Pediatric Chiropractic Services

From the moment of birth, the spine is subject to stress and strain. As a child develops, the usual process of crawling, walking, running, and other activities leads to falls and accidents. These accidents result in both small and large traumas to the spine and nervous system.

The chiropractic profession places emphasis on structural balance, and has attributed considerable importance to the potential problems which result from seemingly harmless childhood accidents.

Women's Wellness Care & Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractics for Senior Citizens

As your body ages, pain can often leave you unable or unwilling to live an active life. Regular chiropractic care can reduce pain, improve flexibility and strength, and even prevent further loss of muscle and bone caused by reduction in activity levels. You don't have to live with pain just because your body is aging. If you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, your doctor of chiropractic can help you plan an individualized exercise program that will help you restore the lost range of motion to your joints, improve your flexibility and endurance, increase your muscle tone and strength. Doctors of chiropractic can also give you nutrition and supplementation advice that can be helpful in controlling and reducing joint inflammation.

Caring for Your Spine at Home

Proper care for your spine at home includes actions performed during daily activities, as well as weekend projects. Your home can provide many scenarios where injury is preventable with proper lifting and turning techniques. As you lift an object, keep your back straight, use your legs to power the lift, not your back and shoulders. When turning, don't plant your feet and twist your upper body. The proper technique is to keep your feet moving, and the back straight, while turning in the direction you wish to go. Many back injuries at home are caused by bending and twisting the spine improperly, so use your feet and legs to power and pivot your body.

Caring for Your Spine with Chiropractics

The ACA Tips for Back Pain Prevention:

  • Maintain a healthy diet and weight. Remain active—under the supervision of your doctor of chiropractic. Avoid prolonged inactivity or bed rest.
  • Warm up or stretch before exercising or other physical activities, such as gardening.
  • Maintain proper posture.
  • Wear comfortable, low-heeled shoes.
  • Sleep on a mattress of medium firmness to minimize any curve in your spine.
  • Lift with your knees, keep the object close to your body, and do not twist when lifting.
  • Quit smoking. Smoking impairs blood flow, resulting in oxygen and nutrient deprivation to spinal tissues.
  • Work with your doctor of chiropractic to ensure that your workstation is ergonomically correct
