Can Chiropractic Help?
Chiropractic has been helping people for over 100 years. Below is a summary of how chiropractic can help treat a variety of conditions.
You Had An Accident
Trauma distorts bones, ligaments, tendons, and can cause nerve damage. Even small accidents can create powerful ripple effects in the body. To prevent long-term damage, it is important to have your spine evaluated after any trauma—even when no symptoms are present. Symptoms are notoriously known to show up weeks or months after an accident. Don’t risk it. Come in and get evaluated right away.
You Have a Sports or Work Injury
Repetitive stress injuries from sports, overuse of a muscle, or work can damage joints and irritate nerves. This can negatively impact one’s range of motion, strength, and performance. Chiropractic can help you regain your nerve function, strength, and normal range of motion to get you back to your “peak” function.
You Are in Pain
A lack of joint movement can cause nerve function to become impaired. This interruption is exhibited by the body in the form of pain, numbness, and tingling. It can be treated, and we can help restore your health and nerve function.
Congratulations! This is an exciting and wonderful stage in your life. However, the added pounds during pregnancy place extra stress on a woman’s body. In addition, low back pain is common due to the release of hormones that cause ligaments in a woman’s body to loosen in preparation for childbirth. Chiropractic works in a natural and holistic way to alleviate these pains. Lastly, research shows that chiropractic care during pregnancy speeds up delivery time significantly by ensuring proper pelvic bone movement.
Common Children’s Illnesses
Babies and young children respond well to chiropractic treatment when they have colic, diarrhea, ear infections, chronic bed wetting, and many other conditions. Children have a lot to gain from chiropractic care. Regular spinal exams help ensure that children have an “optimized” nervous system to respond to any threat—internal or external. Children are resilient and recover from illnesses faster than adults. Bringing your child in once every two months or when he/she gets sick is recommended to keep them healthy.
Teens should to be screened for scoliosis early on to correct any possible spinal deviations. If scoliosis is not caught early, it is often irreversible. At Everest Chiropractic we help your teen understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle. This education can have lifelong effects when your teen’s good habits are created early.
Aging is a part of life. As we age, our bodies naturally break down. This can lead to increases in medications, surgeries, and pain. Maintaining a wellness program with your chiropractor can ensure your body keeps moving and functioning at its peak.
You Feel Great
If you feel great, should you still come in? Absolutely! Everyone has a nervous system and a spine that can be optimized, thereby allowing them to live a healthier and more vibrant life. The nervous system that exits the spine controls the entire body. Don’t you want your body to perform at its best? Just as you would go to a dentist for regular checkups, going to a chiropractor on a monthly basis ensures proper spinal and nervous system function. Come in to Everest Chiropractic today and partner with us in your wellness.
