can be unique ailments, or they can be symptoms of vertigo which also includes the feeling that the world around you is spinning. Along with feeling dizzy, other vertigo symptoms include headaches, nausea, neck pain, and frequent swaying.
Dizziness and vertigo can be caused by recent injuries or surgery to the neck or spine, neck dysfunction, and inner ear problems being among the most common. If left untreated, they can lead to much worse ailments.
The good news is that chiropractic manipulation can provide exactly the treatment you need if you’re suffering from vertigo or dizziness.
Chiropractic care is all about healing your body from the inside out. A chiropractic adjustment properly aligns your spine, which allows your body to lie, sit, and move properly. You will feel less pain and discomfort in your entire body when your spine is aligned correctly.
Chiropractic adjustments and proper alignment also help your nervous system function properly, which can alleviate inner ear problems, a common cause of vertigo and other balance issues. A fully functioning nervous system will help correct those problems more quickly.
If you’re currently suffering from any of these symptoms, we may be able to provide the help you need. At Lakes Chiropractic & Wellness, we’ll analyze your ailments and give you a personalized care plan to get you back on your feet in no time.
If you’re not struggling with the spinning feeling that comes from dizziness or vertigo, but you do struggle to maintain your balance, chiropractic adjustments can help you just the same.
While balance issues on their own may seem small, they can quickly lead to a less independent life, relying on walkers and other aides.
Chiropractic adjustments help align your skeletal system properly, so you’re not putting too much pressure on certain bones and joints and too little on others. The adjustments also help strengthen the muscles around your skeletal system, making everyday movement easier.
Better balance means more control over your body and less fear of falling, leading to a higher quality of life.
If you’ve recently had an accident or surgery that involved your neck or back and have had bouts of dizziness or trouble with your balance, call Lakes Chiropractic & Wellness for a consultation.
