When to Seek Chiropractic Care?
Many people think that you should only see a chiropractor if you are having back pain. However, the nerves in the spinal column extend to every area and organ of the body and the whole body is affected by proper nerve energy. For instance, if your back is out of alignment it can cause pain in other parts of the body like your legs, your neck, or your head.
When your vertebrae are out of alignment, this is known as a subluxation. When a chiropractor gives you an adjustment, he helps your body move the vertebrae back into position. Normal nerve energy can then resume and the body can be relieved. Chiropractors don’t heal illness, they just help the body to get back to its normal alignment, which then allows the nerves to work properly and healing takes place naturally.
If you are experiencing pain or you don’t feel good, your body is trying to tell you something. Chiropractic care isn’t about treating the symptoms; it’s about treating the root cause of the pain without surgery. Chiropractors treat people who for the most part look healthy on the outside, but feel unaccounted for pain, experience sleep loss, etc., telling them they are not doing well.
The best way to know if you need chiropractic care is to get an assessment. Call our office today to schedule an appointment.
Chiropractic Care Benefits for Children
Did you know that many spinal problems seen in adults begin as early as their birth? During a woman’s pregnancy, the baby’s spine and developing nerve system may be damaged or severely stressed. The resulting irritation can be a cause of many newborn health issues, including breathing problems, nursing difficulties, playtime difficulties, and infections. So it makes sense why a parent would want to receive chiropractic care for their child who may be experiencing spinal trauma!
As a child grows and develops, he or she is beginning to participate in more physical activities that could potentially result in minor or major spine injury. Before the problem gets worse, it is important to take some preventative measures early in the child’s life to treat the spinal issues. Any problem in the vital nerve system will harm the child’s body and affect its ability to function, so seeking chiropractic care for a child can make a big impact on the child’s health and well-being later in life.

Chiropractic Treatments for Golf
Did you know that chiropractic medicine is a top choice for treating and preventing golf injuries? Most golfers do not actually think to go to a chiropractor for their injuries, and instead choose different avenues to solve their pain. However, most injuries that golf players sustain are in their backs! And what is a better solution for back pain than a chiropractor?
As you may know, golf involves a lot of swinging, twisting, and turning at fast speeds. This can wreak havoc on players’ torsos and lower back. Other common areas where injury can occur include the neck, shoulder, elbow, and hip pain. Also, golf can be a slow and long sport, therefore, involving a heavy amount of walking and standing. This can be traumatic to certain parts of your body, especially if you play golf frequently.
If you consider yourself an avid golfer who sustains typical golf injuries, our chiropractic office can do a lot for you, including spinal adjustments, preventative golf swing advice, and rehabilitation exercises. Chiropractic treatment can help reduce your back pain, improve your golf game, and prevent you from sustaining any serious injuries that may restrict your playing completely.
