Is it right for me?
Absolutely! In fact, we encourage it. Chiropractic adjustments can be beneficial to all ages, and are very safe. Pregnant women are encouraged to visit our office, as adjustments are a great and all natural way to deal with pain caused by pregnancy.
Certainly! Similarly to treating an elderly patient, we would alter the pressure and force used during the adjustment to an appropriate level for the child. In our office, children as young as two and three come in for regular adjustments and remain patients of ours for many years. Some even start in the womb!
For Sure! With High school sports seeming to be increasingly more dangerous and sports related injuries on the rise, it seems that no teen is completely immune to injury. It only makes sense for student athletes to prevent injury and remain healthy. With routine chiropractic care teens are able to increase posture, mobillity, and practice an all-natural pain management alternative.
Yes! Although chiropractic care is not the same for everyone, each patient that steps into our office is dealing with different areas and levels of pain. Individualized care and treatment plans are created to fit the needs of each individual. Some of our patients are here because of an accident, while others simply wish to feel more comfortable on a day-to-day basis. The beauty of chiropractic care is that it can be crafted and molded to fit the needs of many different scenarios and individuals.
Of Course! Typically the reason an elderly person seeks chiropractic care is for pain in the muscles and/or bones, with back pain being the most common complaint. In fact, 6% of older adults have disabling back pain and 23% have non-disabling back pain. However, many patients now see chiropractors for help with their ongoing health, whether as a treatment solution, complementary treatment, or for prevention of problems. Regardless of why, our first step is always to complete a Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) or Functional Movement Screens (FMS) to determine the best plan of action for each of our patients!
