Chiropractic Care Has Been Helping Families for Years

Chiropractic care has been helping families for years. Many patients view their chiropractic doctor as their family doctor. That’s smart. The cost of surgery is rising. The adverse reactions to drugs receive front-page news. Families want safe and natural solutions. More and more are choosing chiropractic care first.

Family care can start from the very beginning. Babies can benefit when their pregnant mothers receive chiropractic care. With weight gain and hormonal changes, many mothers seek chiropractic care. They often report easier births. Newborns, infants and children can benefit, too. The birth process may be the cause of our first subluxation! Then learning to walk, ride a bike or play sports can produce so-called growing pains. Ignored, these problems may worsen until they can become more difficult to correct as an adult.

Car accidents, work injuries, and the stress and strains of our busy lives can produce subluxations. Periodic chiropractic checkups can be helpful. Many patients report more energy, vitality and better overall health. Seniors enjoying an active retirement stop by our office, too. Safe and natural chiropractic of the spine can affect the nervous system and how their bodies work.

Regardless of your age or condition, a better working spine is good for your health. Share your chiropractic experience with others, starting with those you love.

Why Do Newborns Get Chiropractic Adjustments?

Even today's natural childbirth methods can affect an infant's spine. Preliminary studies suggest that colic, unusual crying, poor appetite, ear infections or erratic sleeping habits can be signs of spinal distress. Relax. Newborns adjustments are gentle. As a rule, no more pressure than you'd use to test the ripeness of a tomato is involved.

Can Patients With Osteoporosis Get Chiropractic Care?

Of course. Regardless of your age, size or condition, chiropractic care can be helpful. The specific needs of each patient are considered. If yours is not a chiropractic case, we'll refer you to the appropriate specialist.

Can I Get Chiropractic Care If I've Had Back Surgery?

Yes. Your chiropractic doctor will avoid areas of your spine surgically modified. However, surgery often causes instability above or below the involved level. These "reactions" will be the focus of your chiropractic care.
