Chiropractic Care for All Ages

Chiropractic care focuses on restoring and maintaining the health of the body's nervous system. When your nervous system is optimized and functioning properly, it enables the body's powerful healing and restorative systems to thrive.

Interference in your nervous system causes pain and dysfunction in the way your body works. This interference is known as subluxation or misalignment. Muscles, bones and joints may become injured and misaligned resulting in nerves being irritated, pinched, or compressed, causing interference in the nervous system. This can lead to a variety of symptoms including pain. Thru chiropractic adjustments, we remove spinal misalignments and restore the function of the nervous system and allow the innate or natural healing mechanisms of the human body to take over. Chiropractic care is useful and effective for people of all ages and stages of life.

Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

Chiropractic care can play an important role during pregnancy. Potential benefits of our chiropractic care during pregnancy include: Maximizing health during pregnancy, controlling symptoms of nausea, reducing the length of labor and delivery, relieving neck, back and joint pain and prevention of potential cesarean section.

The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association recommends that women receive chiropractic care throughout pregnancy to establish pelvic balance and optimize the room a baby has for development throughout the pregnancy. With a balanced pelvis, babies have a greater chance of moving into the correct position for birth, and the crisis and worry associated with breech and posterior presentations may be avoided altogether. Optimal baby positioning at the time of birth also eliminates the potential for dystocia (difficult labor) and therefore results in easier and safer deliveries for both the mother and baby.

Infants and Babies

Forcing, pulling and twisting a baby during birth are very common procedures and can cause subluxation in newborns. When there is interference with nerve signals, an infant’s health may be impaired from his or her first breath and problems can begin immediately or appear years later. We recommended examinations on infants and babies to check for these misalignments and perform very gentle adjustments to optimum your baby’s Health.

Common ailments where chiropractic care may benefit babies include symptoms of colic, problems sleeping, constipation and difficulties with feeding. If your baby is experiencing these conditions or is overly fussy and seems uncomfortable, please contact us, we can help.

Toddlers and Youths

Toddlers and youths are constantly encountering and experiencing situations where they may misalign there developing spines. As a toddler learns how to walk and gain their coordination, they are routinely falling, fumbling and placing stress on their body (It is estimated that before the age of 7, a child will fall approximately 2,500 times). As a toddler matures into a youth, their activities become even more intense and so do the potential to misalign these active spines.

Regular chiropractic check-ups are an important part of the preventive care needed in these high developmental years. We regularly treat children and help parents teach children about the benefits of exercise, nutrition, health and removing subluxation through chiropractic care. Chiropractic care can provide solutions for some common conditions found in children during these years including, but not limited to: Chronic asthma, allergies, chronic colds, ear infections, ADD, Constipation and chronic bed wetting.

These are the years associated with intense sports activities and sometimes year-round training for both boys and girls subjecting them to all types of situations that may lead to subluxations and injuries.

Many kids suffer back pain and posture problems from carrying around backpacks filled with heavy books and hours on phones and computers.
