The word Chiropractic derives from Greek words meaning “done by hand”. The chiropractic philosophy is based around the concept that the body is controlled by the nervous system and brain. Since the nervous system in enclosed in the spinal column, specifically vertebra, it is possible that the information coming from the brain can become interrupted by various misalignments along the way. The job of a chiropractor is to recognize these interruptions and to restore the correct alignment. Although chiropractic is mostly associated with back issues other joints throughout the body can also become misaligned and in most cases create pain. Chiropractic can also address those joint issues as well.
Pediatric Chiropractic Care
Childbirth can be seen as one of the most traumatic experiences a person can go through and not just for the mother but the child as well. Twisting and turning. Pulling and squeezing. Children and infants rarely show up with chronic issues that constitute a lengthy treatment plan but left untreated their minimal issues can turn to more serious problems later in life. The most common issues that children and infants receive chiropractic care for are: colic, acid reflux, “ear infections”, headaches, “growing pains” and general neck and back pain.
