However, you may not be aware of the full range of chiropractic care for everything from asthma relief to carpal tunnel syndrome. In fact, family chiropractic care goes way beyond back pain and can truly benefit everyone in your family.
- Colicky infants
- Teens with allergies
- Adults with back pain
The reason chiropractic care has such a wide range of benefits is that it treats your entire body by re aligning your spine which affects your entire nervous system.
You’re probably aware that your spine runs from your neck to your lower back, from there, your sciatic nerve runs down either leg. That’s why leg pain can stem from your lower back.
Your spine is connected to everything else in your body and how you feel relates directly to it. Keeping it in good working form is essential to your overall health and that’s why family chiropractic care can benefit every family member.
For example, let’s look at chiropractic care for pregnancy.
Chiropractic Care for Pregnant Women
It’s no secret that your body changes drastically when you’re pregnant. The extra weight in your belly causes you to stand differently which can put increased pressure on your joints and/or cause lower back pain. Plus, your pelvis tilts.
It all adds up to a posture change which typically pushes vertebrae out of place where they can rest on a nerve and..ouch. This misalignment can also affect your brain causing you be forgetful and feel foggy. Regular chiropractic adjustments realign your spine so these vertebrae are put back into place and you feel better.
When it comes to your newborn baby, they can benefit from pediatric chiropractic care too. Journal of Manual Medicine examined 1000 newborns and found 119 of them had imbalances in the spine and nerves that could be corrected by gentle chiropractic care.
Left untreated, these imbalances can contribute to colic, tonsillitis, allergies, asthma, ADD/ADHD and even seizures. If you have a fussy baby, a chiropractor experienced in pediatrics may be able to help.
Chiro care can even benefit those with allergies or asthma.
Chiropractic Care for Allergies and Asthma
You may not realize that allergies and asthma are a result of a lowered immunity system. In fact, what happens, is if you come into contact with pollen for example, it can trigger sneezing, watery eyes and the other symptoms of allergies which is your bodies’ way of going into overdrive to protect you.
You may have heard of a “chemical cascade.” When you have an allergy attack, your body releases the antibodies immunoglobulin E (IgE.) These antibodies cascade through your body in order to neutralize the pollen or other allergy trigger. As a result, you experience the itchy eyes and all the other symptoms.
Yet, you know your spine is connected to your entire body. When you get regular chiropractic adjustments, it re aligns your spine so that not only do you feel better, but it also boosts your immunity. That means you may be able to rid you and your family of allergies and asthma all together.
As you can see, chiropractic adjustments can do far more than simply reduce back or shoulder pain. It can yelp you and your family at every stage of life.
