Yes. It is extremely important to get checked by a chiropractor. Research shows that a car accident, or fender bender as little as 5-10mph can cause shifting in the spine, which will eventually cause discomfort and pain. An x-ray is the best way of identifying shifts in the spine, especially if there is no stiffness or pain.
Regular chiropractic care during pregnancy helps maintain balance, development, and flexibility for the mother. Many report that they experience less morning sickness. Pregnant women who get adjusted report shorter, less traumatic, and more pleasant deliveries when they receive chiropractic care.
In simplest terms, a subluxation is when one or more of the bones of your spine move out of position and create pressure on, or irritate spinal nerves. Spinal nerves are the nerves that come out from between each of the bones in your spine. This pressure or irritation on the nerves then causes those nerves to malfunction and interfere with the signals traveling over those nerves.
Accidents, slips, falls, poor posture, emotional and physical stress, the natural birthing process, and bad sleeping habits can cause subluxations.
Your nervous system controls and coordinates ALL the functions of your body. If you interfere with the signals traveling over nerves, parts of your body will not get the proper nerve messages and will not be able to function at 100% of their innate abilities. In other words, some part of your body will not be working properly.
Only 10% of the body perceives pain, therefore it is important to get routine chiropractic checkups. You do not have to have pain to benefit from chiropractic care.
YES! The normal birthing process puts tremendous stress on a child's spine causing misalignments. Those misalignments can cause colic, ear infections, bedwetting, and other aches and pains which can lead to the chronic and hard to correct misalignments seen in adults.
It depends on what type of relief you are looking for. If you are looking for pain relief, then no. Pain relief is achieved within the first few days to first few weeks of treatments. If you are looking to correct the problem and also prevent it from coming back, then more treatment is required.
