Chiropractic Care For the Entire Family

Why Chiropractic Care is for the Entire Family

Chiropractic treatment focuses on helping the body heal itself and function properly, providing a natural way to prevent and manage pain. Instead of masking symptoms, chiropractors aim to treat the root cause of the problem. Regardless of a person’s age, if you or a loved one are dealing with issues caused by stiff joints or muscles, meeting with a chiropractor at Cornerstone Chiropractic for quality treatment can speed up the healing process, reduce the chances of the issue recurring, and can decrease downtime. 

At Cornerstone, our holistic approach to Family Wellness Chiropractic Care helps patients achieve their health and wellness goals. While drugs can cause loss of concentration, addiction, and a wide range of side effects, chiropractic care can help the body to be more prepared for life’s challenges. 

Chiropractic treatment can benefit patients of any age. The long-lasting, positive aspects of treatment can help infants, adolescents, adults, and the elderly improve flexibility, sleep, energy, range of motion, and more. 

Why Chiropractic Care is for the Entire Family

At Cornerstone Chiropractic, we can tailor treatment programs to suit the needs of each patient. Our custom treatment plans allow children and adults to receive the most beneficial care based on their unique needs and reason for visit. Our chiropractors examine each patient to determine what their unique treatment needs are and provide care options that will help them to achieve their greatest wellness goals. 

Our chiropractors focus on a drug-free, hands-on approach to treating adults and children to improve immune and nervous system function. 

Addressing Pain and Disease 

If you often deal with symptoms such as headaches, backaches, or joint pain, but you have never seen a chiropractor for help, you may be missing out on a natural, effective way to manage your pain. Each year, millions of people all over the country benefit from chiropractic care. One of the best things about chiropractic adjustments is that they’re a natural, drug-free option for pain management. Treatment can help naturally improve problems such as:

  • Migraines/headaches
  • Neck pain 
  • Back pain 
  • Arthritis 
  • Ear infections 
  • Asthma 
  • Blood pressure 
  • Organ function 
  • Scoliosis 
  • Sciatica 

Despite the popularity of chiropractic treatment, there are still plenty of misconceptions about how chiropractic care can help, whether it’s safe, and what benefits it offers. 

Fortunately, treatment is safe for patients of all ages and can help infants, children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly improve their overall well-being.

Improving Strength and Mobility 

When performing physical activities, flexibility is key. A flexible body can allow us to age gracefully, can prevent injuries, and can even lessen growing pains. Spinal adjustment combined with stretches and exercising at home can make it easy to keep the body as limber as possible. 

Chiropractic treatment can address, and effectively treat a wide range of health problems ranging from back pain and migraines to digestive issues and more. Regardless of a person’s age, if they’re dealing with pain, discomfort, decreased range of motion, and inflammation, chiropractic treatment can set a person on their path to optimal health. 

Infant Care

Babies face many physical stresses, even before they’re born. In utero, the small space can cause a fetus to become stuck in a single spot for several months. A variety of fetal positions can also cause damage to the development of the spine. Additionally, the birthing process can place strain on the spine as well. As a result, many parents have an infant’s spine checked by a chiropractor as soon as possible after birth. 

During the first months of life, the adverse effects of a misalignment on the nervous system can result in many health issues that range from sleep irregularities and breastfeeding complications, to colic. By removing the interference from the central nervous system and freeing the joints, chiropractic treatment can address these issues and many more. 

Pediatric and Adolescent Care 

During the first five years of their lives, children experience rapid growth. While we often think of our children as fragile, chiropractic treatments for children are beneficial and perfectly safe for children and adolescents. When a child is learning how to walk, climb, and run, falls are common. A chiropractor at Cornerstone Chiropractic can examine a child to ensure that their bones are developing properly and that a rough fall did not cause nerve stress or a spinal misalignment. 

As a child continues to grow, they may find interest in sports such as baseball, soccer, football, or tennis. This is when it’s crucial that they receive chiropractic treatment to ensure that they continue to develop normally and there’s no injury that can cause serious harm. When it comes to full-contact sports, injuries are prevalent. Chiropractic treatment can speed up injury recovery and can strengthen core muscles to prevent injuries in the future. 

School-aged children are at an even higher risk of spinal challenges than infants. Heavy backpacks, participation in sports, climbing trees and exploring the world can place a lot of stress on a child’s nervous system and spine. 

The most common reason why parents take their child to see a chiropractor is physical injury. Even if a child doesn’t complain of back pain, it’s still important to have them checked out by a licensed chiropractor, to rule out a spinal misalignment. In some cases, a subluxation will not cause immediate symptoms. 

Keep in mind, chemical and emotional stress can also impact nervous system function, which is why chiropractic maintenance visits can be very beneficial, even if a child was not involved in a traumatic event. When visiting a chiropractor, they can identify and diagnose chronic spinal conditions, such as scoliosis, which can become aggravated by certain activities. 

Signs your child should be seen by a chiropractor include:
Growing pains

  • Complaints of pain 
  • Trouble sleeping 
  • Decreased mobility 
  • Their spine appears twisted
  • Your child has one shoulder that sits higher than the other 

Adult Care 

Many of us face aches and pains at some point in our lives. Routine chiropractic treatment can help ease the stresses that are placed on our bodies. Maintenance care can maintain optimal body function by providing regular spinal adjustments, regardless of whether you’re having issues with chronic pain, inflammation or decreased range of motion. With ongoing maintenance care, even if you experience a recurrence of pain and discomfort, those episodes are often minimized. 

We often recommend regular adjustments to our patients. We can determine a corrective care plan that’s tailored specifically to your wellness and health goals. With regular treatment, we can identify any health issues early on, while ensuring your spine remains in proper alignment.

A maintenance visit can include massage, strength exercises and stretches, and regular spinal adjustments. During a visit, our chiropractors can help treat and strengthen your spine, joints, and muscles, so you can effectively and easily perform daily life activities. The better you maintain yourself, the more you can avoid unnecessary surgery and prevent a serious injury in the future. 

Elderly Care 

As we grow older, our bodies can degrade in terms of range of motion, strength, and mobility. Chiropractic treatment is one of the best ways to make the aging process easier on the body. Treatment can improve balance and flexibility, offers pain relief, improves coordination, and can lower rates of arthritis.
