Health & Wellness

Permitting natural healing and symptom expression does not men ignoring an ill person. People must remain hydrated, nourished, comforted and properly managed. However, in our mad dash to protect people from expressing symptoms we should pause to consider that suppression of symptoms is not healthy.

Symptoms are the way the body heals. By suppressing the acute disease symptoms we may be causing deeper, more serious illness later on. When symptoms are permitted to express and release naturally, the body heals faster and the “health crisis” leaves a healthier, cleaner, stronger person in its wake. True health is when the body is able to heal and express itself naturally. By receiving consistent chiropractic care, systems such as the immune system, nervous system, muscular system, skeletal system, circulatory system, lymphatic system, respiratory system, endocrine system, reproductive system, and digestive system is able to function without interference.

Family & Kids Chiropractic

Chiropractic care is effective for both parents and kids. Colic, unexplained crying, poor appetite, breathing problems, and allergic reaction can often be traced to nervous system dysfunction caused by a malfunction spine.

If neglected, the bumps and falls during rapid growth of a child may lead to serious spinal deformities later in life. This can set the stage for scoliosis, “growing pains” and a weakened immune system response. Chiropractic adjustments are modified to fit a child’s size, weight, and unique spinal problem. Many spinal problems seen in adults begin in childhood. Proper spinal hygiene is an important key to better health

Sport Injuries and Prevention

Spinal injuries can restrict range of motion, reduce strength, slow reflexes, shorten endurance, and decrease performance. Chiropractic care for these types of injuries has become increasingly popular. Professional sports teams, Olympic trainers, and competitive athletes are employing chiropractors – because they demand results.

Chiropractic care helps restore function to the spinal joints that are fixated and not moving properly. Besides helping to relieve pain, chiropractic care can also help reduce inflammation. Muscles, tendons and ligaments depend upon proper joint movement for peak performance. Injuries to these tissues can reduce range of motion, decrease blood supply, and literally “take you out of the game.” Normalizing spinal function helps speed the healing of these soft tissues and reduce the deconditioning effect of being on the sidelines. Whether you play golf, tennis, bicycle, football, softball or bowl, the best treatment for sports injuries is prevention!

Prenatal Chiropractic Care

A large percent of all pregnant women experience back discomfort/pain during pregnancy. This is due to the rapid growth of the baby and interferences to your body’s normal structural adaptations to that growth. Chiropractic care through pregnancy can relieve and even prevent the common discomforts experienced in pregnancy.

As your baby develops, your uterus enlarges to accommodate the rapid growth. When the pelvis is in a balanced state, the ligaments connected to the uterus maintain an equalized, supportive suspension. If your pelvis is out of balance in any way, these ligaments may become torqued and twisted, and create an uneven pull on the uterus. This uterine tension may restrict the baby’s movement and hamper eventual optimal positioning. Any compromised position for the baby throughout pregnancy will affect his or her development. Conditions such as torticollis occur because a baby’s space was craped in utero.
Dystocia is defined as difficult labor and is something every woman wants to avoid. In addition to the pain and exhaustion caused by a long, difficult labor, dystocia lead to multiple medical interventions which may be physically and emotionally traumatic to both you and your baby. Some of these interventions are the administering of Pitocin, the use of epidurals, painful episiotomies, forceful pulling on the baby’s fragile spine, vacuum extraction, forceps and perhaps even c-sections. Each of these procedures carries a high risk of injury to you, your baby or both! Reviewing the obstetric texts revels that the commonly reported reasons for dystocia are inhibited nerve function, pelvic imbalance and the baby’s position.

Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy may restore nerve function to your uterus, balance to your pelvic muscles and ligaments, and potentially lead to a safer and easier delivery for you and your baby.
