Can Chiropractic Care Help Me?
You Have Been in an Accident
Trauma can cause spinal misalignments in the body which can in turn distort your structure and irritate your nerves, bones, ligaments and discs. Any accident, no matter how minor, can create nerve damaging misalignments. Our chiropractors can give you a spinal check up to ensure that your spine is free from these health compromising changes and to prevent any long term damage.
You have a Sports or Work Related Injury
When a subluxation has been caused by repetitive stress or overuse at work or play, spinal nerves may be impeded. This may in turn negatively affect one’s range of motion, strength, reflexes, endurance, and, ultimately, performance in sports and athletic activities. Chiropractic care can help your body restore normal nerve function and help you get back to your peak in both play and work while avoiding future injuries.
You are in pain
Interruption of proper nerve flow, for whatever reason, can eventually lead to pain, disability, and an overall decrease in the quality of life. You don’t need to live with it. Our team can help you get to the root of the problem, set your body up to heal, and restore your health. We have on site doctors to help with pain management.
You are pregnant
The additional weight and stress on the framework of the body during pregnancy can cause pain in almost any part of the body. Because pregnant women are often reluctant to take any over the counter and prescription pain relievers, they often turn to chiropractic care to help alleviate pains associated with pregnancy. In addition, we can also offer lifestyle (especially nutrition and exercise) advice specific to the expectant mother.
You Have Young Children
Babies and children grow quickly, and their muscles, ligaments, and bones develop rapidly. A jump, tumble, or fall can jar the body, affect the spine (and possibly the nervous system), and then go undetected for years. Even simple factors, such as a heavy backpack or an ill fitting car seat, can have negative effects on a child’s health.
With these things in mind, it’s evident that babies and children have much to gain from chiropractic care. Regular spinal exams can provide corrective and preventive care for “little ones,” as well as peace of mind for the parent.
Parents of small children also have much to gain. We can offer advice regarding how to pick up and carry a child and, for postpartum mothers, an assessment of any structural changes that may have occurred during pregnancy, labor, and/or delivery.
You have a Teenager
Teenagers’ bodies are also growing at a rapid rate. This, combined with the fact that teenagers often think they are invincible, sets them up for a wide range of physical problems.
Imagine your teenager hearing from someone other than you the benefits of proper diet, exercise, posture, and other good lifestyle habits! With regular visits to your doctor of chiropractic, your teenager will have a body that is structurally and functionally sound, and head start on a life of good health.
You are over 40 years old
There are numerous physical problems associated with aging, and drugs and surgery are often prescribed to treat these problems. There is little, if any, attention paid to actually fixing these problems and little or no emphasis on preventing them.
But you need not succumb. Chiropractors understand the effects of aging and have been helping folks deal with the aches and pains associated with aging for decades. As with other patients, we diagnose the ailment, determine what’s causing it, and then choose from a variety of gentle therapeutic techniques to alleviate it.
We can also guide you through simple changes in your lifestyle (diet, exercise, stress management) that can greatly improve the quality of your life. Old habits are hard to break, but it’s never too late to start healthy habits.
You feel fine but want to optimize your health
Even if you feel as though you’re operating at 110% or better, chiropractic can help you maintain your desired level of health and fitness. You may currently have spinal irregularities that exhibit no symptoms whatsoever. However, problems may arise in the future.
Just as regular maintenance visits are recommended for your car, and regular dental cleanings and checkups are recommended for your teeth, regular chiropractic check ups can help detect and prevent spinal stress or joint disorders.
Chiropractic health care is a smart choice for most everyone, at any time. You will stay healthier longer, and the time and energy (and money!) saved due to your preventive efforts can be spent on things that are fun to do. A better quality of life awaits you.
Health Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Dysfunctions in certain parts of the body may eventually lead to symptoms in other parts or joints of the body as well. These symptoms are your body’s only way of letting you know something is wrong. Unfortunately, the absence of pain is not an indication of health. By the time pain and symptoms appear the problem may have been present for months, even years. The great news is that you can fix and prevent these types of symptoms and conditions with chiropractic care.
Benefits of chiropractic care may include any of the following:
Improved Nerve Communication in the Body
Improved Joint Motion and Coordination
Improved Physical Function and Performance
Relief from Back and Neck Pain
Relief from Leg, Knee, Foot and Ankle Pain
Relief from Arm, Wrist, Shoulders or Elbow Pain
Relief from Stress and Tension Disorders
Relief from Joint Discomfort
Relief from Bursitis
Relief from Arthritis
Relief from Chronic Injuries
With regular adjustments, chiropractic offers a host of preventative health benefits, and is vital for keeping your body balanced, flexible and functioning at its best. Everyone, from growing children to active seniors, can benefit from regular chiropractic care.
How does chiropractic support an active lifestyle?
Whether you are a crossfit rockstar, rec league warrior, runner, golfer or yogi, your spinal column is made up of 24 independent vertebrae that enable your body to move, twist and bend during activities. It also helps protect the delicate central nervous system that controls and coordinates every muscle, tissue and organ of the body. Subluxations of the spine, commonly known as joint dysfunctions, can negatively affect proper nerve communication from the brain to the body–often resulting in pain and discomfort.
Routine chiropractic care can help athletes achieve:
Increased range of motion
Decreased muscle soreness from intense workouts
Reduced recovery time
Increased flexibility and performance
Enhanced immune functionality
Natural pain relief for joint pain
Chiropractic treatment can also help with:
Neck Pain (also known as “Text Neck”)
Headaches & Migraines
Leg Pain / Sciatica
Knee, Ankle & Foot Pain
Shoulder, Arm, Elbow & Wrist Pain
Arthritis & Bursitis
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Elite athletes of past and present, like Michael Jordan, Jerry Rice, Tom Brady and Jordan Spieth, choose chiropractic to give them a competitive edge. Experts estimate that 90% of all world class athletes use chiropractic care to prevent injuries and improve their performance.
