Many people seek chiropractic care for low back, mid back or neck pain, but where can they turn to for balance and/or dizziness problems?
When considering treatment for balance, we must consider the “Proprioceptive System.” The body communicates between its parts through proprioceptors, located in the muscles and the joints, that relay information to the brain. This information from the various body parts is then integrated with incoming information from the vestibular system (inner ear). The brain also relies heavily on the cerebellum, located in the back of the head, which is largely responsible for coordination the unconscious (automatic) aspects of proprioception. The ability to maintain balance is dependent on all three of these systems working properly.
John G visited the Holistic Center at Bristol Square office complaining of dizziness and loss of balance. This started after he had Covid and he had been sneezing and coughing. He had been to his primary care physician who told him his issues can happen after a virus like Covid and would resolve on its own. After suffering for over two weeks with these symptoms John decided on a second opinion at the Holistic Center. Upon his exam, it was discovered that John had benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), and needed treatment. After being put on a regimen of chiropractic adjustments, supplements and specific exercises, the dizziness and loss of balance started to resolve.
