Every baby needs to have a healthy spinal column. It’s the framework that will support your child throughout his or her growing years and adulthood. Studies have shown that newborn infants often enter the world with spinal trauma due to the birth process. Even under the best conditions, birthing can be difficult for the infant who has spent nine months cradled in the dark, warm “waterbed” of the womb. It’s very important to have your infant checked by a chiropractor shortly after his or her birth to be certain that there isn’t any nerve interference. Periodic checks should continue throughout your child’s lifetime.iStock 000005016485XSmall 200x300 Babies and Chiropractic Care

Robert S. Mendelsohn, M.D., was one of America’s leading pediatricians and a vocal proponent of home delivery. In his consciousness-raising book Confessions of a Medical Heretic, he discussed how babies born in the hospital are six times more likely to suffer distress during labor and delivery, eight times more likely to get caught in the birth canal, four times more likely to need resuscitation, four times more likely to become infected and thirty times more likely to be permanently injured.

A study conducted by Lewis B Mehl, M.D. of the University of Wisconsin Infant Development Center reviewed 2,000 births. Nearly half of these had been home deliveries. Fourteen of the home-born babies had to be resuscitated as compared to fifty-two of those born in the hospital. And only one home-delivered baby suffered neurological damage compared to six of the hospital babies.

The figures reveal the benefits of home delivery. This is why many chiropractors and their families select natural childbirth at home.

Are you looking for a family chiropractor here in Centennial Colorado? If you live and work here in the Centennial area, finding a chiropractor near your office and home makes good sense. Here are 5 things to think about when choosing a family chiropractor.

1. Chiropractic care helps everyone in the family. Chiropractic care can help a baby deal with the stress of childbirth, and can help a woman experiencing symptoms from menopause. It can help a young child become stronger in her sports routines, and can help a man overcome the pain of chronic migraine headaches.

2. Chiropractic care changes your views on a healthy lifestyle. Chiropractic care isn’t about covering up chronic issues that may have been a part of your life for years. Instead, it’s about helping you experience living painfree and drugfree. Nobody should have to live life in pain, or on several types of medication. Natural is better. Your chiropractor knows this, and will share ways to help you get back on track towards a healthy lifestyle.

3. Chiropractic care helps save you money. The healthier you are, the less likely you’ll end up in the doctor’s office for costly medical problems. Without the visits and medicines that are frequently prescribed during those visits, you’ll be healthier and wealthier in no time.

4. Chiropractic care can improve your athletic ability. Are you slowing down because of the pain? Do you have the desire to become more active, and get back into sports and activities you’ve been missing for awhile? Start living pain free with regular adjustments, designed to focus on curing the ailment, not covering up the symptom.

5. Chiropractic care is a part of a healthy routine instead of a last resort. Too often we see people in our office who have tried everything, and look to chiropractic care as the last resort. Chiropractic care is about wellness, and living life pain free. Start with chiropractic care for your entire family, and avoid some of the problems and symptoms that come over time.

Watts Chiropractic is a family chiropractic office in Centennial Colorado. We focus on helping your entire family with living a healthy, pain free life.

What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic is the science by which the doctor locates and removes the cause of disease.  Treating symptoms is an unrewarding task for both patient and doctor alike.  Drugs tend to mask the pain and hide the underlying illness or disorder.  Illness and pain tend to come from within and, logically, the cure should also come from within.what is chiropractic1 What Is Chiropractic?

A simple example of correction of the cause of health problems is the “hose theory”.  You are in the yard watering the lawn with a garden hose and a rock falls across the hose.  It may interfere with the flow of water to where there is only half the original amount coming out of the nozzle.  Do you work on the nozzle? No, you go back down the hose and remove the cause-the rock. That is what Chiropractic is all about, locating and removing the cause. What follows?—HEALTH!

Does chiropractic always work?
No, Chiropractic doesn’t always work.  The same as the water hose situation—if the rock caused too much damage to the hose, then the removal of the rock is not going to make the water flow freely.  Or, if you keep twisting and pulling on the hose, it may interfere with the flow.  The same holds true in your body.  The Chiropractor may remove the cause, but there can still be too much damage done to restore the body to perfect health. Also, as with the twisting or pulling of the water hose, if you don’t cooperate with the Chiropractor and allow correction to take place, you shouldn’t expect complete health.  Chiropractic will work, does work, and has worked.  Chiropractic will restore your health if there hasn’t been too much damage and you cooperate.

What is the cause of my disorder?
Suddenly you find yourself ill or in pain.  Why? Some part of your mechanism has failed to function normally. Let us see what is causing this function to fail. Function fails because current fails, and that is the reason the light bulb doesn’t burn if the wall switch is off and the normal flow of current is interfered with. The current fails because something has interfered with its transmission.

How does chiropractic find the cause?
The chiropractor has to find the cause before he/she can correct it. Knowing that cause is an interference to normal flow of impulses from brain to tissue, then it is the job of the Chiropractor to find this interference. The chiropractor has an instrument called a Tytron which determines where interference exists and to what degree it exists. A recording is made of that portion of the spine with the Tytron to ascertain the pattern of interference. When this is established, precision x-rays are taken which virtually act as blueprint negatives. These confirm the Tytron readings by revealing exact position of the Atlas or Axis vertebrae and recommend to the chiropractor the correct manner in which to reposition the vertebra. Read more

High level athletes in nearly every sport have chosen to make chiropractic care a part of their training and a part of their lifestyle. Dr. Jeff Spencer was the team chiropractor for the USA Cycling Team that won 7 Tour de France victories, an unprecedented run in one of the world’s most chiropractic care for sports and athletes Chiropractic Care and Sports Programs Go Hand In Handgrueling sports. Dr. Greg Kempf from Cleveland, Ohio, has been providing chiropractic care for the Cleveland Browns since 1999 and the Cleveland Cavaliers for the past five seasons. He regularly travels with the Browns and occasionally with the Cavs. On game day, it is not uncommon for Dr. Kempf to adjust 35 of the 55 members of the team prior to the game.

