WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC:
A health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.
WHAT IS THE NERVOUS SYSTEM:
The nervous system is a complex network of nerves and cells that carry messages to and from the brain and spinal cord to various parts of the body.
The nervous system includes both the Central nervous system and Peripheral nervous system. The Central nervous system is made up of the brain and spinal cord and The Peripheral nervous system is made up of the Somatic and the Autonomic nervous systems.
HOW CAN CHIROPRACTIC HELP ME:
The most common therapeutic procedure performed by doctors of chiropractic is known as “spinal manipulation,” also called “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for the sufferer. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.
IS CHIROPRACTIC SAFE FOR PREGNANCY AND CHILDREN:
YES! Even more than just good nutrition and less stress, the well-being of your spine and nervous system influences the development of your baby. Preconception and Prenatal chiropractic care means less morning sickness, less lower back pain and improved quality labor and delivery as well as babe being in the correct position for birth. It also supports the integrity of your pelvic function.
Children benefit from chiropractic care on a deep level. From birth to teens, chiropractic can have a HUGE positive impact on a child's life from the treatment of ear infections, asthma and more! Your child's spine will double in size by age of 2. Since the brain, spinal cord and nerves control your baby's immune, digestion and elimination as well as respiratory systems, it's important to be sure their spine develops correctly.
Many parents report that after beginning chiropractic care for their infant, they have seen less symptoms of colic, reflux and ear infections as well as improved sleep patterns.
