Can a Chiropractor Help with More Than Just Back and Neck Pain?

Most of the time when people think of chiropractors or chiropractic care they think specifically of back and neck pain. While chiropractors can definitely help relieve those issues they can do quite a bit more to help relieve other aches and pains and with your overall health and wellness. So, to help bust the myth of chiropractors as just “back crackers” we put together a list of just a few of the other areas chiropractic care can help with.

ADHD

Instead of treating the various symptoms of hyperactivity, we look for disturbances to the child’s nervous system. We often find problems caused by spinal distortions in the upper neck. In fact, this link between the spine, brain stem dysfunction and ADHD is common. A thorough chiropractic examination can reveal noticeable spinal distortion, even a reversal of the normal neck curve. That’s why we often recommend a schedule of safe and natural chiropractic adjustments to help reduce the accompanying nervous system tension.

Allergies

Your nervous system is the master system that orchestrates your immune system, glandular system, respiratory system and every other system that reacts inappropriately to an allergen. Normally, these systems help you respond and adapt to the world around you. But suffering from uncontrollable sneezing around a cat is probably an inappropriate reaction. If your nervous system isn’t working right, you don’t work right. So, rather than direct our attention to the countless potential allergens, we locate and reduce the disturbances we find to your nervous system. So, we don’t treat allergies. We look for ways to restore your ability to adapt to allergens by locating and reducing disturbances to your nervous system.

Headaches

A common cause of headaches is from spinal bones in the neck that aren’t supporting the head properly. You might not notice your reduced ability to turn your head. But these subluxations affect nerves, muscles and even the blood supply to your head. Our thorough examination detects subluxation patterns that could be causing your headaches. If subluxations are present, you’re likely to benefit from chiropractic care.

PMS

While chiropractic care isn’t a treatment for PMS (or any other condition), many women with spinal distortions have seen an improvement in their reproductive health while under chiropractic care. Restoring a more normally functioning nervous system helps the entire body work the way it’s supposed to. If you, or someone you love, is put out of commission every month, encourage her to come in for a thorough chiropractic examination. If there’s nerve interference, there’s a good chance we can help.

Pregnancy

At first glance, most people don’t see the connection between chiropractic and pregnancy. However, there are four stages in which having an optimally working nervous system can help both mother and child. These stages are pre-conception, pregnancy, labor and birth, and after birth. While you might be concerned that there would be a risk you’re your child if you receive chiropractic care while pregnant; there is no need to worry, we use special approaches to make our adjustments safe and comfortable for you and your child.

These are just a few of the areas chiropractic care can help. If you want to learn more contact us today.
