While you may know that chiropractic care can be very effective for addressing back and neck pain, you may not be aware of its affect on other issues, such as asthma, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, or even pregnancy. Yet chiropractic care has helped resolve all of these issues, and many more.

Think of the spine as the control center for nerve flow. Even a slight change in your body can cause it to function at less than 100 percent. The longer you live performing at a less than 100 percent range, the more other things will begin developing throughout your body.

When a woman experiences nine months of pregnancy, everything changes. Not only is her body changing every day, it also impacts the baby.

Over the last few decades, artificial practices have changed the birth process from a natural physiological event to a very complicated medical procedure. Today, all kinds of drugs are utilized and invasive procedures carried out. These procedures are performed sometimes unnecessarily, and many are potentially harmful or damaging to the mother and unborn child alike.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Instead of relying on traditional medicine, you can opt to take a more natural approach, and include chiropractic care throughout the process. Chiropractic care can help you release unneeded tension, allowing for:

  • Better function
  • Decreased back and pelvic pain
  • Decreased labor time
  • Increased appreciation of the entire pregnancy process
  • Increased ease and comfort during labor and childbirth

Chiropractic care during your pregnancy should be at a level that is comfortable to you, and that helps you get ready for one of the most exciting times of your life.

As the weather warms here in Denver, many of us are digging the golf bag out of the garage or basement, and heading to the driving range to get ready for a summer of golfing. Hitting the driving range is a great way to start. But did you know another to-do on your list should be to see your chiropractor?

Around 75 percent of golfers on the PGA and Senior Tours receive regular chiropractic care. And according to some reports, up to 85 percent of all injuries on the tours relate to the spine. While you may not play as frequently, or swing as hard as the pros do, you still are at risk of developing spinal problems every time you head out onto the course.

Improve your Golf Game with Chiropractic Care Improve your Golf Game with Chiropractic CareA golf swing twists your body in ways you never do during other activities. And because you can easily swing 120 times or more during a single afternoon round of golf, hunch over the ball before each swing, and carry around a heavy golf bag across one shoulder for several hours, your body may soon start telling you something is wrong. From lower back pain, to shoulder and knee injuries, correct the problems early before they manifest into bigger issues.

If you see your chiropractor regularly, be sure to talk about your normal activities. If you golf once or twice per week, let him know. The more he understands about what you do, the more he can create a program that works best for you, and keeps you healthy and safe from potential injuries.

Not only can he provide you with regular chiropractic adjustments to keep your spine balanced and aligned, he can also provide you with specific stretching and strengthening exercises that will help keep you in top shape, and ready to face your next golf game in the best shape possible.

There are many variations in techniques used by chiropractors. Overall, chiropractors focus on irregularities in the spinal structure and movement, and use hands-on procedures and manipulation to return the body function to a more healthy state.

Because every chiropractor has a different belief in the best technique, you can visit many doctors throughout the Denver area, and find a variety of different options. Here at Watts Chiropractic, we specialize in the Blair Technique, and are one of only two chiropractic offices here in Colorado that specialize in this technique.

With the Blair Technique, no two patients are going to receive the identical treatment. We start by performing a variety of assessments using neurological tests, x-rays and heat sensitive instrumentation to determine where your vertebral misalignments occur, and the best approach to move forward with.

When a vertebrae misaligns to the extent that it interferes with nerve tissue and reduces the mental impulses, it is termed a subluxation. A subluxation may be present for months or years before producing any outward signs such as pain or symptoms. The pain is signifying its time to get help – and the Blair Technique can help readjust those misaligned vertebrae, and help you get back to an active lifestyle.

After your initial exam, your follow up appointments will be quick and easy. We keep an open office policy – stop by during our normal business hours, and you’ll quickly be in and out for your adjustment.

What is an asthma attack?

If you’ve ever experienced one Chiropractic Care for Children with Asthma Chiropractic Care for Children with Asthmawith your own child, you know just how scary they can be. Asthma is a disorder in which the airway becomes inflamed, resulting in wheezing, loss of breath, and a tightness in the chest. During an asthma attack, the airway becomes constricted, and breathing becomes difficult and labored.

While no one knows for sure what causes asthma, we do know that asthma attacks can be triggered by exposure to certain conditions. Children will exhibit severe coughing and wheezing, and begin feeling a tightness in the chest and a shortness of breath. Triggers can include many things, including:

  • Cigarette smoke
  • Cleaning products
  • Pesticides
  • Molds
  • Dust
  • Pollens
  • Strong emotions
  • Stress
  • Infections of the respiratory system

While the prevalence of asthma has been increasing every year in this country, it’s increasing at an especially alarming rate in children over the past 10 years. With more asthma drugs and allergy shots on the market, why is this happening? Study after study proves there are no significant benefits with shots given to children for moderate to sever asthma.  Ultimately its because medication isn’t addressing the true problem.

Chiropractic care focuses on the well being of the entire person. If a misalignment is corrected and managed properly, a child can often return to normal childhood behavior, without having to rely on medication that is ineffective and simply doesn’t work.

Ready to explore a natural treatment for your child suffering with asthma? Give us a call today. We specialize in children and family chiropractic care, and welcome the chance to get you back on track to good health.

Many people know the benefits of chiropractic care for adults – but can chiropractic care be just as effective for children?Why Chiropractic Care Is Important For Children Why Chiropractic Care Is Important For Children

Is it safe to adjust a child?
Chiropractic is absolutely safe for children. A chiropractor uses very gentle and specific techniques for children. The purpose of chiropractic is to remove interference to the nervous system, which is the control center for all of the body’s organs, tissues and systems. Chiropractic adjustments release the body’s healing powers in children just like in adults.

Why do infants need chiropractic?

The birth process is highly traumatic and can introduce great stress to the infant’s skull, spine and pelvis. Infants should be checked by a chiropractor for spinal subluxations that may impair nerve function and can contribute to colic, earache and asthma. As babies grow, they begin to crawl, sit, and walk by using their spine. Proper alignment is essential for ensuring normal function.
