Preventative care in the United States is cheaper and easier for the patient. Yes, many patients skip their annual check-up and only roll into the doctor’s office when they have a serious problem. This is called reactive treatment or reactive medicine. In chiropractic care, many patients only make an appointment when they start experiencing severe pain that is too much to handle. With regular adjustments, you might never experience this sort of pain. Here are a few ways that chiropractic care at Arndt Chiropractic Center can help people of all ages.
Newborns - Chiropractic care for newborns is very soft and controlled. Rather than an adjustment, the treatment is more like a soft massage for the baby. Birth is painful for moms, but it can also leave 90% of newborns misaligned. This misalignment displays in the form of colic or failure or difficulty breastfeeding. By getting chiropractic care, these symptoms can be reduced or eliminated.
Kids - Did you know chiropractic care has been shown to prevent ear infections? If a couple adjustments a year prevents your kids from the excruciating pain involved with these infections, isn’t it all worth it? Other benefits include fewer sick days from school, better sleeping, improved mood, and less or elimination of bed-wetting. Many kids experience growing pains; chiropractic care can help reduce these pains and enhance a child’s flexibility.
Teenagers - The teen years are often when kids are growing quickly. This is when poor posture and back problems begin. Why not stop the slouch before it becomes a habit? Many teens are involved in sports or other extracurricular activities. By getting chiropractic adjustments, teens are less likely to become injured. If any injury does occur, chiropractic care will promote a quicker and healthier healing process.
Adults - Any untreated posture habits become more serious in adulthood. Adults spend long periods of time relatively inactive sitting at desks. Chiropractic care can treat insomnia, reduce headaches, prevent pain, stress, and depression. Make sure to get care during the adult years to ensure a healthier and happier body during the senior years.
Seniors - Regular adjustments on senior citizens can help prevent injuries and restore lost balance and coordination skills.
