  According to a recent article in Prevention magazine, most people assume that chiropractors are good only for neck and back pain. And while they do treat a lot of that, there's plenty else they can do. Chiropractic focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems and how they affect the rest of the body. "Many people don't know that most chiropractors have postgraduate training and board certification in areas such as pediatrics, obstetrical care, clinical nutrition, neurology, orthopedics, physical rehabilitation, sports/athletic injury, and acupuncture.  The article went on to list 6 things that chiropractors can be helpful with.  Low back pain, Neck Pain, Pregnancy, Digestive Issues, Headaches and Blood Pressure.

 

In my over 30 years of practice, my interests in health care lean towards a few areas. Therefore I decided to seek extra training and specialize in areas of chiropractic that I am interested in.  My specialties in my practice are pregnancy care, pediatrics (the care of children's spines and related conditions and post concussion care.

Here is a quick snapshot of the hows and whys these areas are important to me.

Pregnancy care:  Chiropractic is drug free and so should be the 9 months of pregnancy. Chiropractic care helps with aches and pains associated with pregnancy. Adjustments balance the pelvis and help with an easier delivery and less labor time. Chiropractic specialized training helps with baby's in the breech position by correcting uterine constraint round ligament issues. Improved nerve flow to the unborn child is a major benefit towards health.

Pediatrics: A lot of children have nerve pressure in their spines that can lead to dysfunction which contributes to many childhood ailments such as colic, ear infections, digestive issues and respiratory difficulties. Childhood spinal misaglinments can lead to scoliosis as well.

Concussions: Post concussion syndrome leads to neck pain, headaches, dizziness, focus and concentration issues. My extra training in concussion care allows me to check the cranial bones for fixations, cervical spine for alignement and neuro system for interference.  Concussion screening for sports is also an important ppart of care.  It is extremely important to know if you have suffered a concussion and concussion protocol screening is a valuable tool.
