What Are Treatment Options for Dysautonomia?

When exploring a more traditional route of treatment it is most common for a patient to seek specialists in the area of their greatest complaint. For example, if someone is having bad headaches, they will likely be recommended to see a neurologist, if someone is having terrible diarrhea they will likely end up at their gastro-enterologist’s office. If someone is having issues with heart palpitations and blood pressure such as most dysautonomia patients, they will likely also see their cardiologist.

Unlike the traditional route, at Balance Chiropractic in Colorado Springs, our doctors take a comprehensive approach to health and focus their attention towards your bodies foundation aka – the upper bones of the neck. If these upper bones shift due to whiplash, concussions, birth trauma, or other accidents and injuries, it can cause compression of vital portions of the neck that act as valuable relay systems for your autonomic nervous system. Instead of cracking and twisting the spine based of pain or stuck joints, the doctors at Balance Chiropractic aim to create a customized correction for each patient based off their unique misalignment and individual spinal anatomy.

We create a personalized correction plan based off your initial measurements and then reperform those measurements as we go through a correctional process to make sure we are getting objective and reproducible results. Correcting the shift of these upper bones can allow for proper communication between the autonomic nervous system and the rest of the body.
