What is Family Chiropractic?

While many people think of chiropractic care as a treatment for back pain, it can be a valuable piece of a family's overall wellness. Each year, more and more Americans are trusting doctors of chiropractic to give their families a conservative, drug-free approach to specific conditions such as ADHD, autism, ear infections, asthma, and headaches. In a report released in July 2016, the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Americans spent more than $28 billion on complementary health procedures such as chiropractic care, massage therapy, and herbal supplements. According to the same survey, 8.4 percent of American adults used chiropractic services in 2012 with 3.3 percent of American children receiving treatment.

What role does chiropractic care play in my family's overall wellness?

Subluxation is the misalignment of the spine that results in stress on the overall body. Daily stressors such as sports, technology use, typical childhood bumps and bruises, in addition to simple childbirth, can cause subluxation resulting in seemingly unrelated medical conditions ranging from difficulty breastfeeding in infants to chronic ear infections in toddlers and children. ADHD, autism, asthma, sinus infections, headaches, and sensory processing disorders can all be positively impacted by chiropractic health. In fact, many of these health concerns are manifestations of the body's inability to process information through the nervous system. Fortunately, chiropractic care corrects subluxations thus allowing the nervous system to communicate freely and the body to function at an optimum level.

Is chiropractic care safe for my children?

The evaluation, diagnosis, and care of children are well within the scope of chiropractic care. However, doctors of chiropractic, like Dr. Travis at Spring into Life Chiropractic, who actively participate in the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association are informed of the latest tools and techniques to best serve the youngest patients. Dr. Travis's no-crack approach uses state-of-the-art technology to allow the body to move the spine into place without bending, twisting, or the dramatic popping sound associated with traditional adjustment. This gentle process is both safe and effective for children and infants and provides them with the spinal alignment necessary for better total body wellness.
