Children and Infants

Regular chiropractic adjustments can contribute to healthy growth and development of the spine.  Many spinal issues common in adults can be headed off with treatment at an early age.  Anything from the process of birth to jumping off a play structure can affect a child’s spinal alignment.  Chiropractors adjust the intensity of their manipulation to be gentler on children and babies because they are smaller and more flexible.

Sports Injuries

Chiropractic treatment is extremely effective for sports-related injuries.  Chiropractic therapy can help inflammation in strained muscles.

Many people don’t know that chiropractors are trained to adjust joints in the extremities as well as the spine.  For injuries like strains and sprains, the doctor can help realign the joints in your arms and legs, thereby putting your muscles and tendons in the right position to heal.

In short, chiropractic treatment of sports injuries can help you get back to the activities you love faster than with traditional treatment alone.

Digestive Issues

Can chiropractic really help me with digestive issues? 

This is a question we hear often!  Although it may not be obvious, the functioning of your digestive system is very much related to spine and nerve health.  Your digestive system is regulated by signals from your brain that travel through your nervous system.  Many chronic digestive issues are related to nerve problems – the most notable being irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).  Chiropractic can help your body’s communication pathways – your nerves – function better, leading to relief from digestive symptoms.

Chronic Pain and Fibromyalgia

Chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and neuropathy are frustrating diagnoses.  These diseases are real and difficult to deal with, and traditional biomedicine does not offer many effective treatment options for them. 

Chiropractic may be better able to offer you more significant, long-term relief than the prescribed medications that are expensive and often come with harmful side effects (for example, the fibromyalgia medication Lyrica is associated with significant weight gain).  This is because these conditions are related to improper nerve signaling to the brain, causing patients to perceive pain when there shouldn’t be any.  Chiropractic can help restore nerve health, allowing for more effective communication between your brain and body.
