Chiropractic care for All Ages and Stages of Life

One of the most inaccurate assumptions people make about chiropractic is that it is for any certain age or condition. The truth is that chiropractic care is useful and effective for people of ALL ages and stages of life, no one is too old or too young to get an adjustment. Chiropractic care focuses on restoring and maintaining the health of the body’s nervous system. When there is interference in the nervous system, it can cause dysfunction in the body and all of its different moving parts. This dysfunction occurs when the spine is out of alignment, which puts pressure on the nervous system. This is called a “subluxation” or misalignment. These subluxations will not only affect the way the body functions, but can also cause pain due to pinched, irritated, and compressed nerves. Read More

Many of us don't really know what being truly “rested” feels like and live out our lives in a sort of “sleep debt.” While sleep requirements may vary from person to person, most healthy adults need an average of 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night to function at their best. However, according to a national pole, about 40% of Americans get less than seven hours of sleep per sleep. This means that almost HALF of us are not getting enough sleep Read More
