Great Chiropractic Treatment for the Whole Family
Keeping the entire family in good health is a trying task, but we at Foundation Chiropractic are here to help with any number of wellness-related problems that may be facing you and yours — including children, who may face a variety of health problems that chiropractic care can help. From bedwetting relief to scoliosis treatment, we offer a broad array of pediatric chiropractic services, as well as therapies for issues other family members may face, such as allergies or general susceptibility to illness.
Personable ADHD Assistance
Though we at Foundation Chiropractic do not treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, many parents have found chiropractic care’s reductions in nervous system disturbances to be a valuable non-medication service. There is often a connection between ADHD and spinal distortions in the upper neck, or even reversals of the normal neck curve, and chiropractic adjustments may reduce tension on the nervous system and alleviate some symptoms.
In addition to working with us to address your child’s issues with ADHD, we suggest reducing their exposure to substances such as:
- Food additives, preservatives and dyes
- Foods grown with pesticides or herbicides
- Substances that provoke an allergic reaction, like dairy or gluten
- Sugars and artificial sweeteners
- Detergents, fabric softeners, cleaning agents and similar chemicals
Proactive Allergy Care & Possible Prevention
In an allergic reaction, the body misconstrues the allergen as a threat – it shouldn’t interpret your cat or laundry detergent as an attack, but it does. At Foundation Chiropractic, we know the nervous system orchestrates all the other systems (respiratory, glandular, immune) that react to allergies, and we work to ascertain and correct the disturbances that might be affecting your reactions. If your nervous system is too preoccupied dealing with everyday physical, chemical and emotional stressors, it may not have the capacity to appropriately react to allergic stimuli, so we’ll find the disturbances and restore your ability to adapt.
Soothing Your Scoliosis Symptoms
This abnormal sideways spine curvature, primarily affecting girls ages 8-18, starts out looking like a problem with posture, but can develop into a permanent disfigurement that may even affect vital organs without treatment. Anyone who’s seen a scoliosis back brace knows waiting for it to get that bad isn’t an appealing option, and our adjustments at Foundation Chiropractic may be able to catch and reduce this problem early. Our specific system of adjustments can help improve the spine’s function and structure, retraining and strengthening muscles to improve posture naturally.
If your child’s bladder control remains poor beyond age 4 or 5, there may be an underlying issue, and many children who cannot stay dry in the night may benefit from our treatments at Foundation Chiropractic. Bedwetting could be caused by misalignments in the sacrum segments as they come together in a child’s early years, which can compromise nerves that affect bladder function. We’ll work to reduce these misalignments safely and naturally, helping to restore normal bladder function.
Quality Colic Relief
Colic manifests in babies as inconsolable crying, and they’re too young to express what’s bothering them. Chiropractic care can find the cause of this discomfort, such as spinal distortions from a challenging birth, and even help the body overcome it. At Foundation Chiropractic, though we cannot treat colic directly, we can help restore proper nervous system control of your baby’s body and allow them to heal more naturally.
Defeating Digestive Distress
Persistent problems with digestion may be helped through dietary change, but chiropractic care can make a significant difference, too. At Foundation Chiropractic, we often treat children who are experiencing stomach issues. We find that these difficulties are caused or exacerbated by spinal misalignments that prevent proper digestion, and our techniques can cut down on inflammation and promote proper healing. Some of the maladies we can help with our chiropractic care include:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Crohn’s disease
PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome) Help
Disturbances in the spine, particularly the lower back, may compromise the nerves that direct the hormonal and reproductive systems, leading to heightened PMS symptoms. We at Foundation Chiropractic may be able to detect subluxations causing menstrual or premenstrual discomfort, or causing it to get worse. Restoration of nervous system function through chiropractic care won’t treat PMS directly, but it can help the body get its reproductive health back under control, relieving such symptoms as:
- Heavy bleeding
- Severe cramping
- Missed periods
Other Children’s Ailments
Many of the health problems children face are affected by interference from the nervous system, particularly along the spine. Foundation Chiropractic’s adjustment techniques can help with several unexpected issues, such as:
- Ear infections: Your child’s ears made be made more susceptible to viral infection by biomechanical restrictions in the upper spine.
- Growing pains: Though it may be tempting to pass off as a phase, otherwise unidentified pain in growing children may be a sign of biomechanical stress to the nervous system.
- Other wellness issues: Even if there are no obvious symptoms, there is a definite peace of mind in having your child checked for neurological or structural problems before they have a chance to become noticeable, especially given that health problems experienced as adults often have their roots in childhood.
General Wellness Checks
More and more people are discovering the benefits of wellness visits — going to the doctor without obvious symptoms, to head off potential problems before they become more than potential — and the same principle applies to chiropractic care. Our techniques at Foundation Chiropractic can help ward off health issues and detect lifestyle issues that may cause trouble later, as well as put your body in the best position possible to defend itself. We’ll be happy to show you just what kind of difference we can make, even if you’re feeling good right now.
