Chiropractic Care and You

Most often, people go to chiropractors the first time for relief from neck or back pain commonly caused by accidents, muscular strain from heavy lifting, even stress. We’ve all been there at one time or another. Even normal, healthy activities can cause sprains and strains, which can lead to pain. Gardening, tennis, running, even a friendly game of golf can all potentially cause pain in your neck and back.

However, chiropractors treat a broad range of conditions and ailments in addition to neck and back pain. The following conditions are known to respond well to chiropractic treatments:

  • Asthma
  • Attention Deficit Disorder
  • Autism
  • Blindness/Visual Disorders
  • Blood Pressure
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Chronic Neck Pain
  • Colic
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Deafness
  • Degenerative Joint Disease
  • Disc Herniation
  • Epilepsy
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Low Back Pain
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Pregnancy-related Pain
  • Repetitive Stress
  • Scoliosis
  • Spinal Pain
  • Vertigo and Balance
  • Whiplash

Because chiropractic healthcare is holistic care, patients look to chiropractors for general wellness, too. In fact, preventive healthcare is among the fastest growing areas of chiropractic care.

Chiropractic care even helps athletes have better coordination of muscles and balance. When the bones of the spine are misaligned, the spinal joints cannot function properly, putting pressure on nerves causing hindered biomechanics. Every single aspect of body function is controlled and regulated by the brain and nerves. Unstable spinal alignments can alter body weight bearing, increase risk of injury, accelerate degeneration of the spine, and the body can’t reach its full potential.

At Integrative Family Wellness Clinic, you will be evaluated using time-honored methods including consultation, case history and physical examination. In addition, you will receive a careful chiropractic structural examination, with particular attention paid to the spine. Your chiropractor will readily refer you to the appropriate health care provider if chiropractic care is not suitable for your condition or if the condition warrants co-management in conjunction with other members of our IFWC health care team.

Regular chiropractic care can help you feel better, move with more freedom, and stay healthier. Although you can enjoy the benefits of Chiropractic care even if you are only treated for a short time, the real benefits come into play when you incorporate chiropractic care into your lifestyle.
