Who We SeeChiropractic is Safe for Everyone!
Chiropractic for Elderly
Elderly patients are often the most grateful patients, receiving much needed relief from back and neck aches, arthritic pain, headaches, digestive problems and insomnia. Chiropractic treatment are safe for those with arthritis, low bone density and osteoporosis.
Chiropractic for the elderly is also important in maintaining balance and coordination to help to minimize the risk of falls. Older people are at greatest risk of sustaining an injury from a fall. At least one in four older people have a fall each year. These falls can be reduced by ensuring that the spine and nervous system is functioning correctly.
Chiropractic for Pregnancy
During your pregnancy dramatic postural and hormonal changes will take place in your body in a short period of time. As such, the potential for spinal joint misalignment, muscles strain, stress and chemical imbalance is higher than at other times in your life. This may result in a broad range of symptoms including, but not limited to back and leg pain as well as impacting the development and positioning of the baby for labour. Therefore the focus of chiropractic during pregnancy is to improve the health and wellbeing of the mother and baby. A healthy mum has a positive impact on the health of the baby.
Chiropractic for Children
As caring parents we are often confronted with decisions regarding the health and well being of our children. Chiropractic for children aims to reduce the incidence of illness by maximizing your child's health potential. A wide range of childhood symptoms may respond favourably to chiropractic treatment. These include migraines, gastric reflux, recurrent chest & throat infections, hyperactivity, bed wetting, arm and leg pain, headaches, asthma, poor co-ordination, sleeping problems, irritability, visual problems, digestive disorders and scoliosis
Chiropractic for Athletes
Chiropractic aims to empower athletes to achieve peak performance naturally. Addressing the injury is only one aspect of helping athletes return back to function.
