When you think about wellness care, you probably envision trips to the doctor for routine physicals and health examinations. However, your wellness plan is lacking if it stops with traditional medical check-ups. Chiropractic should be a routine part of your life, regardless of how healthy your spine is. There are many advantages to including chiropractic treatments in your family's health care.
To start, chiropractic adjustments help to keep the vertebrae and discs in the spine in proper alignment. Regular spinal adjustments may result in improved posture and less pain while performing day to day tasks. In fact, chiropractic adjustments are beneficial for patients of all ages, starting as young as just a few weeks old.
Chiropractic is also a helpful addition to a pregnancy care plan. The added weight associated with pregnancy -- particularly the last trimester -- can place strain on the muscles, spine and back. A chiropractor can provide musculoskeletal pregnancy care by continuously monitoring the spine for subluxations and changes to alignment. Chiropractic is safe for pregnant women, and may even make sleeping more comfortable.
Preventing and Treating Personal Injury
A personal injury can affect multiple areas of the body, and left untreated, can cause pain and symptoms that become increasingly strong. Instead of taking over-the-counter and prescription pain relief drugs, chiropractic can provide natural pain relief by treating the symptoms at their source. Our Eagle chiropractor Dr. Ellison is trained and experienced in detecting personal injuries and customizing a personalized treatment plan for correcting them.
Even if you are not suffering from an injury, or if you have already recovered from a previous one, frequent visits to the chiropractor can still help prevent future injuries to the bones, joints and muscles. Chiropractic adjustments help ensure every vertebrae and disc in the spine is in its proper place, which decreases the chances of developing a serious injury in the event of a car accident, workplace accident or sports injury.
