Who I Help – Families
You are the hub around which the family circulates. Taking care of yourself is the single most important thing you can do for your family. If you are in a bad mood because you haven’t exercised for a week your family will sense it. If your hip or lower back hurts you will not be able to do everything you do. And we usually go for comfort food when we don’t feel well which leads to unwanted weight gain.
Your nervous system is constantly sending a message to your body to function. If the part of your body that houses your most important resource is full of tension and stress, you can bet that your general sense of well being will be inhibited. Chiropractic care delivered by someone who knows how to get you back to living the life you desire….is priceless and your family will thank you.
Having a Baby?
Do you want to prepare your body for easier delivery and get a break from lower back and leg pain?
Pregnancy is one of the most amazing experiences a woman can have. It is also challenging. Weight gain and hormonal changes wreak havoc on muscles, joints, and ligaments. Postural changes can cause a nagging ache between the shoulder blades. The baby can position itself on one side causing hip and leg pain. Doing simple things like dishes requires making room for the belly while bending forward to reach the sink and it spells: a backache.
While one of the main goals is to provide pain relief and comfort for the mom, it is equally important to clear the way for messages to get from your brain to your babies growing body. Chiropractic care can provide a clear path for those messages.
Does your kid have terrible posture? Do they constantly crack their neck?
The digital age has done it again. The posture that is all too familiar. Head down, typing while walking down the street, in the car, at the dinner table. You get the picture.
Add one more stress. The heavy backpack.
I’ve seen a significant increase in lower neck dysfunction in the adolescent population. It’s a concern because it can lead to eye strain, tension headaches, nagging neck and shoulder pain. As we all know, pain is a huge distraction, particularly for kids. Chiropractic adjustments can ease the tension on the developing nervous and reduce physical symptoms, leading to greater focus and more positive mood. Plus no more neck cracking that can lead to long-term chronic muscle tension.
