More often than not, when people think of chiropractic, they immediately associate our profession with neck and/or back pain. What many do not realize, however, is that chiropractic is a health care profession that provides significantly more than just a solution for pain. Chiropractic is a lifestyle that involves all aspects of wellness, including exercise, nutrition, personal development, and stress relief. At Optimal Vitality Chiropractic, Dr. Amanda Meyers works with people from all walks of life (ranging from babies, children, and adolescents to the elderly) and the outcomes have been incredible.
CHIROPRACTIC FOR KIDS
The Chiropractic care that we provide is an effective and affordable program that addresses children’s health conditions associated with the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Gentle, noninvasive and drug-free, chiropractic adjustments treat, resolve and prevent a wide range of health problems. Periodic ongoing adjustments at a young age may help ward off ailments before they begin. Proper spinal alignment now may delay or prevent degenerative bone or joint disease, such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. In addition to maintaining children’s health, regular visits to the office will help instill the value of proactive health care in kids. They’ll be more likely to monitor and manage their health as they grow up and less likely to be afraid or in denial of any health problems. Encouraging good lifelong health habits is one of chiropractic’s best benefits for kids.
PRENATAL CHIROPRACTIC CARE
This type of care is essential to consider, because during pregnancy, there are several physiological and endocrinological changes that occur in preparation for creating the environment for the developing baby. Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is another reason to obtain chiropractic care during pregnancy. When the pelvis is misaligned, it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery. This can affect the mother’s ability to have a natural, non-invasive birth. Breech and posterior positions can interfere with the natural ease of labor and lead to interventions such as C-sections. In summary, chiropractic care during pregnancy can provide benefits such as: Maintaining a healthier pregnancy, controlling symptoms of nausea, reducing the time of labor and delivery, relieving back, neck or joint pain, and preventing a potential cesarean delivery.
Whether stress surrounds your career, relationships, health, finances, or simply the daily grind, spending time in silence where you have the chance to analyze your life is an investment that is more than worthwhile. This is a serious issue, because with increased exposure to chronic stress, there is potential for life-threatening consequences such as: depression, diabetes, hair loss, heart disease, hyperthyroidism, obesity, obsessive-compulsive or anxiety disorder, sexual dysfunction, tooth and gum disease, and ulcers; to name a few. In this case it is important to teach people proper techniques that allow them to either eliminate stress or learn to live with stressful challenges in such a way that they no longer play such a critical role in their lives. Therefore, please contact the office today in order to schedule your complete consultation and evaluation.
