When you exercise, you strengthen muscles and tone your body. If you want stronger legs you exercise the legs; when you want greater cardiovascular capacity, you do exercises that support it. But what happens when coordination and balance deteriorate due to either life reasons or exercise? Can exercise counteract exercise? Most likely when you begin to lose balance and general coordination the spine is the primary culprit. Spine health is incredibly important, and aside from symptoms of pain, it can be a difficult body part to self-diagnose a problem. When the spine is responsible for a lack of coordination or balance, the changes likely come on subtly and go unnoticed until severe.
Chiropractic care can help increase coordination and improve balance. The spine is responsible for transmitting messages between the body and the brain. If there are problems, including misalignment, within the spine then those messages could be delayed. The delayed messages can cause issues with coordination, and the risk for injury or the development of more severe balance/coordination issues will continue and possibly worsen without treatment.
When you seek treatment at Larson Chiropractic, your chiropractor will provide adjustments that will help to align the body; alignment will restore joint function, and restoration will only help to improve any inherent issues with balance and coordination. Your chiropractor will help to restore balances within the body; when the body’s center of gravity is off, it’s possible to not only experience issues with balance and coordination but also to experience pain and discomfort. The pains and inflammation associated with spinal misalignment are treatable.
