As a mom, you want what’s best for your family. You want to ensure you get the most bang for your buck regarding health care. Chiropractic care is an increasingly popular healthcare option, but how do you know if it’s right for you and your family? Here are a few things to consider.

How Does Chiropractic Care Work?

Chiropractors are highly trained professionals who use their hands to manipulate the spine and other joints. This helps to relieve pain, improve range of motion, and promote healing. Chiropractic care is a drug-free, non-invasive treatment option that can treat various conditions, including back pain, headaches, and arthritis.

What Are the Benefits of Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care can help improve your overall health and well-being. It can reduce pain, increase range of motion and balance, improve posture, enhance athletic performance, and reduce stress. Additionally, chiropractic care has been known to provide relief from headaches and asthma and help improve sleep, digestion, and emotional health.  There are many benefits of chiropractic care, both for mom and baby. For moms, chiropractic care can help relieve back pain during pregnancy, improve labor and delivery times, and even aid postpartum recovery. Chiropractic care can help reduce colic, gas pains, and ear infections for babies.

For your teen athlete, chiropractic care can improve performance, prevent injuries, and speed up the recovery time from injuries.

What to Expect During a Chiropractic Visit

During your first visit, the chiropractor will take a medical history and perform a physical exam. Your chiropractor may also perform an exam, including a physical and neurological assessment, to better understand your need and determine the best course of action.  Once they better understand your condition, they will develop a treatment plan. This may involve adjustments, soft tissue work, stretches, and at-home exercises.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe?

Chiropractic care is safe for everyone in the family! All chiropractors must complete a doctorate program and the national board exam to practice. In addition, all treatments are tailored specifically to each patient’s needs.

Chiropractic care is a safe and effective treatment option for the whole family. If you want an alternative to traditional medicine, consider contacting us at Zock Family Chiropractic.
