What Can Chiropractic Do For Me?
Help keep you youthful and healthy All your life you've gotten your teeth, eyes, hearing, blood pressure and heart checked…how many years has it been since you or your loved ones had your spine checked? Unfortunately many of us have never had this done – and it shows!
Many people's spines are suffering from a lifetime of neglect, and as a result discs are thinning, there is spinal degeneration (osteoarthritis), nerves are stressed and unhealthy, posture is off, energy is low, diseases are developing and premature aging is setting in.
Our goal in this office is to turn your health around by relieving you of a serious form of spine and nerve damage called the vertebral subluxation complex, or simply subluxations’.
Subluxations are distortions in your body structure that can stress and weaken your bones, nerves, muscles, li-gaments, discs, joints and even internal organs, including your brain. The effects can be immediate or they may take time – it depends on many factors such as age, diet and lifestyle.
Regular chiropractic checkups and adjustments can ensure that you and your loved ones live without subluxa-tions, keeping your resistance to disease high and ensur-ing your body works at its optimum.
Chiropractic and spinal research
Is there any disease or condition you'd like to know about? Let us know.
Chronic constipation. A 7-month-old girl suffering from chronic constipation with a history of painful straining and hard, pellet-like stools (once per day to once every 3 days) was brought in for chiropractic care. After one visit the patient’s bowel function normalized to one or two soft, effortless stools per day. Improvements were confirmed at a 1-year follow-up visit.
Diabetes and chiropractic. Six patients with Type 2 di-abetes underwent chiropractic care plus baseline mea-surements of blood pressure, pulse, electrocardiogram and plasma glucose levels were obtained. Patients were assessed 1, 2 and 3 hours post adjustment. The adjust-ments resulted in a stabilization of plasma glucose levels during the three hour fasting period.
Erb’s Palsy. This is the case of a 5-week-old boy with a limp left arm. Clinical diagnosis of Erb-Duchenne Palsy was made. The child received specific chiropractic ad-justments to the mid-cervical spine and an exercise pro-gram. Patient’s condition resolved with only a mild “wai-ter’s tip” deformity within two months.
