Chiropractic in Adulthood

Work, home, children, social activities, concerns or problems.... many people suffer from stress.

Stress can be Physical: accidents, repetitive movements, bad posture, physical work;

Emotional: concerns, family, children, the couple, the economy;

Chemical: too much caffeine, sugar, tobacco, unhealthy diet.

Chronic stress can lead you to suffer from insomnia, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, intestinal problems.

Whatever the cause, the effects are very harmful to our nervous system. According to the World Health Organization WHO, health is a "state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or disability".

Addressing health from the HOLISTIC point of view involves the following factors:

  • Healthy living habits (food, sleep, exercise, stress management)
  • Health is not merely the absence of disease, it prioritizes the welfare.
  • The human body is a WHOLE, so a single component that is not in equilibrium affects the health of the rest.

Chiropractic advocates the importance of the nervous system in regulating body functions so that the WHOLE functions optimally.

Chiropractic and the Elderly

For those who refuse to see their quality of life decreasing with the passing of the years and want to add not only more years to their life, but also more life to their years, Chiropractic can give them the support they seek.

At this age the body becomes more delicate and fragile and metabolism slows down. A weaker skeleton tolerates worse an aggressive drug treatment and surgery. At this stage, you need a more conservative approach with no side effects, one that respects the natural physiology rather than alter it to suit the individual needs of each person, and this is what Chiropractic care can offer a patient.

Everyone, especially the elderly, can be greatly benefited from chiropractic care, changing the dynamics of being over-medicated and the problems involved, such as addiction and the harmful side effects.

Our older patients find in chiropractic care a safe and natural way to reach greater vitality, more mobility, and a more positive outlook on life. They sleep better, are less tired, and have more desire to go out and do activities and socialize. Many people find a remarkable improvement with their chronic conditions that had already been diagnosed as unrecoverable, and what's even better, have diminished or even eliminated their medication intake.

Chiropractic care not only helps the recovery of locomotive functions, but can help the body of the senior person to return to a higher level of vitality and health.

Children and Chiropractic

More and more parents recognize the need for their children to receive chiropractic care.  Just like all parents know the importance of taking their children to dental checkups, sight, and ears, they also know what it is perhaps the most important check-up of all: the revision of their spine.

Many people that suffer back problems in adulthood began in childhood. The first trauma that a baby can suffer occurs during delivery, especially if you have had to use forceps, suction cups, and if labor was long and difficult. As the child grows and develops his spine, he learns to hold his head, then to crawl, and finally to take their first steps. If there is trauma, the alignment of the spine and the nervous system are affected. This results in health problems like colic, allergies, asthma, ear infections, sleeping problems, hyperactivity, learning problems, enuresis (bedwetting), scoliosis, etc..

You do not have to wait until there is back pain to go to a Chiropractor. Children suffer dislocations due to falls, poor posture, learning to walk, cycling, heavy backpacks, etc..  Just like a silent dental decay, vertebral subluxation affects the entire body of the child without the effects being noticed.

A preventive hygiene of the spine is the key to optimal health. It is important to understand that chiropractic care does not mean disease. Its function is to examine the child’s column looking for subluxations that may be affecting the nervous system and therefore allowing the body to function properly. Vertebrae keep and protect the spinal cord, which transmits information from the brain to the various body parts. The nervous system controls and coordinates the function of all body systems: circulatory, respiratory, digestive, hormonal, immune system; therefore, any interference in the nerve transmission affects the normal functioning of the body and good child development.

Chiropractic acts on the nervous system, and this has a direct control over the immune system, therefore Chiropractic helps improve children's defenses.

Chiropractic care provides wellness naturally and has a preventive role of paramount importance to the quality of life of children and their school performance.

Los Jóvenes y la Escoliosis

Youth and Scoliosis

It is extremely important to check the children’s spine for the early detection of a possible scoliosis. Scoliosis is a lateral curvature of the spine that can occur in children from 8 years to adulthood. It usually develops during puberty or the period of rapid growth, and may be due to a genetic predisposition and usually occurs more in girls.

What signs reveal the existence of a scoliosis?

- One leg shorter than the other

- Walks funny

- Uneven hips

- Back Pain

- A shoulder higher than the other

- A palette and prominent chest when bending forward

- Visible curvature of the spine

- Uneven wearing out of the shoes

When left untreated, scoliosis can cause severe deformity, causing psychological distress and physical disability. The fact that the vertebrae are poorly positioned, affect the rib cage, thus compromising the heart and lungs.

Chiropractic treatment is a specific adjustment program that will help improve the function and structure of the spine, strengthening the soft surrounding tissue and improving posture. Thus, avoid aggressive treatments such as corset and surgery. Chiropractic treatment is therefore, the most natural solution for scoliosis.

Unfortunately, a large percentage of cases of scoliosis are detected when it is too late to correct it, but Chiropractic continues to offer significant prospects for improvement. That is why we insist on the importance of early detection and prevention.

La Quiropráctica y el Embarazo

Chiropractic and Pregnancy

During pregnancy, a woman's body undergoes extraordinary changes, both psychological and physiological, and perfectly adapts, thanks to its innate intelligence, to create a new being.

The ovaries secrete a hormone called relaxin that helps joints become more flexible and elastic. This process allows the spine to become more flexible and prepares the pelvic ligaments for childbirth. This flexibility can cause misalignment of the articulations and trigger back pain and, quite frequently, cause sciatic nerve impingement. Other problems that often occur during pregnancy are headaches, nausea and cramps.

Another important factor to consider is that the cephalic fetal positioning must be correct to facilitate delivery. If the mother’s spine is not aligned, then the correct positioning of the baby may not occur, resulting in a cesarean.

Chiropractic care is the natural choice, it is non-invasive, drug-free and 100% safe for the health of the mother and fetus. The spinal adjustment releases the tension of the nerves and aligns the spine and pelvis, it optimizes the functioning of the body and facilitates the delivery for the mother and baby.

Chiropractic and Sports

The practice of any sport requires the best possible physical conditions of the body to be able to function at full capacity. In countries where chiropractic care is more widespread, such as North America, Canada, Northern Europe, the high-level professional athletes are under chiropractic care throughout the year with maintenance as well as during competitions.  As a reference in Europe, the Italian soccer team, AC Milan, has a Chiropractor as the main responsible for their medical team.

It is normal for athletes to undergo a number of injuries resulting from the intensive practice of their sport throughout their professional life, and the find in the chiropractic care, the treatment necessary to recover from such injuries as well as preventing others. And more importantly is the ability of chiropractic care to maximize the performance of the organism.
