Chiropractic has no prejudice. Every member of the family is a perfect patient for chiropractic from the newborn baby to grandma and grandpa. This is possible because at LifeSource Health and Wellness, we are educated to be able to treat all people of all ages.
Studies have found that 95% of children have a subluxation in their neck following birth. This subluxation will affect their health for the rest of their life. Subluxations occur in newborns because birth is a very physically traumatic experience. If there are complications during birth that just increases the trauma to the child’s body. These subluxations in the cervical spine (neck) have been linked to:
- Difficulty breastfeeding
- Colicky behavior
- Ear infections
While the child is growing they undergo many important developmental stages. When a baby learns to how hold up their head they are developing a very important curvature in their neck and when they learn to crawl they develop a very important curvature in their low back. As the child grows and learns to walk they are going to fall, an average of, 38 times a day. This constant micro-trauma to a child can create misalignments that can create stress on the nervous system manifesting as:
- Frequent colds/flus
- Frequent ear infections
- Decreased immune response
As toddlers grow they begin to run, jump, climb, ride bikes, play sports, etc. The phrase “Kids will be kids” is a perfect example of this stage of aging. Again, these micro-traumas will take a toll on a growing child.
The life of a teenager is stressful enough with peer pressure and trying to please parents. Everybody knows that teenagers are emotionally and mentally stressed but what a lot of people don’t notice is how most of their daily activities create a lot of stress on their body. Sitting at a desk studying, sports and sometimes that first car accident are all examples of reasons teenagers need care. A lot of common complaints are treatable with chiropractic care, including:
- Menstrual cramps
- Frequent illness (colds, flus)
As adults we live naturally stressful lives but maintaining good health is very important and everyone knows that stress can create physically problems. Chiropractic care is a safe and natural way to combat the effects of stress on the body as well as what life does to the body.
As people age they use their age as an excuse for the aches and pains that they feel. Unfortunately this excuse leads to last minute care and the body takes longer to heal at this stage. Maintain your health and enjoy being a senior.
At LifeSource Health and Wellness it is the biggest compliment when our patients trust us to care for their entire family. As a matter of fact, it’s an honor.
