Pediatric Chiropractic

The main purpose behind chiropractic care is not to alleviate symptoms or pain, but to ensure that you have a properly functioning nervous system. This is absolutely vital because our nervous system controls every single function in our body, and any dysfunction of that nervous system can be detrimental. It is how our brain communicates with the rest of our body.

How does this dysfunction occur? Believe it or not, this can happen in utero and continue through the birth process and early infancy. It is important to remember that the mother and neonate share the same nervous system during pregnancy, so if mom is stressed, the baby will be stressed as well.

Holiday Weight Gain is Real

I’m sure that we all secretly knew this, but Cornell University conducted a research study and confirmed that we do, in fact, gain weight over the holiday season.

The study included 3000 participants from the US, Germany and Japan. They were studying year round weight patterns of these individuals and found that the weight gain actually begins in October.

Pain affecting hard tissue like the spine and joints, and soft tissue including muscles and ligaments, is bound to happen to everyone at some point in life. Sudden, onset pain from specific injuries like athletics or car accidents as well as chronic pain from repetitive habits both affect the body’s musculoskeletal system. Limited range of motion can result from tissue damage, and both chiropractic and massage can restore the body’s mobility.

Protection Plans

By far, the majority of people coming into our office do so because of a secondary condition, aka, pain.

We are a very unique Chiropractic office, because instead of just focusing on pain and other secondary conditions, we focus on the Structural Correction of your spine. Whenever there is a structural shift in your spine, it causes a miscommunication from the brain to the rest of the body, which will then lead to those secondary conditions. That structural shift is the primary condition. By correcting that, we will therefore eliminate those secondary conditions.
