Can Chiropractic Care Help Treat Vertigo and Improve Your Balance and Coordination?
Vertigo is a condition that you have the sensation that you are moving or you’re your surroundings are spinning. There are different categories and causes of vertigo, but they are usually issues with the brain or inner ear.
Vertigo can be treated with medications, but for those seeking natural treatment options, chiropractic may be the solution. Chiropractic manipulations that return the upper cervical spine to proper alignment may reposition the neck back to an optimal position, putting a stop to dizziness. There is also a special technique that can be performed when the inner ear is involved.
There are other adjustments that can specifically help with equilibrium along with at-home balancing exercises and eye exercises.
Along with dizziness, chiropractic care can also help improve balance and coordination. Life’s day-to-day activities move the bones, joints, and muscles out of alignment. Chiropractic care restores the proper alignment of the musculoskeletal system. This helps restore the system to proper balance, which is an important part of improving balance and coordination. When the body is properly aligned and the nervous system is able to communicate efficiently and effectively, it can help address improper signals the brain is experiencing during vertigo episodes. Lifestyle advice in regard to diet, posture, and specific exercises can also be beneficial.
