Five Ways That Family Chiropractic Care Can Benefit You
One of the greatest aspects of chiropractic is how it can be modified and customized for each patient. Every family member can find ways to better their health, whether it be a young athlete building their strength, an older grandparent recovering their balance, or a parent lessening their recovery time. At Allen County Family and Sports Chiropractic, we’ve had years of experience treating Fort Wayne families, and we can provide you with specialized care.
Not just for adults
Chiropractic is often associated with treating back pain, and while that is a major part of the practice, that’s just the beginning. Adults can underestimate how much strain a child’s body can undergo with constant growth, rough play, sports, and common accidents. Children are hard on their bodies! According to the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, children can see these results from visiting with a chiropractor:
- Deeper and more consistent sleep
- Stronger immune system
- Improved behavior
Children may not recognize when something is wrong with their bodies, or they may not have the words to express their worries. This is why seeing a spinal expert can ensure healthy development. The spinal cord is full of nerves that connect throughout the body, so it is vital that posture and vertebrae are regularly corrected.
Maintain youthful energy
We are all seeking ways to stay young, to continually improve our mental and physical health. But we cannot ignore the stress of day-to-day life, nor the exertion we inflict on our bodies in that quest.
What achievements are on your bucket list? Running a half-marathon? Hitting a bench press PR? Maybe just playing a game of tennis without your wrist hurting?
As our bodies age and change, we need to be able to adapt our lifestyles and habits to be on the best path. Setting new goals gives us something to strive for, but those challenges also need to be realistic, and we need to be adequately prepared for them. A chiropractor can help point and correct misalignments or problems you may not even be aware of.
Prevent and Treat Pain
Studies have reported up to 20% of Americans have chronic pain. While not all discomfort can be treated, chiropractic can help lessen the severity, or build up muscles around the place of injury. In a 2017 report, the American College of Physicians published that chiropractic is a method for treating chronic lower back pain.
Not only can chiropractors help you recover from injury, but they can stop damage happening in the first place. Increasing your flexibility, familiarity with pressure, and nutrition can prepare your body for building up your strength, speed, and reaction time without harming yourself.
Holistic, natural treatment
One of the most appealing aspects of chiropractic is how it is drug-free, and built around your lifestyle. Chiropractic doctors consider your medical history, past experience, lifestyle, and conduct a preliminary examination before performing any adjustments or providing advice. Bodily pain is often given a default answer of ‘medication’, which can lead to complications, side-effects, and unseen consequences. But with chiropractic, all treatment is personal, intrinsic, and designed to help encourage your body to perform.
