The Spinal Column
Have You missed the boat.... Each year as our practice grows more and more information becomes available documenting the tremendous benefits of chiropractic care for you and your family. By creating this blog post I hope that it will provide some valuable information when making decisions regarding YOUR health care needs....
Age 0-20 years
Chronic recurring "Otitis Media" or middle ear infections may be caused by improper drainage of the deep cervical lymphatics. Reduced drainage causes decreased lymphatic flow from the Eustachian tubes causing fluid to back up into the middle ear making it the perfect environment for bacteria and viruses to grow. Chiropractic restores proper cervical spine and muscle function to occur allowing the child's lymphatic drainage system to work hence reducing chronic ear infections.
Age 20-40 years
Do you suffer from chronic persistent low back pain?... The latest research from the chiropractic and medical community has reached the conclusion that "there is little direct evidence that most back pain comes from a direct injury or repetitive stress trauma... More and more evidence supports the fact that most episodes of low back pain come from NONSPECIFIC daily activities such as doing household chores, carrying the kids, bringing in groceries and poor daily postures....
Two thirds of the population who have had an episode of back pain in the past year can be expected to have some repeat symptoms every year.
Age 40-60 years
Aging baby boomers are going to be considering Chiropractic Care... A major study shows that the most disabling and chronic cause of disability for our baby boomers is musculoskeletal disorders by a wide margin. These disorders include osteoarthritis, stenosis, neuropathy and various other back disorders.
Age 60 and beyond
Did you know that 30% of all seniors who still live in the community over the age of 65 fall every year and by the age of 80, 50% fall at least once per year. Serious falls can lead to further health issues for the elderly. Chiropractic care is a wonderful adjunct to a senior's health care regimen as it promotes proper joint health, flexibility and motion. "A joint that can't move can't nourish itself"....
As you can see Chiropractic Care can be a valuable addition to your healthcare.
