Can Chiropractic Help Kids and Ear Infections?
Chiropractic adjustments allow for proper alignment of the cranium and the vertebrae in the neck, reduce accompanying muscle spasms, allow lymph drainage, and restore the proper nerve supply needed for optimum functioning of the structures in the head and neck, including the ear canal. Subluxations, or misalignments of the spine, may reduce the healing capacity of the body. Chiropractic adjustments may allow the body to self-heal by allowing full expression of the nervous system, which controls many of the bodily functions.
What is Spinal Manipulation?
If you have never had an adjustment, don’t worry. It’s quick, and mostly painless. It sounds worse than it is. Remember, your chiropractor spent years learning how to functionally assess and care for the spine – so relax and let them do it. After a chiropractic adjustment, most people report instant relief or reduction of pain, tension and stiffness in their spine. The increased spinal range of motion that follows an adjustment allows for increased spinal flexibility. Because the joints are moving more freely, the stress on muscles is reduced, they are able to work more efficiently and become less irritated.
What is Therapeutic Ultrasound?
ABC News said: Ultrasound can also be helpful in acute injuries for non-thermal effects, meaning no heat is generated, but it can help increase blood flow so that way inflammation or swelling can be reduced.
What is Electronic Muscle Stimulation?
Electronic Muscle Stimulation is designed to painlessly fatigue the tight muscles surrounding a joint through multiple twitches per second (depending on the settings). This is not painful, however, patients report these twitches as tingling sensations as the muscles contract involuntarily. The rapid muscle contractions have an analgesic effect. After a 20-minute session with either of these therapies patients report decreased resting muscle tension and improved mobility in fixated areas of the spine.
Is Chiropractic Safe For Kids?
Chiropractic’s purpose is to remove interferences to the natural healing power running through the body.When that power is unleashed the healing that results may be profound.
Today we find more parents bringing their children to chiropractors for day-to-day health concerns we’re all familiar with: colds, sore throats, ear infections, fevers, colic, asthma, tonsillitis, allergies, bed-wetting, infections, pains, falls, stomach-aches, and the hundred and one little and big things children go through as they grow up.
