Dizziness can be frightening. One may all of a sudden feel lightheaded and off balance. Sometimes the reason for dizziness is nothing to be concerned about. Other times, it can be more serious. To understand dizziness, one must understand how the body works. The body relies on messages from three major systems to keep balanced. These are:
- The Inner Ear: Contained within are fluid sensors that detect when the body is in motion and how gravity plays a part.
- The Sensory Nerves: The nerves are constantly working to relay important information to and from the brain about where the body is located in its environment.
- The Eyes: Responsible for visual clues to the brain, the eyes determine where the body is located and whether or not it is performing properly.
If one of these systems malfunctions, dizziness can be the end result. Vertigo or disequilibrium may also occur. Medical professionals often suggest temporary fixes such as medication or certain therapies. To truly cope with dizziness, though, the underlying cause must be addressed.

Natural Help for Dizziness is Available in West Des Moines, Iowa
One area that is seeing success in helping patients with dizziness is that of upper cervical chiropractic care. Here at Precision Chiropractic West, we focus on looking for a misalignment of the upper bones of the neck, in particular, the C1 and C2 vertebrae. A misalignment here can hinder the above-mentioned systems from working properly. The fluid contained in the inner ear may not be able to drain effectively, or nerve signals may be hindered from relaying proper information about the body’s position and movement.
We use a gentle method to help these bones to realign naturally. Correcting this problem often brings quick and long-lasting relief. This is due to the fact that the nervous system is no longer being compromised. Patients may even see other related health issues resolve once the spine is in proper alignment.
