Who Can Benefit From Chiropractic Care?

Most people think of getting chiropractic care when they need relief from back or neck pain, but its advantages go beyond your spine. For example, did you know that chiropractic treatments improve healing, reduce stress hormones, and boost your immune system?

There’s also more to chiropractic services than spinal manipulation. Jason Keller, DC, at iMed Regeneration Center has years of experience providing holistic care that draws from many techniques to prevent and address a vast range of health problems.

Here’s a rundown on the people who can benefit from chiropractic.

People at every age and stage of life

If you envision chiropractic as nothing more than intense spinal manipulation, you need to know that we offer an extensive range of therapies. We provide care that’s geared for everyone at every age and stage of life, from infants and children to pregnant women, adults, and seniors. 

Spinal misalignments occur due to the stress infants experience during delivery, a fall at the playground, and athletic activities. We solve the problem with gentle, age-appropriate techniques.

Specialized chiropractic care during pregnancy improves pelvic balance, relieves back pain, and helps turn babies from a breech position to a normal head-down position for delivery.

As you get older, your musculoskeletal and nervous systems gradually suffer the effect of time, leading to degenerative spine and joint problems. Regular chiropractic care promotes natural healing, improves your range of motion, and supports optimal spine health.

People suffering from pain and injuries

Getting relief from pain and help for a musculoskeletal injury are the top reasons many people initially seek chiropractic care — and for good reason. Chiropractors specialize in diagnosing and treating injuries and diseases affecting your muscles, bones, and nerves, with expertise in joint and spine conditions.

We perform therapies that alleviate pain, decrease inflammation, improve movement, strengthen muscles, and restore balance to your entire body. In addition to classic spinal adjustments, we may recommend techniques such as:

With a customized plan that targets your health care needs, chiropractic accelerates your recovery from injuries. If you plan to return to competitive sports, you receive sport-specific care that improves your performance.

When targeting your joints, we use gentle soft tissue and joint manipulation, along with exercises that strengthen the muscles supporting the joint.

People who want to avoid pain medications

Chiropractic is recommended over medication for challenging pain conditions such as low back pain. Why? Because chiropractic care and manual therapies do a better job of alleviating pain. In fact, chiropractic does such a good job that most patients can avoid dangerous pain medications like opioids.

People who want to prevent chronic health conditions

We practice holistic care that supports your long-term health. We learn about the factors that affect your health, then create a care plan that may include nutritional counseling and lifestyle changes that nurture wellness.

As experts in physical rehabilitation, we develop individualized exercise and stretching regimens. We also carefully evaluate your posture and teach proper ergonomics to prevent overuse injuries.

With regular adjustments, chiropractic keeps your body balanced. When your spine is properly balanced, your nerves and blood vessels stay healthy. As a result, your muscles, lungs, gastrointestinal tract, and every part of your body function at their fullest.
