Stopping Dizziness in Its Tracks in Health Edge Family Spinal Care

Stopping Dizziness in Its Tracks in Health Edge Family Spinal Care

stopping-dizziness-in-its-tracks-in-health-edge-family-spinal-careHave you ever stood up too fast and felt off balance or turned your head in one direction really quickly? Did you feel dizzy or lightheaded afterward? Almost everyone has experienced something similar. You may have also had problems with balance, sensitivity to light, and visual disturbances. All of this can be blamed on a dysfunction of the vestibular system.

The vestibular system is vitally important when it comes to balance. It sends signals to the brain about where your body is located in your environment. If this system begins to malfunction and not work at its optimum, dizziness and other balance problems can ensue. This is very common. Here are some interesting facts about dizziness everyone should be familiar with:

  • One out of 3 attacks of dizziness can be linked to Meniere’s disease
  • Approximately 4 percent of those living in the US have chronic balance issues
  • Once you turn age 40, 1 in 3 of those in the US have a vestibular disorder

Coping with dizziness on a regular basis can greatly impact your life. You may not even be able to handle your simple daily tasks of bathing and preparing meals. The vestibular system is a complex balance of inner ear fluid, tiny particles to help detect your location, and a variety of other things to help you maintain your balance and remain upright. If one of these begins to not function right, major health problems can be an end result.

Helping Dizziness Through Proper Spinal Alignment

If the C1 (atlas) bone has moved out of place, it can be causing the vestibular system to not work at its best. In our Glendale, California office, we use a special method to help these bones to move back into place naturally rather than cracking the neck or spine. The method is precise and based on scientific measurements to help us get the proper alignment tailored just for you. Once done, the body can begin to heal, and your dizziness may very well become a thing of the past.
