How a Chiropractor Can Help With Balance

By Emily Lindholm

Take moment to stop and think about your balance.  How balanced in your body do you feel?  How is your movement and coordination?  Many of us may take our balance and coordination for granted, but our balance and coordination both affect our daily life.  If you've ever had your balance thrown off by something, you know what I am talking about.  Shifts in our alignment, even the slightest ones, can cause imbalance.  Correcting your alignment through a chiropractor can help to bring the body back into balance and have you moving through life with a breeze again.  

The Importance of Staying Balanced in the Body

We use the balance for just about everything, from walking to going up the stairs, sitting, and carrying out basic daily tasks.  The more balanced we are, the easier and more efficient we are at moving through life.  What comes along with balance also includes better spatial awareness, moving through the world with ease.  Being balanced in our center also has us at less of a risk for injuries and falling, especially as we age.  It's better to achieve proper balance now so that you don't have to worry about it down the road.  

What Affects the Balance of the Body?

Our central nervous system plays a crucial role in keeping the body balanced by sending signals to the brain and telling the body how to operate.  The way that we move through our daily activities is affected by this communication.  Any disruption can throw us off.  Sometimes it may be obvious, and in other cases, barely noticeable.  These disruptions can include changes in:

  • Spinal alignment
  • Hip alignment
  • Leg length
  • Muscle strength

Our balance can be thrown off especially when our body starts to overcompensate in one area due to weakness in another.  Other factors that can affect our balance include:

  • Aging
  • Inner ear problems
  • Injuries

How a Chiropractor Can Help

Your body is your vehicle.  It needs proper maintenance to function at its optimal levels.  Seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis can help keep your vehicle running smoothly all the time, moving through life like a champ.  A chiropractor can make spinal adjustments that can help improve the overall alignment of your body, help you create better posture, and improve your coordination.  Chiropractic adjustments also help to calm the nervous system so that it's sending clear and concise communication to the brain.  Your first consultation with a chiropractor can be an eye-opener, as you learn more about the way your body is functioning and moving.  A chiropractor will work with you to make sure you begin back towards alignment and balance.
