Dizzy spells and feeling off-balance can be scary, especially for the elderly. Fortunately, a knowledgeable chiropractor can help with balance-related issues such as vertigo. Chiropractic care is a safe, non-invasive, natural treatment that successfully treats vertigo in people of all ages. Chiropractors can perform specific adjustments that aim to move the position of the particles in the ear canal to a position that will no longer affect the body’s equilibrium. They may employ manual adjustments that realign the cervical spine to relieve dizzy spells. Some chiropractors will recommend other treatments such as inner ear irrigation with hot or cold water, at-home balancing exercises and eye excesses. Better balance means less fear of falling and a higher quality of life.
