18 May Chiropractic: Subluxation Correction for the Family
Chiropractors are the only health professionals who are specially trained to locate and correct a serious health-damaging internal distortion referred to as a subluxation. Subluxations can occur as a result of any kind of stress: physical, emotional or chemical (toxins, etc.).
Subluxations can affect your nervous system, immune system, endocrine system, digestive system, elimination system and nearly every part of your body.
Most subluxations are painless; you may have many in your body and not know it. They are like dental cavities, slowly destroying your health often without your awareness. That’s why chiropractors spend thousands of hours learning how to locate and correct (adjust) them out of your body.
How do infants and children benefit from chiropractic care?
Childhood is a rough time, full of falls, trips and even traumas. A physical, emotional or chemical (toxic) trauma experienced as a young child could cause subluxations that affect internal organs, mental health, strength and balance, and overall resistance to disease. Every child needs periodic chiropractic checkups in order to grow up healthy and happy.
Chiropractic for infants?
They have low back pain? Hardly—yet infants need chiropractic care to ensure that the stress of labor and delivery hasn’t damaged their spines and delicate structural systems. Other stresses can involve falls— nearly half of all babies have had a fall from a height (off the changing table, off the bed, etc.). Chiropractic care will help ensure a healthy baby with better resistance to disease and better ability to discharge toxins. Chiropractic will help an ill baby return to health more quickly and more comfortably.
There are many case histories of chiropractic helping children with all kinds of conditions—asthma, colic, difficulty breastfeeding, ear infections, autism spectrum disorder, vision and hearing disorders, neurological conditions and more! No matter what conditions babies may have, chiropractic care can help them grow into healthy, happy children. (1-4)
How does chiropractic help women?
The pelvic area receives an intense amount of nerve communications. The ovaries, uterus, Fallopian tubes, kidneys, adrenal glands and other internal organs all need a healthy nerve supply to function properly. Clinical studies show chiropractic helps women with menstrual pain and discomfort, menstrual irregularities, sexual function, fertility and menopause. (5-7)
How do the elderly benefit from chiropractic care?
The elderly are among our most drugged citizens. It is not unusual for seniors to be taking many different medications and suffering from serious reactions to them. Many times people are taking drugs that interact in ways that are more damaging than if they took them individually. Chiropractic offers a drug-free alternative to an over-drugged population. Why? Because your body is the world’s greatest drugstore, able to make every drug and chemical you need. Chiropractic helps turn on this internal pharmacy. (8)
