Discover Your Family’s Wellness Potential!
Here are just a few of the many ways that Chiropractic may benefit your family.
Every parent is familiar with “growing pains.”
As small bodies grow, development of different parts of the body may occur at different rates. Sports injuries, heavy backpacks and the normal rough-and-tumble of growing up can cause spinal misalignment.
Chiropractic can assure that the spine is aligned through all phases of development, preventing some chronic health problems before they occur.
Even infants can benefit from chiropractic care. Chiropractic has been successful in helping babies with colic, poor appetite, and sleeping disorders.
Expectant mothers may also enjoy regular chiropractic care during their pregnancy. Women may experience aches and pains that cannot be treated with medications. Chiropractic care is a great way to relieve the pain and physical stress of pregnancy.
We all have lifestyles that may contribute to spinal misalignments, compromising proper nerve flow induced by mental and physical stressors. Activities such as spending long hours hunched over a computer, running the rat race of the 21st century, and intensely physical weekend projects are all good reasons to add chiropractic care to your family’s health routine.
How We Can Help Your Family Achieve the Highest Level of Health
Our clinics utilize Gonstead System of Chiropractic to assist in being thorough and complete in locating and addressing your health concerns. The Gonstead name refers to Dr. C.S. Gonstead, who designed this treatment system 60 years ago.
This system involves five components:
1. Visualization: Our Chiropractic Doctors are experts at looking for subtle changes in your posture that could indicate a problem.
Instrumentation: Gonstead doctors use a Nervoscope, which is guided down your spine to detect variances of heat along the spine. When a spinal joint has been injured, even in the past, the body will be warmer in that specific spot, much like sprained ankle is warm to the touch after injury.
Static Palpation: This is done simply by feeling your spine while you are in a stationary position. Our Chiropractic Doctors and Auto Accident Chiropractor’s look for heat and swelling around the joints of your spine.
Motion Palpation: Our Chiropractors feels your spine for restrictions or areas of excessive mobility, while asking you to move and bend in various angles.
X-Ray Analysis: Our Chiropractors visualize the entire structure of your spine. This final step helps in evaluating your condition to determine if your problem can be helped by chiropractic care.
When a joint in the spine is misaligned, it can irritate or even obstruct the electrical signal of its neighboring nerve. When this happens, nerves cannot deliver the full capacity of information they are designed to carry. Since nerves supply information to every cell in our bodies, the function of organs can also be impaired and your overall health can be compromised.
