What Causes Our Balance To Get Worse?
Balance is dependant on what we do throughout our lives. If you are someone that is sitting in a slouched position or cross-legged on the couch then this can cause changes to our posture. Also injuries that involve muscles or joints can have a long-term effect on balance as changes to both gait and posture will limit the amount of strength and energy the body has to exert and focus pressure in a single spot.
Other Conditons That Can Affect Balance
- Eye disorders
- Ear disorders
- Anxiety and stress
- High or low blood pressure
Be sure to keep in check with your GP for any medical related concerns involving medications/cardiovascular disorders.
How Can Chiropractors Help?
Chiropractors aim to make changes to the musculoskeletal system which effects both or mobility and flexibility. By doing so our balance can improve and this is because our muscles tighten up and limit our ability to control them.
What Techniques Will Chiropractors Use?
Be aware that care is always dependant on the patients presentation on the day and other abnormalities or risks presented at the time of treatment.
