Who do chiropractors treat?

Chiropractic treatment is suitable for people of all ages, including children, pregnant women, and the elderly.

As children are physically active and prone to incidents of falling down and bruising that may lead to back and neck pain, stiffness, and soreness, seeing a chiropractor can help. Chiropractic care is always adapted to individual patient, so in cases of children, it will be gentle.

Pregnant women can benefit from chiropractic care too. It relieves back pain, gives the baby room to grow in the womb, and brings the mother’s body back into alignment post-delivery.

How do I know if I need to see a chiropractor?

If you’ve had a serious accident, urgently need surgery, or currently suffering from a life threatening illness, seek proper medical attention first. But, if your conditions still haven’t improved after getting all the medical care, chiropractic can be of help.

You can still see a chiropractor even if you’re healthy.

Sometimes, you wouldn’t know that you have a disorder of the joints, muscles, or nerves until it’s at an advanced, painful stage. Just like having periodic dental appointments to have your teeth checked, regular visits to your chiropractor can detect related health conditions early. This can help intercept the development of more intolerable pain episodes.

Remember, your spine is prone to wear and tear, just like other parts of your body. So, it should be accorded the same kind of attention too.
