Balance/Dizziness FAQ

How Can I Get Properly Diagnosed?

In order to effectively reactivate parts of the brain to help with health concerns, a proper diagnosis is crucial, and we use a multi-specialty approach that includes medical, chiropractic and physical therapy providers.

Any assessment needs to determine the specific communication pathways in the brain that are affected. Our team has specialized training in chiropractic neurology, nutrition, blood chemistry and metabolic health which means that we are able to give you a qualified diagnosis for your condition.

What Causes Dizziness and Balance Issues?

The causes of dizziness and balance issues fall into one of two categories fuel delivery and neurologic dysfunction:

FUEL DELIVERY:

Some patients have a problem with the fuel or nutrients that they are providing their bodies. We assess the fuel delivery in each patient by looking at their diet and providing key nutritional supplements to ensure that their brain gets a steady stream of glucose. When we examine these fuel issues, we also look for things like nutritional deficiencies, inflammation, food sensitivities, heavy metal sensitivities and poor oxygenation.

NEUROLOGIC DYSFUNCTION:

A problem can occur in the neurologic wiring of an important system in the body called the vestibular system. When we examine issues within the vestibular system we look at these four areas:

  1. Inner ears
  2. Eyes
  3. Information from our joints and spine (proprioception)
  4. Central processor (cerebellum)

If there is a lack of integration or miscommunication between any of these four areas, balance and dizziness issues will likely occur.

Who Suffers from Dizziness and Balance Issues?

Some people have the misconception that only the elderly can suffer from dizziness/balance issues, but we treat patients of all ages.

When it comes to children, we treat many for balance disorders, especially those who suffer from ADD/ADHD. Many of these children are not aware of their balance deficits until we begin to work with them on these issues.
