Treatment for Balance Problems
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 Bristol.
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:
- Light headedness
- Feeling wobbly
It’s frightening when you lose your balance, and this can be a constant feeling for those whose balance systems aren’t communicating properly.
Causes of Balance Problems
Control of your balance depends on the integration of three systems: your inner ear semicircular canals, your visual system and responses from your joints and muscles.
Balance problems happen when any one of these systems doesn’t work properly - either on their own, or in the way that they communicate with each other. As a chiropractor with a special 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 find out more about the Causes of Balance Problems and common diagnoses.
