2024-01-04T10:58:36-05:00

Have you considered chiropractic care for your child? You may think, “My child seems fine. Why would they need it?”   Pediatric chiropractic care can significantly benefit a child's health, development, and overall quality of life.

And let's face it: children are prone to getting hurt as they climb, run, and hurl themselves from all available surfaces!  Understanding Pediatric Chiropractic Adjustments Children’s bodies are usually more flexible than adults, and they often can be adjusted easily, experiencing minimal pressure without twisting, cracking, or popping.

“Chiropractic won’t work for me.” “I got adjusted, and it didn’t do any good.” Our mindsets play a big role in our health.  We may come to a doctor, or even a gym or nutritionist with certain expectations. You may anticipate certain results if you’ve been referred or have heard great things about a particular field, such as chiropractic.  Or maybe your mindset is rooted in desperation and exhaustion. If you’re at the end of your rope, then you’re tired of dealing with symptoms - you need relief and you need it yesterday! Whatever the case may be, often we approach [...]

Imagine you’re carrying some boxes down the stairs when you trip and fall on the last step. After picking yourself back up, you notice that your right ankle hurts, you look down and see that it’s completely swollen and red.

2022-04-01T14:26:01-04:00

How is chiropractic different than physiotherapy or osteopathic manipulations? This is a frequently Googled question that I wanted to address. First, these fields can all be very complimentary. Second, chiropractic could be the missing part of the puzzle for you! So why are chiropractic, physiotherapy, and osteopathy different fields? Let’s define these, as manual practitioners certainly have some similarities and overlap in what they practice.  Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (DOs) offer a wide spectrum of care, looking at the body on a cellular level.
