Chiropractic is a good choice during pregnancy
Working alongside your primary care physician and prenatal care specialists, chiropractic offers a further layer of protection to the mother’s body as she goes through the flood of changes that is part and parcel of pregnancy. The majority of these changes involve the growing and shifting of weight, which tends to add pressure onto the spine even as it creates imbalances in the musculature and vertebrae. Added weight and misalignment leave the mother’s body vulnerable to pain related to tense muscles and nerve compression. Later in the pregnancy, pelvic ligaments loosen in preparation for childbirth and the whole system becomes further destabilized; in severe cases, this systemic misalignment and tension can reduce the space available for the growth and development of the fetus in the womb; it can also contribute to the breech presentation in the period leading up to the delivery date.
Why is such effective pain relief?
We think it is because of the time and care we are able to devote to your personal experience. Traditional Western healthcare dictates that we diagnose a problem and prescribe a solution; and while that has proved to be effective enough to be deemed the standard, it does not work for everyone. In fact, western medicine often falls short by failing to understand a condition as part of a bigger picture. This big picture approach is what makes chiropractic so effective- we pain a picture of your pain and dysfunction and use diagnostics to get to their source. We then set a course to resolve the root cause and set up an action plan for prevention.
Chiropractic is effective care for seniors
There is a misconception that chiropractic is too aggressive, or that the adjustments are too forceful for aging bodies, that is simply untrue. The fact is that every patient we see receives a completely individualized treatment based on their unique body and set of conditions; that includes seniors. Chiropractic is not too forceful for an older body; in fact, in tandem with your primary care physician, chiropractic helps seniors maintain mobility and independence of movement. Let’s find out why more and more seniors are turning to the complementary care that chiropractic provides.
