Chiropractic is holistic healthcare for your whole family
Every member of the family has specific concerns regarding their spinal health. Parents are concerned with the onset of spinal degeneration, the herculean task of childcare and the monotonous, repetitive trauma inherent in many jobs. Simply commuting can place a burden on the spine that is then repeated twice a day for an indefinite amount of time.
Children, on the other hand, are much more active and less inhibited by spinal problems. Rather than worrying about degeneration, they struggle with the problems of spinal development, including abnormal curvature and early spinal injury. They also spend significant amounts of time sitting at school, learning and reinforcing the habits that lead to poor posture from an early age.
Being proactive about spinal health helps everyone in the family maintain a high level of spinal health, no matter the particular pressures that they face on a daily basis. And the best way to be proactive about spinal health is using chiropractic care!
Every member of the family can use spinal support
Spinal health is a struggle, the same as the daily struggle to fit in exercise, nutrition and sleep. But it is an essential struggle-one that will define the way you feel in your old age. From this perspective, the earlier you start taking care of your spine, the better; that is the opportunity that you can afford yourself and your entire family. Maintaining your spine should include:
- Regular chiropractic adjustment
- Stretching that specifically targets the tissues of the spine and mitigates repetitive trauma
- Exercise that strengthens the core stabilizing muscles
- Attention to posture and its role in every activity your perform throughout the day
Your children are not facing the problems inherent in spinal degeneration, but instead their spines are attempting to develop in a healthy manner. Chiropractic supports this development by addressing issues such as abnormal curvature and spinal injury.
In both cases, we focus on maintaining full range of motion in the spinal joints to help your family lead a healthier, happier life. If you are interested in using chiropractic for your family’s healthcare, give our office in Westwood a call to schedule an appointment today.
