It is well known in scientific circles that your ability to balance is directed by specific areas of the brain BUT now research is starting to show that your ability to balance is a good predictor of future health.

According to a study published in the American Heart Associationโ€™s journal Stroke, โ€œstruggling to stand on one leg for less than 20 seconds was linked to an increased risk for stroke, small blood vessel damage in the brain, and reduced cognitive function in otherwise healthy peopleโ€.
It also concluded that โ€œthe ability to balance on one leg is an important test for brain healthโ€.

Having poor balance puts you at risk for brain disease and cognitive decline.
โ€œA study that explored the role of chiropractic for the treatment of dizziness or balance disorders through an analysis of data from the 2008 National Health Interview Surveyโ€ showed that chiropractic was highly effective in helping resolve these issues.

The odds ratio for perceiving being helped by a chiropractor was 95%.
Chiropractors, by influencing the brain via a chiropractic adjustment, help the brain to communicate more effectively and keep your body functioning the way it should.

In addition to suggesting regular chiropractic care for balance issues, this week our focus is going to be on things you can do to improve your ability to balance.
