Who is Chiropractic For?
Chiropractic care is for EVERYONE! While there are some conditions and ailments that require additional intervention, chiropractors are trained as primary care physicians and are adept at managing cases that may require co-management with other health professionals as well as those that may be better served elsewhere.
There is NO MINIMUM AGE for chiropractic care! Often times, mothers elect to have their newborns checked by a chiropractor within days of birth to ensure that the body is functioning properly following the stress associated with the birthing process. For more information about chiropractic care for infants and children, please check our Pediatric Chiropractic page.
When performed by a well-trained doctor, chiropractic care DURING PREGNANCY can help mothers cope with the physical strains of pregnancy and the birthing process. Pregnancy and child birth are NORMAL functions for a body that is operating at its peak potential. Chiropractic can assist by ensuring your body is functioning properly, restoring proper pelvic position, and providing health counseling as part of a proactive birth plan and post-partum recovery. For more about pregnancy and chiropractic, visit our Prenatal & Pregnancy Care page.
You are NEVER TOO OLD to begin living a healthier, more functional life. While the years behind you are not going to be erased, there is always room for improvement no matter your age. Regular chiropractic care as part of a healthy aging plan can help to keep you active doing the things you love! We believe there are far too many ailments attributed to "old age" that can be managed or resolved through conservative chiropractic care. It is never too late to try something new!
Chiropractors are NOT PAIN DOCTORS! While it is common for individuals with pain or other symptoms to gain relief through chiropractic care, we do not chase your symptoms. We focus on the detection and correction of THE CAUSE of your symptoms. Pain is one of the ways your body communicates that something in the body is not right. Underlying misalignments in the spine can cause the whole body to function differently than expected. After all, your spine protects and surrounds your nervous system which is the controller of all bodily functions. Small misalignments can cause big problems down the road if left uncorrected. Many of our patients come to us because they want to be healthier and function better. They come to us regularly because they understand that there is more to life than lack of pain, they want to excel physically, mentally, and emotionally!
