Chiropractic Care is Important for the Whole Family

There are a lot of misconceptions about chiropractic care. One of the top misconceptions is that it is only for people with back pain. Instead, chiropractic care is a wonderful and healthy preventive care for the whole family. Regular chiropractic care can be performed on both the young and the old, and is useful in treating a wide variety of symptoms.

Newborns

Even though newborns are so small and new to this world, even they can benefit from chiropractic care in their initial days. Wellness adjustments on a newborn are very gentle and are more like a soft massage. Chiropractic care can help newborns sleep better and eat better, whether they are breastfed or bottle fed. In fact, 90% of newborns come into this world misaligned, and they will then show symptoms such as colic or issues with breastfeeding.

Children

Children may also benefit from several manual adjustments a year. Regular chiropractic care for children can result in fewer sick days, better sleeping habits, less bed-wetting incidents, and a better mood overall. Chiropractic care is also an excellent way to treat and prevent ear infections, which are very common in toddlers and young children.

Teens

Teens tend to get into poor posture habits early on. Chiropractic adjustments may help correct subluxations from poor posture. Regular chiropractic care is also extremely important if teens are involved in sports. Getting adjusted could prevent injuries and help promote healing if an injury does occur.

Adults

Adults are the one age group that may need the most chiropractic care due to inactivity, long hours sitting in the office, and poor posture habits. Chiropractic care can boast benefits such as reducing headaches, helping insomnia, preventing pain, and even battling stress and depression. Taking care of your back now, could ensure that you will age better.

Senior Citizens

As we age, our joints grow stiffer and injuries from falling can be devastating. One bad fall later in life can lead to a rapid decline of health. Regular chiropractic adjustments can help keep the joints and muscles more mobile. Chiropractic care can also prevent injuries and decrease the chances of falling. After several adjustments, balance and coordination may be restored too. This means that older individuals could be able to avoid limping as much.

Everyone in the family could use regular chiropractic care for better health. You do not need to go to the chiropractor just when you have back pain. Instead, regular care can keep you healthy and feeling great all year long.
