Far from being obscure topics, balance and dizziness problems are huge issues for society and intimately related to our practice as chiropractors.
The relation between the cervical spine and the vestibular system in the brain are integral to our patient’s ability to move through life. Dysfunction in this system can lead to premature death and drastically reduced quality of life.
In all age groups falls are a major cause of death, even more so in the elderly. As chiropractors we are perfectly placed to assess and treat these problems enhancing our patient’s quantity, and quality, of life. In this seminar series, we will be covering the major topics in brain health and how to integrate treatment options for these into your practice.
This first seminar, covering dizziness, whiplash and cervical spine problems gives the perfect basis to introduce the vestibular system, which is considered by many to be the best place to begin exploring brain function.
