Chiropractic adjustments for vertigo or dizziness

Once I suffered unexplained lightheaded and dizziness almost the entire day. I decided to visit my chiropractor who uses a combination of chiropractor manipulation and point therapy to health symptoms. When I told him my head ‘did not feel right’ and I was having dizziness last week, he told me that dizziness or lightheaded should not be taken lightly.

Stroke: Treatments to go straight to after being discharged from hospital

It is dangerous to assume that everything is alright when there is an apparent 100% recovery (patient did not lose mobility). Few people including my late dad did not had any complication from their first stroke. However the second stroke took my dad’s life and I know of few who suffered permanent paralysis. From Chinese healing systems, when the first stroke happens, blockages in certain meridian points would occur. After being discharged, it is important to go for follow up treatment to heal internally and prevent serious complication should the second stroke happen.

That is why aside from going to hospital, they would take the stroke patient for traditional Chinese treatment even though the patient seemed to have recovered 100%. I wished I had know about this earlier as my dad suffered complication from his second stroke and passed away. But what has happened has happened. I could not undo the past. All I can do is write about these things in my blog to create awareness.

My chiropractor shared with me that some people’s condition does get worse after treatment. Some people may blame the treatment for being ineffective, or the chiropractor being incompetent.  But in reality, people who are under this category may already have the pain and condition for along time before seeking treatment. Prior to the treatment, they may have been seeing conventional doctors who prescribe muscle relaxant or painkillers which suppresses the pain. So during the adjustment, the internal issues flare up to the surface but it may be wrongly assumed as the condition had gotten worse.
