A lot of parents don’t know about the long-term issues caused by misalignments in a child’s spine. And kids have trouble expressing the type of pain they feel or simply ignore when their body is experiencing significant discomfort. Children’s bodies are always growing, and that can lead to significant stress. A misalignment can start as early as in the womb. At birth babies have been curled and confined in a small space. And then they undergo significant force when being delivered. You can easily imagine how this can lead to structural imbalances. And any type of disruptions in the spine can cause babies to have trouble with their nervous system.

Crying is the only way that babies can express discomfort.

Chiropractic Care During Preganancy
Chiropractic care can actually be very beneficial during pregnancy. A healthy pregnancy almost always comes with some degree of discomfort, but our chiropractic team has the experience to provide you a tailored plan to help you have a smooth and pleasant a pregnancy as possible.
To prepare for pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes a significant change in the balance as a result of weight gain, and the placement of this additional weight. This weight adds stress to the pelvic region and often results in a substantial amount of pressure and a slight curvature of the back. Up to 7 out of 10 women deal with significant back pain during their pregnancy, and this discomfort is often worse during the third trimester due to the growth of the baby.
By seeking chiropractic care proactively, you can both ensure the healthy development of your baby and your well-being. The adjustments for pregnant women are different from typical chiropractic care to ensure the health of your baby. Frequently, mothers who visit us find that the chiropractic care they experienced helped them avoid painkillers during pregnancy altogether. Research has also shown that chiropractic care can actually reduce the time spent in labor.

Are you struggling with scoliosis? More often than not, scoliosis develops as a slight curvature of the spine that worsens over time. For an official scoliosis diagnosis, it is required for there to be a 60 degree or sharper curve of the spine. When scoliosis has reached this point there are often painful symptoms. If this abnormal curvature goes untreated, severe damage can occur to internal organs.Thankfully, if the initial curvature is cared for proactively, you are able to keep it from developing into scoliosis. In most cases, a slight curvature of the spine starts with one vertebra being out of place. When this happens, muscles in the spine tend to favor certain parts of the spine and create imbalances. As this occurs, the spine starts curving to compensate for all the slight imbalances and misalignments in the spine. While scoliosis tends to affect adolescents disproportionately, it can still manifest in older adults. As adults age, their vertebrae tend to slowly degenerate. Without proper maintenance care, this degeneration can be sped up by disorder like osteoporosis. Eventually, this weakening of the spine cause imbalances that turn into the curvatures characterized by scoliosis.
Scoliosis cannot be fixed simply by being mindful and attempting to stand up straighter. But, research has shown that chiropractic care is effective in treating scoliosis. An x-ray can be performed by your doctor to determine what is the best way to treat your scoliosis. Today Disc, Bone & Joint Chiropractic Treatment Center in Lexington is also experienced in assessing your balance to detect scoliosis quickly.
Tingling In Ears
A large number of patients who say they experience vertigo are usually experiencing one of two different phenomena. On one hand, individuals report feeling dizzy when they are feeling faint and other report feeling as if the room around them is moving in a circular fashion. Vertigo is used to describe the latter. Delineating both types of phenomena is important since each condition requires a different type of therapy. When the body is out of balance, the muscle tissues throughout must work harder to compensate. While the body is resilient, eventually the imbalances begin to take a toll on health. In the case of vertigo, the body’s imbalances have begun to impede the nervous system from properly communicating with the brain to achieve balance.
By realigning your spine with the help of a chiropractor, it is possible to restore the proper function of the nervous system and find relief from vertigo. Vertigo is a condition that can range from being mildly frustrating to completely debilitating. As such, it is imperative to visit a chiropractor if you are feeling any of the following signs or symptoms to ensure your condition does not worsen. With our comprehensive approach that takes into account your medical history and a careful examination, we are able to pinpoint the cause of your vertigo and provide a tailored treatment plan that works.
