This recent study conducted in Japan, tested 1400 to see if they could stand on 1-leg for up to 60 seconds.
The results were astonishing. Those who could balance themeselves the least, had Cerebral-small vessel disease (SVD) and the scary part is that they were Asymptomatic, meaning they did not show any symptoms of having a vascular disease occuring. SVD has been linked to Dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Diseases.
The 3 main systems that go into balance are your eyes, inner ear and body position awareness. These are otherwise known as vision, vestibular system and proprioception.
With every single new patient at Arizona Chiropractic Neurology Center, we test balance, the inner ear, and your oculomotor system, or vision, and determine how well it is functioning. We also evaluate blood chemistry patterns and blood lab results to help determine if they are optimal, and educate you how nutrition may be able to help normalize any numbers that are in fact out of the optimal range. We urge you to consult with your physician as we help to comanage your needs.
Our main goal is to increase your ability to function better in life whether it is to be pain free, increase your balance, or to develop a new skill, we can help.
