What kind of complaints can a chiropractor help?
Who do we help?
We help people of all ages from those just a few days old, all the way up to the more experienced of us in life.
These are the main reasons someone may choose to see a chiropractor:
Because we mostly work with the spine, a lot of people associate chiropractors with helping back pain, neck pain and headaches. The reason we work with the spine is because it protects the delicate nervous system that sends and receives messages from the brain. These messages are vital for proper function in the body. If they are interrupted due to dysfunction of the spine, it may result in a wide range of effects including pain.
Many other people visit us for health issues which may not immediately seem related to the health of the spine. We often see vast improvements in sleep, energy, menstrual issues, the health of the digestive and immune systems and a host of other issues. The brain coordinates and regulates all other systems of the body. Since chiropractic has a drastic impact on improving the function of the brain, it's no wonder other areas of your health can improve too.
Chiropractic works with the natural ability of the body to self heal and self regulate. We often see people visit our practice who don't want to take toxic medications or who want to avoid surgical options. We believe that an optimally functioning brain and nervous system have no need for dangerous pain killers, anti-inflammatory medications or muscle relaxants.
Most of our clients visit us on an ongoing basis for maintenance care, even when they have no pain. This ensures their brain and the body are communicating with each other as effectively as possible, and their health and wellness are functioning at their best!
There are many changes happening to your body during pregnancy, and not only just the size of your belly! This extra weight creates an increase in the load for the low back and the sacrum down the base of the spine, so it is important that there's good stability there throughout the pregnancy. The nerves that take messages from the brain to the growing baby come out of the spine in the low back, so if these are functioning properly then this will support healthy development during pregnancy. Research also shows that women under regular chiropractic care have faster deliveries with less needs for drugs.
During the first 2 years of life the brain and nervous system are developing at a rapid rate, and this development is well supported with chiropractic care. As children grown older, there is lots happening in their active lives which require the brain functioning at its absolute best. We have also seen many issues such as ADHD, autism, bed-wetting and learning disabilities improve under chiropractic care!
