Did you know it is a proven fact that the use of chiropractic care leads to 60% less hospital admissions, 59% less days in the hospital, and 85% less pharmaceutical costs? Everyday more and more people are choosing chiropractic as a sound investment for good health. Are you?
The origination of the term chiropractic is derived from Greek, which defines its meaning as done by hand. Chiropractic care has been used to address pain and health issues dating back to ancient Egypt, though the organized practice of chiropractic has been documented as having arrived in the United States in the late 19th century. It is widely regarded as a natural approach to preventative and health maintenance care as well as a conservative approach to help mitigate pain and issues caused by a great number of illnesses and disease.
Chiropractic is viewed as a natural healthcare method because neither drugs nor surgical procedures are used; rather it is a health practice which is applied through manual manipulation of the spine to release the spinal structure of misalignments, encouraging the body to perform as it is intended and aid the body in self-healing. These misalignments, referred to as subluxations, may cause nerve irritation on any number of the spinal nerves creating extremely painful and uncomfortable sensations. Many seek relief from the pain caused by this pressure when visiting a doctor of chiropractic for an initial visit. In time, patients can experience an overall improvement in their health making it clear that chiropractic care is an integral part of a routine wellness plan and corrective care.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR EXPECTING MOTHERS AND CHILDREN
Being pregnant, though a beautiful process, can often come with unwanted symptoms. You may think that you are simply out of luck, and must deal with these symptoms as just “part of being pregnant.” However, this is a myth! The truth is that chiropractic care can greatly diminish, if not completely abolish many of theses symptoms!
Pregnancy is stressful to the body and will cause something called vertebral subluxation. This is a shift in one of your vertebrae causing body imbalance, nerve pressure, and brain stem tension. The subluxation interferes with your nervous system to confuse your brain’s messages to your body. In worst case scenarios, this can cause the baby to move into the “breech birthing position.”
Because of this vertebral subluxation you will experience many symptoms including pain in the neck, shoulder, back , hip, knee, or foot. It can also cause headaches as well as constant pressure and tension in your muscles. However, you are in luck! These symptoms can be treated with chiropractic care!
Chiropractic care is also important for children in the developmental stage. When the body is growing, it can cause the spine to “slip” out of place. It is crucial for this to be fixed, or the muscles around the spine will get used to being out of place and can develop incorrectly.
