Chiropractic Care for Elderly

Elderly chiropractic care is extremely important for the maturing and elderly adult. As we age; spinal discs, facet joints, ligaments, muscles and other spinal tissues become weaker, less hydrated and less able to withstand normal stresses. As a result, spinal pain from degeneration/arthritis becomes more prominent and the nervous system becomes more stressed. Chiropractic care takes into consideration the nature of the aging spine and keeps adjustments safe, gentle and effective for everyone. Spinal stresses are decreased, flexibility and mobility are increased and degeneration is minimized with continued chiropractic care.

Chiropractic Care for Adults and Aging

Adults who receive care are:

  • MORE likely to exercise vigorously
  • LESS likely to be hospitalized
  • MORE likely to report a better health status
  • LESS likely to need and use prescription drugs
  • MORE likely to be active in the community

Your quality of life and health is dependent on the choices you make today. Be proactive and adopt a wellness lifestyle that will add more years to your life and more life to your years!

Chiropractic Care for Children and Adolescents

A major concern for parents is how to ensure your children have the best opportunity to express their full potential in life. The nervous system is the master control system for the body. It is responsible for the repair, growth and function of every cell, tissue and organ in the body. Misalignments can cause interference to the nervous system, even when symptoms are not present. Children become misaligned often because of falls, sporting injuries, and everyday life stressors. The chiropractic wellness lifestyle allows for a flexible and adaptable, fully functioning nervous system with a balanced diet, exercise, creativity and reduction of stress.

Chiropractic Care for Babies

The birthing process is chemically, emotionally and physically stressful for an infant; which is why it is so important to get your babies checked by a chiropractor early in life. Even with few complications during birth or a natural birthing process trauma occurs to the baby (and the mother). Even without symptoms, that doesn’t mean there are no subluxations. The earlier one gets checked by a chiropractor, the better they will fully experience life. By allowing their intelligence from within to be fully experienced they will be better prepared to face all the challenges that life has to offer. Integrating the birth process fully will ensure your newborn has the best start in life.

Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

During the time of development through pregnancy the mother should have pregnancy planning, proper nutrition, regular exercise and most importantly a clear nervous system. Chiropractic care during pregnancy has been proven to be safe, gentle, effective and beneficial for both the mother and the fetus. A study performed by the American Medical Association found that women who received regular chiropractic care during their 3rd trimester, carried and delivered with more comfort. Receiving care has shown to decrease the need for analgesics by half and decreases the average time spent in labor. Getting adjusted clears the nervous system and allows the body to fully express and integrate during this amazing experience.
