True or false: chiropractic treatment is only for people of a certain age that are having pain from an injury or accident? False. No matter how old you are, a chiropractor can provide treatment that is beneficial. Read on to learn more.
Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Even before a baby is born, a chiropractor can provide care that is beneficial to the mother and the fetus. During those nine months, chiropractic care allows for a healthier pregnancy, easier delivery and nutritional support for both mom and her baby.
Chiropractic adjustments relieve the back, joint and neck pain that are often associated with pregnancy. Proper alignment of the pelvis may create the proper position for delivery, decrease delivery time, and be less stressful on baby during delivery. Adjustments and proper nutrition can also decrease or possibly eliminate morning sickness.
Chiropractic Care for Kids
Kids don’t typically have pain. They may even have a spinal or postural distortion, but still not feel any kind of pain or discomfort. And because they don’t have pain, children are typically easier to treat, and they respond more quickly to treatment.
Simply put, any postural distortion in a child hasn’t been there as long as one in an adult. Therefore, it is easier to overcome in a shorter period of time, whereas an adult could need more treatments.
Chiropractic Care and Senior Citizens
The biggest hurdle with seniors is that their condition may have been around for a long period of time. Decades of postural distortion and poor structure can lead to degenerative conditions, such as arthritis. These and similar condition can certainly be overcome in treatment—it simply takes more treatment.
Chiropractic Care for Everyone
Hopefully, you will have many years between childhood and senior age. During this time, regular chiropractic care can prevent many conditions and injuries.
If you have a teen that is active in sports, he or she should be routinely checked for spinal misalignments including scoliosis. A chiropractor can help your young athlete achieve top performance and general health, as well as prevent or treat injuries.
Adults often wait to seek chiropractic care after a car accident, work accident or when they are having back pain. Regular chiropractic care, however, can prevent many conditions and injuries, so those who schedule preventative appointments often experience the greatest health benefits.
How old are you? Never mind, it doesn’t matter. Schedule an appointment today with a chiropractor regardless of your age, and you’ll be taking a worthwhile step toward better health and well being.
