CHILDREN AND ORTHOPEDIC HEALTH
Adults aren’t the only ones who need chiropractic care. Without good daily habits, children can find themselves seeking care for issues correlated with poor posture, backpack strains, and sports-related injuries. Parents can help their children to take control of their posture, the size, weight, and contents of their school backpacks, and to ensure that their kids are safely equipped and prepared for sports.
UNDERSTANDING YOUR CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Back pain, joint pain, sprains and strains, sciatica, soft tissue disorders, neck pain, headaches, and migraines…these are only some of the ailments that chiropractic care can treat. Doctors of chiropractic are educated on the interactions of the spine and central nervous system, as well as how musculoskeletal disorders affect overall wellness. As important as a balanced, nutritious diet and exercise are to feeling well, a healthy nervous system is essential to good health.
KEEPING YOUR BACK HEALTHY
Just like in caring for the rest of your body, you maintain good back health. In addition to practicing good posture, drinking the daily recommended amount of water is both healthful and supports your back. Regular exercise and physical activity strengthen the muscles that support your spine and help you maintain a healthy weight, reducing back strain. Sleep better by finding a comfortable position and investing in a quality mattress and supportive pillows.
DURING YOUR FIRST VISIT
Your initial visit to Sea Spine Orthopedic Institute allows our team of qualified professionals to examine you thoroughly to make an expert diagnosis. Next, your chiropractor develops a personalized plan of treatment to address your symptoms. Depending upon the severity of your symptoms and your condition, you may begin treatment the same day. If you have a chiropractic adjustment on your first visit, know that chiropractic techniques emphasize the use of minimal force and gentle pressure. A chiropractic adjustment very rarely causes discomfort. You may hear a popping sound during your adjustment, which is normal — this is the release of tiny pockets of gas from your joints.
