More than one-third of people over the age of 65 struggle with some type of balance or dizziness issue. Why is this number so high? We see patients of all ages in our Portland, OR chiropractic practice, and many older folks see Accident & Wellness Chiropractic because they feel some relief with regular chiropractic adjustments. If you have dizziness or balance problems, Accident & Wellness Chiropractic might be able to help you.
Recent research suggests that neck dysfunction, such as is common with subluxations, is the possible root cause of balance and dizziness problems reported by older people. Fortunately, one possible effective way to correct this particular dysfunction is chiropractic care.
Chiropractic maybe Better for Balance
Although most seniors tend to look to their general practitioner for help with balance-related issues, a possible alternative source of improvement may be chiropractic care instead. Possible success rate soars even higher for older people who've suffered some type of trauma, neurological issue, or musculoskeletal problem as chiropractic has been sometimes proven effective in all of these circumstances.
Better balance means less fear of falling and a higher quality of life…and chiropractic may help with all of these.
If you live in or near Portland, OR and suffer from this common problem, Accident & Wellness Chiropractic may be able to help you. Give our office a call today at (503) 206-8863.
