Chiropractic 101- Who needs it? Why do I need it?

Chiropractic care is for everyone. From babies to grandma’s and grandpa’s, chiropractic benefits everyone with a live nervous system.

7 benefits

The nervous system controls and coordinates every function in our body. That means, the nerves in our body tell our heart to beat, our lungs to breathe, our stomach to digest, and our muscles to move just to name a few.

Subluxations are caused by stress; stress being: physical, chemical and emotional.

If subluxations are caused by stress, then why do babies need chiropractic?
Babies experienc9-22-14e their first subluxation during the birth process. The birthing process involves a lot of twisting and pulling of baby’s head that can cause trauma to a newborn baby’s neck.

What is the first thing they tell someone holding a newborn baby?

Make sure you support it’s head….because it is it’s life-line. That is why it is so important that children are checked in our office, as early as possible, so that they can grow up with health and healing from Above-Down-Inside-Out (ADIO).

Proper Structure=Proper Function….what does that mean?
Arc of LifeIn our spine we have 3 curvatures that develop when we are babies. The curve in our neck and lower back is called the lordosis, and the curve in our middle back is called the kyphosis. Each of these curves have a range of degrees when measured that is considered normal.

If the curvatures have too much curve or too little curve, that will affect how well the nerves are able to function. The picture to 10-2-14the right shows the 4 phases of degeneration.

Phase 1-3 happens when there isn’t proper structure, when there have been lots of stress, and when we don’t take care of our spine.

Phase 1-3 is where degeneration of the spine occurs. This is where arthritis starts, and once it starts, it is irreversible damage to the spine. Chiropractic care can’t reverse the degenerative process, but, it can prevent furthering of spinal degeneration.

What phase are you?
