ACCIDENTS OR TRAUMA:
A car accident or simple fall can cause severe spinal stress and result in numerous subluxations. A fall even as a toddler or young child can cause or contribute to health problems later in life.
COMPETING IN SPORTS:
Even though sports help by exercising the body, it can also put stress on our spines. The vast majority of elite teams and athletes worldwide would not dream of competing without first having their chiropractic adjustment. Research shows that chiropractic care increases athletic performance by 17%.
Pregnancy is a time of hormonal changes that “loosen” your ligaments, preparing for birth. This coupled with the added weight can put a lot more stress on a spine and cause vertebral subluxations. Women under chiropractic care have easier births, have fewer complications, and have healthier children.
The birth process can be very traumatic for the baby and create spinal distortions; subluxations may be created which will alter the baby’s health.
Chiropractic has proven to have a profound effect on the health of children. In fact, children who have been followed under chiropractic care have been shown to have 5 times fewer health problems overall than the average child. It has shown to help problems such as asthma, concentration, ear infections, attention deficit disorder, bed-wetting, and so much more.
LIVING A STRESSFUL LIFE:
People that live lives that are routinely stressful, physically, emotionally, and/or chemically, will put stress on their spine and have an extremely high chance of developing vertebral subluxations. Over the months, or years, the health of this person will gradually decrease, as their decreased nerve supply will gradually degenerate their bodies. By removing these subluxations, with spinal adjusting, these people can live a better and healthier life.
PEOPLE WITH PAIN OR DISCOMFORT:
There are many people in our society who “put up” with many symptoms not knowing that they can have an easier life and better health. As the months or years pass by, these people find they are taking more and more drugs to get rid of their pain, meanwhile their problems are actually getting worse. They can be healthier through chiropractic.
