Two common issues dealt with by chiropractic patients are balance and dizziness. Balance and dizziness problems are often connected with subluxations, which appear when a vertebrae becomes misaligned or moves out of its normal position. Subluxations can be caused by a wide range of issues ranging from a minor slip or bump to a car accident or any sudden trauma. It can even be suffered following any neurological issues or musculoskeletal problems.
When a vertebrae is subluxated, it begins to put pressure on nerves, blood vessels and everything around it. This pressure comes with a price. The subluxation interrupts the natural pathways that the messages sent from the brain need to be clear in order to be completed properly. Therefore, it can then cause severe balance and dizziness dysfunction, but it can be corrected effectively through chiropractic care.
As time goes by and a subluxation remains untreated, the spine and surrounding features such as discs can begin to degenerate. This degeneration becomes more difficult to reverse as time goes by as the surrounding muscles, nerves and bones begin to adjust to the new shape. The longer this goes on, the more difficult it is and the longer it takes to get back to near perfect position. Allowing a chiropractor to get you back on track both chemically and structurally will bring your body back to the proper state it should be in to perform at its peak.
