How Spinal Alignment Affects Dizziness in Delray Beach, FL

Feeling dizzy has probably happened to everyone at one time or another. In America, 35% of adults over age 40 have been diagnosed with some sort of disorder that has the symptom of dizziness. Dizziness is known for making a person feel lightheaded, woozy, or off balance. It is not an actual disease, but a symptom of other conditions, such as:

Understanding Dizziness

The body stays in balance and upright due to the signals it gets from nerves throughout. Some of these signals come from the eyes, the ears, and a variety of other sensors that tell the brain where the body is located in its environment. If something happens to interfere with or distort these signals, dizziness is the end result.

 

Caring for Dizziness Naturally

It is important to find out what is causing the interference of these signals and then work to correct it. Since the nerves are involved, the brainstem is a good place to start because it has one of the biggest impacts on the health and proper function of the body. The atlas, or C1 vertebra, was designed to protect the brainstem. However, if it has become misaligned due to an accident or injury, it can actually exert pressure on the brainstem causing it to malfunction.

Here at Schrier Family Chiropractic, we utilize a very gentle method to realign the atlas bone. We do not pop or twist the spine, but the technique used helps the bone to move back into its original position naturally. The body then repairs the damage done to the brainstem and communication is once again restored. This is often all that is needed to see an improvement in or end to dizziness.
