Treatment for Balance Problems

What’s your balance and dizziness like? Click here to take a test…

Balance problems can cause feelings of disorientation, vertigo and dizziness. We rely on balance in everything that we do — from walking to work to going to sleep — so lacking it can be very debilitating.

As a chiropractor with a special interest in balance, I can help those who suffer from vertigo, nausea and feeling faint with vestibular rehabilitation in Auckland.

What are Balance Problems?

Balance problems can be loosely explained as a feeling of spinning, vertigo, or dizziness. However, different people experience balance problems in different ways. Many people describe it as a feeling of:

  • Lightheadedness
  • Faintness
  • Nausea
  • Unsteadiness
  • Disorientation
  • Feeling wobbly

It’s frightening when you lose your balance, which can be a constant feeling for those whose balance systems aren’t communicating correctly.

Causes of Balance Problems

Control of your balance depends on integrating three systems: your inner ear semicircular canals, your visual system and responses from your joints and muscles.

Balance problems happen when any of these systems doesn’t work correctly - either on their own or in the way they communicate with each other. As a chiropractor with a particular interest in dizziness and vertigo, I take a functional approach to assess which parts of your nervous system and body are involved and then work out what can be done to improve it.

Here, you can learn more about the Causes of Balance Problems and common diagnoses.