Some of the top athletes in the world have publicly praised their chiropractors as both their saviors in times of injury, as well as keys to their reaching their full athletic potential. Dr. Spencer, for example, was featured in an article in Esquire Magazine adjusting Lance Armstrong and he was also mentioned in one of Lance’s books. When Emmitt Smith retired as the NFL’s all time leading rusher, he graciously thanked God, his family and his chiropractor, Dr. Greg Parker, for supporting him in his stellar career.

But the advantages don’t stop with top athletes, Olympic champions and the professionals. It can have a profound impact on amateur and youth sports as well.

Chiropractic gives athletes the competitive advantage that they need to compete at the highest level, and for the duration of their event. No wonder youth sports programs around the country are making chiropractic care available to all of their athletes. This is especially important to college bound athletes who are considering scholarships, as colleges want to invest in healthy kids rather than risk their dollars on young athletes with chronic injuries.

Are you ready for chiropractic care for the athlete in your life?

Are you living with back pain? Have you ever had one of these thoughts when dealing with your back pain?

  • Maybe it will go away
  • It comes and goes
  • It’s not that bad
  • It only hurts when I ___
  • I know what my problem is, it’s ___
  • I was told I have to live with it, so I do
  • My doctor could not find anything wrong
  • I have been this way for years, why change now
  • I don’t want to know
  • It’s because of my age

If you are feeling back pain, it’s your back’s way of telling you there is a problem. Chiropractic care is essential for wellness. Chiropractic removes interference from your nerve system so there is no static on your lines. Chiropractic care keeps your spine and nerve system free from interference so that your body can function at its best all the time.  Not just to eliminate your back pain, but to concentrate on whole body wellness as well.

In today’s world, there is a doctor or specialist for every part of your body. The best doctor ever created works to keep us healthy and alive 24 hours a day. It is inside of us and it came from GOD called innate intelligence. Regardless of your religious belief, we would all agree that there is wisdom inside of us.  This wisdom within us…

  • Draws the blueprint and organizes every living organ for your body
  • Regulates, directs and controls the body all of the time
  • Knows when something is wrong inside of you and how to fix it.
  • Rebuilds all tissues, organs, muscles and bones
  • Tells you when to sneeze, when to blow your nose, when to go bathroom, when to sweat and when to shiver 
  • Raises the skin into a blister when the skin is burned
  • Heals a broken bone or cut on the skin
  • Tells you when to blink your eyes
  • Grows your toe nails, fingernails, and hair
  • Beats your heart and puts air into your lungs
  • Regulates your body temperature
  • Tells you when you are tired, thirsty or hungry
  • Gets any sick organ or part of the body well

Your innate intelligence resides in your spine and travels from your brain to your body. If there is an interruption or disturbance to your body’s inborn wisdom, odds are you are Subluxated. 

SUBLUXATION is a condition that occurs when the top two vertebrae in your spine misalign causing the messages from the brain to the body to become distorted due to the pressure placed upon the Brainstem. 

Living in this state, your body is breaking down and beginning to malfunction.  The longer you live in this state, the weaker the body becomes.  Sickness and/or disease will eventually ensue.

Are you looking for a south Denver Family Chiropractic care office for you and your whole family? Chiropractic care isn’t just for adults; it’s one of the best ways to help children build a healthy lifestyle for the future. From childbirth, colic, growing pains, and sports injuries, children work and play just as hard as adults. So why not give them the gift of chiropractic care early, and help put them on track for a healthy lifestyle?

If you are looking for a chiropractic care center that focuses on the family, here are a few questions should you ask before you start receiving care.

1. Find a location perfect for everyone. Chiropractic care treatments are usually a few minutes here and there. The more convenient your chiropractors office is, the more you’re likely to use it. If you’re located here in south Denver, it’s important to find a chiropractor in south Denver. Finding a chiropractor close to home, close to work, close to school, and close to all of your activities will help make chiropractic care a part of your healthy living routine.

2. Chiropractic care is about wellness care. While traditional medicine focuses on “curing” sickness, we focus on wellness. Our goal is to help you and your family achieve maximum improvement and wellness, then supplement with periodic adjustments to maintain wellness. Wellness care means regular maintenance – not an adjustment when you’re out of balance again.

3. Look for a family friendly environment. Just like you, your kids want to go places they feel warm and welcome. Because chiropractic care is all about wellness, its important to connect with your doctor and feel comfortable visiting on a regular basis.

4. Find someone that is a part of the community. You live here, shop here, work here, and play here. So should your chiropractor. Are they involved in local groups? Are they active online, and make a commitment to get involved? Do they stay current on medical trends? A sign of a strong business is one that stays active.

5. Define your goals for wellness. Every member of the family will probably have a different goal. Your kids may want to compete in various sports. You may choose to maintain your health with simple physical activity. Every goal should be achievable and not only a part of your goals, but also a goal for your chiropractor. Different people have different requirements for a healthy lifestyle. Discuss your goals, and make sure your chiropractor can help you achieve your goals.
