Chiropractic care has been helping families for years. Many of our patients see us as their family doctor and look at chiropractic as a family affair. Everyone talks about the rising cost of health care and Care Chiropractic works to keep your cost down. The adverse reactions to drugs receive front-page news on a daily basis. Families want safe and natural solutions to health care. More and more families are choosing chiropractic care first.
Family care can start from the very beginning. Babies can benefit when their pregnant mothers receive chiropractic care. During this period of weight gain and hormonal changes, many mothers seek chiropractic care and they often report easier births.
Newborns, infants and children can benefit, too. Yes newborns get adjusted all the time. Dr.Ackelson’s son was delivered at home and checked for subluxation immediately after birth. The birth process may be the cause of our first subluxation! Then, learning to walk, ride a bike or play sports can produce so-called growing pains. Ignored, these problems may worsen until the problems become more difficult to correct as an adult.
Car accidents, work injuries, and the stress and strains of our busy lives can produce subluxations. Periodic chiropractic checkups can be helpful. Many patients report more energy, vitality, and better overall health.
Seniors enjoying an active retirement stop by our office, too. Safe and natural chiropractic care makes sense. They see how the structure of the spine can affect the nervous system and how their bodies work. Dr Ackelson’s grandfather who passed away in November of 2010 at 94 was a regular chiropractic and massage patient in the office. He remained active in his own home, driving and traveling until just weeks before he passed.
Regardless of your age or condition, a better working spine is good for your health. Share your chiropractic experience with others by starting with those you love.
Why do newborns get chiropractic adjustments?
Even today’s “natural” childbirth methods can affect an infant’s spine. Preliminary studies suggest that colic, unusual crying; poor appetite, ear infections or erratic sleeping habits can be signs of spinal distress. Newborn chiropractic adjustments are gentle. As a rule, no more pressure than you’d use to test the ripeness of a tomato is involved.
