Chiropractic Care is for Everyone

Chiropractic care is often misunderstood to benefit only the elderly or those with back injuries. In reality, however, chiropractic care can be beneficial for all ages.

Babies and Children

Nervous system disorders in babies and older children can sometimes lead to health issues such as irritability, colic, sleep difficulties, digestive problems, asthma, headaches, and developmental and behavioral problems. As chiropractic care deals with the nervous system, it can often resolve many of these issues. A common misconception of chiropractic care is that it's rough and painful. Especially when dealing with children, chiropractors take extra care to be gentle.


Chiropractic care can be beneficial for treating many men's health issues. Back pain is one of the most common health problems in men that can, unfortunately, become a disability if not properly treated. The chiropractor realigns the vertebrae through spinal adjustment. The result is improvement in spinal column function. Spinal alignment improves muscle strength in the back and allows the bones, muscles and ligaments to once again effectively work together. Men often suffer tension headaches resulting from stress on the job. Through proper spinal adjustment, blood flow to the head is increased, and the incidence of headaches is decreased.


Many women's health problems can be alleviated with chiropractic care. Headaches suffered during menstrual periods and pregnancy can often be relieved by chiropractic care, as the doctor focuses on the spinal connection to the head through nerves and blood vessels. Women have a far greater risk of developing osteoporosis than men, and the emphasis on good posture in chiropractic care can be an important step in preventing this condition.


The elderly can realize a number of health benefits from chiropractic care. Balance and coordination can be improved by stimulation of the joint receptors in the spine. This not only results in improved coordination but also a decreased likelihood of potentially disabling falls.
