Improve Your Balance with Chiropractic

Published September 14th, 2021 by Dr. Markson

In general, people place a greater emphasis on keeping strong and fit than on maintaining balance and coordination, but the latter can enable a person to complete everyday tasks that we take for granted. Balance plays a significant role in our overall health. Check out how to improve your balance and coordination through chiropractic care.

Balance issues

Problems in balance and coordination can appear in many forms, such as a spinning sensation, trouble walking in straight lines, lightheadedness, the feeling of fainting, and/or lack of coordination. These factors can be problematic when driving or at work. Chiropractic care is commonly known to treat pain in the back and neck, headaches, and injured muscles, but it can do so much more. Another benefit of an optimially functioning nervous system is improved balance and coordination.

How Bodies Remain Balanced

By absorbing data from the world around you, your eyes and ears build a map of your body's location at all times by sending the resulting information to your brain. To help you resist gravity, your brain combines all this information. These responses happen more quickly than you realize, and most of the time, you react and move without fully realizing it. Aside from the eyes and ears, the entire body plays a role in coordination and balance. Your nervous system communicates with your body to get the appropriate response. When you perform an action like staying upright or sitting up, your body structure must be aligned so it moves properly. A misalignment in these systems can alter balance and coordination.

Balance Can Be Achieved and Maintained Through Chiropractic Care

Bringing the musculoskeletal system back into proper alignment is how chiropractors help improve balance and coordination. Chiropractic adjustments restore proper alignment to the spine. Adjustments not only correct your body's imbalance but also improve the function of your nervous system.
