When it comes to family, we only want what is best for our loved ones. We often question why a baby is crying, or when a child has an upset stomach. Did they sneak a piece of candy from our front desk, or is it truly something more than just a sugary substance? As adults, we are able to draw conclusions onto what type of care we would like to seek out when we deal with our own pain. And if we haven’t experienced a certain type of care first hand, we’re usually a bit more cautious when introducing someone else to it first.
At Exuberance Chiropractic & Wellness Center, we specialize in family care. Many individuals we see end up referring their family members to our office because of their confidence within our doctors. We understand that people may question bringing a child to our office, or even making an appointment for themselves. It’s completely natural to be skeptical, but it should be noted that many benefits may come from chiropractic care. “Chiropractic is a way to allow natural movement of the spine and ensure that the body is functioning optimally,” says Dr. Christie.
In fact, we see patients for a multitude of reasons, at almost any stage in their life, from infants to the elderly. Dr. Christie’s youngest patient was 24-hours old, coming straight from the hospital for an exam. “Many parents do not realize how much trauma a baby can go through during the birthing process,” she adds. Chiropractic care at this age can benefit fussy babies struggling with acid reflux, gas, ear infections, and even sleep deprivation. If your child practices sports or even has a difficult time focusing in class, seeing one of our chiropractors may help them in these areas as well.
As we adults age, minor injuries ignored in the past can begin to resurface. “When an individual doesn’t have consistent chiropractic care throughout his or her life, they can have multiple issues such as unstable ligaments and herniated discs,” says Dr. Devin. “These issues can develop into severe pain, numbness, tingling, or even weakness.” This is why it is important to have a regular spinal check by your chiropractor. Seniors too may find a solution through chiropractic to help improve their balance, or find safer alternatives for stretching and exercise.
Whether it be a concern for yourself or your child, our chiropractors here at Exuberance will be able to feel out the problem. Everybody deserves a healthy body!
