Improve Balance and Coordination With Chiropractic

massaging neckBalance and coordination are crucial for people of all ages, particularly seniors, as maintaining balance can help them significantly reduce the risk of falls and injuries.

Moreover, older adults can have a greater ability to perform daily activities safely and maintain their independence, which is priceless. Improved balance and coordination also allow older adults to remain active and enjoy a higher quality of life.

Did you know that chiropractic care can help improve balance and coordination naturally? That’s because the nervous system, which controls everything in our body, relies on clear and unrestricted communications from the brain to every part of the body and vice versa.

Understanding the Role of the Nervous System

Every joint receptor and muscle spindle in your body sends constant feedback to your brain, facilitating balance and coordination. When these nerve communications are interfered with due to injury or repeated stress, balance and coordination can be affected.

Misalignment Issues and Their Impact

Misalignment issues, often caused by muscle spasms, can disrupt nerve communication, leading to poor coordination and balance. Certain areas of the spine, such as the Atlas and Axis vertebrae in the upper neck area, can significantly impact equilibrium when they are out of alignment.

How Chiropractic Techniques Can Help

While all chiropractic techniques aim to restore proper spine alignment, some specific procedures can target balance and coordination issues more directly. These include exercises or movements designed to address conditions like Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV).

BPPV is related to small particles (crystals) that have been displaced from their normal position in the inner ear. Dr. Stackis offers certain adjustments, often employing the Activator instrument to focus on the upper neck area and specific movements to help reposition these particles, improving balance and coordination.
