Improve dizziness, vertigo and balance issues with Chiropractic

Improving dizziness and balance problems with chiropractic care is a no brainer.


Aging is a natural part of life. There are no two ways about it. We are going to get old. If we don’t, well then we have bigger problems. Or maybe we don’t have any problems at all.

For those of us that are lucky enough to get older, our chances of getting some sort of balance disorder gets greater the older we get. In fact, for those over 65 years old, approximately 30% will get some sort of balance disorder.

Now there is some more evidence that chiropractic care can help. While not a cure all for all types of dizziness or vertigo, it has been shown to help with almost every form or vertigo. There are always exceptions. We can’t be perfect I guess.

So what did the study say?

Of those that were studied, only 4.7% of them had seen a chiropractor for their disorder. Of those that saw a chiropractor they reported a
very high likelihood of improvement. In contrast, 84% of those surveyed had seen a medical doctor for their vertigo. Those that did reported a very low likelihood of improvement.

For those in the study that started to experience the balance disorder after a trauma, ca accident, or other musculoskeletal injury, they had an even greater likelihood of improvement with chiropractic care.

So what’s the moral of the story.

1. It’s not a bad idea to get checked out by our medical doctor if your worried about something serious. Occasionally it is, but most of the time it’s musculoskeletal or neurogenic in nature. Better safe than sorry though.

2. Get adjusted. It will help. The good news is that no matter what the cause, getting adjusted has no side effects or long term effects other than improving health and helping you feel better, in contrast to the typical medical “solution” of medications.

If you or someone you know is suffering from vertigo, dizziness or some other balance disorder, give us a call. We offer free consultations to help determine if we can help or not.

Keep it steady,

Dr. Craig Mortensen
