    Life is all about balance. Early in development, we test and train our balance to better interact with our environment.

    Rolling over turns to crawling; crawling to walking; walking to running, jumping, spinning and more. As adults, we do less of these activities, so our balance begins to change.

    Humans have a very complex system that coordinates balance and posture known as the vestibular system. It supplies our brain with information about which direction we are moving and which way is up.

    The vestibular system is one of the most highly integrated systems in the human body and shares an intimate relationship with the visual system, the proprioceptive system and the cerebellum.

    When one or more of these systems is not functioning properly, our bodies begin to function less than optimally.

    Poor function in the vestibular system and associated areas can contribute to a large number of common complaints.

    Most commonly, previous viral or bacterial infections of the inner ear, concussion, and certain medications can leave people with lingering symptoms that make day to day life challenging.

    Vestibular rehabilitation techniques can be effective in the treatment of conditions including balance issues, dizziness, vertigo, migraines, labyrinthitis, vestibular neuritis, Meniere’s disease and so much more.

    As we age we see degeneration of these systems due to disuse and other health related issues. The average person’s daily routine is also excessively sedentary.

    Slip and fall is one of the leading causes of serious injury for the elderly.

    Maintaining a healthy vestibular system and balance is important to maintaining independence and longevity. If you don’t use it, you lose it.

    Dr. Andrew Brodyn, of Landmark Family Chiropractic, is a board-certified Fellow of the American Board of Vestibular Rehabilitation.

    He is an expert at the diagnosis and treatment of vestibular related issues.

     If you suffer from any of the above conditions, please give us a call at 215-693-5488.
