perhaps your proprioception needs more time to adjust to a new physical layout. I have been learning more about this idea in physio, since I did in my knee. I have to do exercises where I balance on one foot and look rapidly in different directions. it forces my body to use muscles rather than eyes to stay in position, while overall the rest of me has been slowly learning how to use a knee with a missing ligament.
I used to be a lot worse with proprioception and at one time it was quite clear that my eyes were a major player in how I positioned myself. the klenner protocol made a significant dent in my earlier, glaring problems.
these balance drills pointed up more subtle issues which made me realize why I had previously felt disoriented on ladders - look up, and there goes the frame of reference. I also noticed that the ladder problem faded with repetition. so interesting that yes, I did simply 'get used to' ladders, but it seems it would have been due to forcing my body to take a more active role in my balance overall.
I will ask my physio guy at my next appt if he thinks standing balance drills could help you too.
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
i believe a lack of CerebrialSpinalFluid flow and spinal alignment is the key. If you can read ebooks, i recommend "The Gateway to 10,000 Illnesess" by Robert Boyd DO. i also believe we need skeletal realignment, a top down approach starting with the cranial bones then jaw misalignment then if needed a UCC Dr which hopefully C1 was already realigned with cranial and jaw alignment. its taking different therapies and finding a common link, C1
i learned about everything in reverse order so i get to try all over again, ive done UCC and getting braces now so i get to try cranialsacral or biocranial last when i believe it should go, cranial, jaw, then C1 if needed
The first 4 visits, evaluation + 3 treatments, were twice a week. The last 2 treatments were once a week.civickiller wrote:thats good you felt those improvements. Most likely youll need weekly visits at first. My first visit with a Upper Cervical Chiropractor i had complete relief of all my symptoms with improved walking, not perfect but improved. My lower back pain completely gone.
