Dizziness is the sensation of unsteadiness and
a feeling of movement within the head. It is
experienced by people of all ages, but occurs
more often in the elderly. Proper balance
requires all the information from the
position sensors (located in the muscles,
ligaments and tendons throughout the
body), the eyes and the ears to be put
together in the brain, giving you a sense
of where you are in relation to your
environment. Recent studies show that
sensors in the neck make up the largest
proportion of the balance mechanism.
When spinal bones in the neck lose their
proper alignment and motion, the sensors
in the neck no longer work properly,
often creating dizziness.
Chiropractors are experts in the
care of the spine and nervous
system. Thousands of people
every day find relief from their
dizziness through safe, natural
chiropractic care, without the risks
of drugs or surgery.

MEMBERS of a Canberra team par-
ticipating in this year's Camp Quality
esCarpade are urging local businesses
to help donate and show their support.
Team Canberra participants Noel
Jarratt, Charlie Watt, and John
Schmitzer are hoping to raise more
than the $61,000 they raised last year
for Camp Quality in the ACT.
To do this they need help from the
business community to donate a little
or a lot.
In return the sponsorship will be
recognised with the business' logos on
the team's three cars in the esCarpade.
Mr Jarratt, Mr Watt and Mr
Schmitzer have participated in the
event together for a number of years,
along with a few other members in the
Mr Jarratt's son, Rhys, battled
Leukemia before he passed away in
"I'm a member of the Camp Quality
family," Mr Jarratt said.
"Just because he died doesn't mean
anyone else isn't suffering."
Mr Schmitzer had competed in the
esCarpade since 1999, and encouraged
Mr Jarratt to join after Rhys died.
"I had an old Holden sitting in the
garage and I heard about the es-
Carpade," Mr Schmitzer said.
"I met Noel and Rhys and we were
going to get Rhys in the car, but then
he passed away."
Mr Jarratt completed his first es-
Carpade in the year of his son's
passing and in 2007 Mr Watt joined the
He lost his father when he was
young to cancer and the disease later
claimed his brother.
"My father was treated in Sydney
because he couldn't get treatment in
Canberra," Mr Watt said.
The members agree that once one
esCarpade is completed, it is difficult
to say no to the next.
Mr Watt said it was an enormous
amount of fun, and Mr Schmitzer kept
participating because of the good
friends he had made. "They're all there
for the same cause," Mr Schmitzer
The annual event involves all-terrain
driving along dirt tracks in wacky cars
for about a week, all the while raising
money for Camp Quality and aware-
ness about the organisation.
This year 80 cars will start from
Bendigo on October 14, and will finish
in Bright on October 21.
The adventure will head through
various country towns, following the
Great Ocean Road for part of the trip
and then hitting the desert in South
Australia, before crossing the border
back into Victoria.
Better Music in Phillip sponsored
Team Canberra with a $5000 donation,
and owner Greg Soulsby said it was a
great cause that more businesses
should get behind.
