Unlocking the Secrets of Chiropractic Care: When to Seek Help

Chiropractic Care is well-known for the alignment of the body, but there is much more that a chiropractor can do for you that people are not aware of. It includes therapy that emphasizes the body’s ability to heal itself. Chiropractic care is not limited to sports injuries or degeneration of bones, ligaments, and muscles. It can make a huge difference in the lives of many people of all ages, from babies to expectant mothers, active youths, and middle-aged or older people.

Chiropractic care for infants

The birthing process can be traumatic for a child as sometimes the baby is pulled and turned to come out of the birth canal. This can cause the baby’s little body to maybe suffer from muscle and skeletal pain. It is a good idea to have your baby checked by a chiropractor to ensure all is well and you have a healthy, happy, and properly functioning little human.

Chiropractic manipulation on kids also helps improve infantile colic symptoms. Acid reflux can be reduced by aligning the nerves in the brain and those that run through the spine to the gut. The baby feels better and the parents do not have a crying baby for prolonged periods of time.

According to a study done 40% of infants experience deeper sleep after just one session with a chiropractor. The manipulations done on babies are easier as they are more flexible and it helps them to remain in a relaxed state leading to quality sleep.

Gentle chiropractic manipulations and adjustments helps prevent ear infections with infants to correct problems before an infection sets in.

The chiropractic care, focusing on the musculoskeletal system, can assist children with growing pains. The alignment and manipulations will help the spine of young bodies to handle the demands of a growing body with an active lifestyle.

One of the bigger benefits of chiropractic care for young children, is the positive result of aligned bodies on their organs. The body restores health and function from within and eliminates intestine and stomach issues.

Chiropractic care for expectant mothers

Chiropractic care does not involve drugs or unnatural treatment. It focuses on the adjustment of misaligned joints.  The assistance and care from a chiropractor can make pregnancy much better and easier to live with for the mother and the unborn baby.

The intensity of pregnancy-related symptoms such as back pain, morning sickness, hormonal imbalances, nausea, and swollen ankles can be reduced or eliminated with the correct chiropractic care. Tables to accommodate the growing bellies of expectant mothers and techniques to alleviate any pressure on the bellies are used for the necessary manipulation and adjustment.

Often the mothers’ protruding belies result in an increased curve of the back, and they adapt their postures for their own comfort. This posture and comfort change can lead to misaligned spines and joints. A regular visit to a chiropractor can address these issues ensuring the correct posture during and after the pregnancy, so as not to have long-lasting negative effects on your body. Chiropractors can also show you effective stretches for relieving tension and easing discomfort.

The alignment of the pelvis during pregnancy is of utmost importance for the developing baby. If it is out of alignment, it can restrict the space available to the baby which can lead to birth defects. Alignment of the pelvis will ease the natural delivery process as the baby can move into the birth canal and the correct position for a much easier delivery. When your pelvis is balanced and correctly aligned, your baby has a smaller chance of moving into a breech position before delivery.

There are certain conditions that an expectant mother must clarify with her OBGYN before visiting a chiropractor such as vaginal bleeding, placenta previa or placenta abruption, ectopic pregnancy, or moderate to severe toxemia.
But overall, your pregnancy can be so much healthier, enjoyable, and beneficial for both mom and baby with guidance and help from a chiropractor.

Chiropractic care for all

Headaches and back or neck pain that won’t go away:
Many people suffer from headaches and back or neck pain without a proven reason like a previous injury. It can be because of a stressful life, poor posture, muscle tension, a sedentary lifestyle, or many other reasons. Skeletal disorders and misaligned spine are often the cause of these ailments and chiropractic care can relieve pain effectively. In the long run, these ailments can cause worse injuries or debilitating results and should be taken care of as soon as possible. Your chiropractor can diagnose and repair the cause for you to have a happier, pain-free healthier life.

Weak and painful joints:
Joints and muscles are all connected to the spine. Improper weight distribution in your body can place more pressure on certain joints and lead to the over-compensation of other joints. This imbalance in your physique can cause pain and weakness, resulting in you having an inactive, unhealthy life. Frequent muscle and joint pain is a good reason to visit a chiropractor for spine alignments and manipulations. The chiropractor can find and solve the root cause and help you live with long-term solutions and guidance on how to adjust and live without joint aches.

Limited and painful movement:
Many people as they progress in age, think that it is normal to not being able to bend down or climb the stairs without an ache or pain. The things we used to do as young people seem to be a huge task because our bodies have grown rigid, and we suffer pain and limited movement. Instead of yielding to the idea of old age and start taking regular muscle relaxers and pain medication, you can get an active healthy drug-free lifestyle back with the help of a chiropractor. Apart from treating the current condition you might experience, a chiropractor can improve the condition, give you salient advice to prevent the same in the future, and help you live life to the fullest without aches and pains and conditions you should not have to live with.

Improved Immune function:
Your nervous system is your body’s command center, It originates in the brain and regulates the function of your cells, body systems, and processes such as digestion and breathing, movement of your body, thoughts, and automatic responses.

Nerves compromised by misalignment of the body may also compromise the immune system’s ability to act in defense against something like infection in the body. To align the body back in the correct position you need chiropractic care so that the nerves can be in optimal working order and act with effectiveness in combating diseases, and live with greater mental clarity, more confidence and a healthier life.

No matter what age or lifestyle, you can benefit from chiropractic care to improve your life!
