Your Doctor of Chiropractic, Jon Scott, can help everyone, from a newborn just hours old to a toddler or teen, adults of all ages, and even pregnant women.

What is Family Chiropractic?

At every stage of our lives, things happen that can affect your spinal alignment. Even the process of being born may cause a slight misalignment of the spine resulting in colic, digestion and elimination issues, breastfeeding difficulties and more. Toddlers just learning to walk will spend a lot of time falling, potentially causing repetitive stress to the spine. Teens playing sports may experience the same, and, of course, adults often suffer strains from lifting or turning wrong, falls, and other typical adult spinal challenges.

Benefits of Family Care: Chiropractic Therapy for Everyone

Pampering for Newborns and Toddlers: From newborn being born either naturally or Cesarean to toddlers falling down while learning to walk, chiropractic care looks after the smallest of spine misalignments in babies and children. Children’s bodies are under a lot of stress while they are in a state of development, and keeping them healthy requires maintenance. Our therapies include a gentle examination and and non-invasive therapy to correct any underlying issues before they can cause any long term developmental issues.

“Ointment” for Every Teen: Teens usually play contact sports or get involved in many physical activities which can often cause strains or injuries. Additionally, wearing heavy backpacks daily and sitting /slouching in desks or in front of a computer all day, they can develop bad posture. Throughout childhood, there are numerous opportunities where the spine can become misaligned. Excessive pressure on the spine and other joints may result in pain and impairment, and can affect aspects of their development. Our chiropractic massages and corrective exercises help them in retaining their optimal health and posture.

After-care for Adults: As we naturally age, our bodies become less flexible or resilient to normal strains of sports injuries or physical activity. The causes are many, and the results range from slight discomfort to complete immobilization. Regular activities like moving, sitting, bending down, can prove to be difficult for adults, resulting in back pain, muscle pain, or aching joints. Misalignments (subluxations) of the vertebrae in the neck and lower back are responsible for a vast majority of chronic pain. If the spaces where the nerves leave the spine become narrowed because the vertebrae or discs are out of position, the nerve can become irritated, and often produces pain down its entire path. We offer non-invasive chiropractic adjustments to eliminate pain and deliver long term relief where one can return to a normal, healthy lifestyle.

Preventive care for Pregnant Women: A woman’s body undergoes a number of different changes to accommodate the growing baby. The physical stress of pregnancy can lead to a great deal of discomfort. From performing daily tasks with the added weight, and onto labor, a woman will experience low back pain, cramps, discomfort in pelvis joints, and other related issues. Chiropractic care for pregnancy can be a great source of relief for many of these issues in a safe and effective manner without the use of pain medication. Many women also comment that the birthing process was easier after having undergone chiropractic care. Postpartum care can assist in realigning the body after the pregnancy and speed up the transition back to a healthy post-pregnancy body.

Healing for Elderly People: Senior citizens need extra care with every step they take, be it in their homes or outside. Even the slightest of misplaced foot or arm can cause problems in their spine. Due to the wide range of causative factors, back pain and abnormal motion in the joints may develop gradually or come on suddenly. Symptoms of a shoulder injury are occasionally very subtle, but even these can develop into major issues. All symptoms should be monitored carefully and treated promptly to avoid progression of the problem or a more serious, permanent injury. Our chiropractic adjustments and corrective exercises can help in reducing pain or swelling and making movement easier.
