All Ages Can Benefit From Chiropractic Care: Here’s Why


By: Dr. Alexander Jimenez, D.C.,C.C.S.T

When thinking about chiropractic care, there is a common misconception that it is only for certain age groups or types of patients. Injury rehabilitation for adults often comes to mind. Yet, chiropractic services have many benefits for the young, old, and anyone in between.

The Pros of Chiro at Each Stage


Realistically, not everyone needs a chiropractic adjustment right now. Like many aspects of personal health, it is dependent on each person’s physical condition. However, it is impossible to know whether chiropractic care is necessary until you have actually been examined by a chiropractor.

The following are some of the many benefits chiropractic services can provide patients throughout their lives.

Children


Many parents wonder if choosing a chiropractor is safe for young children. The short answer is yes. Pediatric chiropractic care is fully endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association, and chiropractors receive pediatric training as part of their doctorate studies.

Now more than ever, the spines of children today are subjected to many types of stresses that can cause misalignments, including: wearing heavy backpacks, increased use of computers and mobile devices and sports injuries.

Chiropractic care can address these issues, and has also been successfully used to treat everything from colic, chronic ear infections and back and neck pain.

Teens


Many teenagers are involved in sports. Poor posture habits and hefty backpacks can also negatively impact your teen’s spine. Chiropractors help with lower back pain caused by athletic activities and help minor injuries heal more rapidly.

Since an aligned spine reduces pain and stiffness, it enables a body to become more flexible and stronger. Regular adjustments may help your teen perform better and improve overall health.

Adults


The benefits of chiropractic care continue and expand into adulthood. Here we see neck and spinal adjustments frequently used to rehabilitate automotive, work and sports related injuries.

Military and commercial pilots often seek out chiropractic care due to long hours sitting in awkward positions and from being subjected to extreme g-forces in high performance aircraft.

Adult patients have also indicated many other positive results from chiropractic care, including:

  • Feeling less stressed

  • Better sleep

  • Lower blood pressure

  • Reduced feelings of depression

  • Less chronic pain

  • Fewer headaches

  • Improved pregnancies

Seniors


One of the more common myths about chiropractic care is that seniors are considered too old and frail to benefit from it. In reality the opposite is true. Older patients who undergo spinal manipulation have reported many significant quality of life improvements.

Chiropractors using moderate adjustment techniques can ensure a comfortable and pain free treatment experience. For seniors, chiropractic services can improve the range of motion of the spine and extremities, help increase balance and coordination, reduce symptoms of arthritis, slow or eliminate joint degeneration and decrease potentially catastrophic falling incidents.

Frequently it eliminates the need for certain medications. Simply put, chiropractic practices have the potential to help seniors live more independent and healthy lives.

Chiropractic care brings benefits no matter what stage of life you are in – and it is never too late to start. A 2007 National Health Interview Survey found that more than 18 million adults and nearly 2 million children had received chiropractic care within the year. It is an effective health care option performed almost one million times every business day in the United States.

Pain in the Quadratus Lumborum Muscle

A majority of the population have at some point experienced low back pain in their lifetimes. Although low back pain is recognized to result from numerous conditions or injuries on the lumbar spine, muscle strains such as a quadratus lumborum muscle strain, are believed to be a leading cause for the recognizable symptoms of pain and discomfort.
The quadratus lumborum muscle is a sizable muscle in the shape of a triangle, located deep on each respective side of the lower back. The role of the wide muscular tissue is to grant mobility to the lumbar spine in sequence for the torso to move laterally from side to side as well as extend and stabilize the lower spine to improve posture. When this muscle is strained or pulled, the symptoms can restrict movement on the lower back and since the muscular tissue is so extensive, recovery from this type of injury usually requires more time and patience to fully heal.

Achilles Tendon Injury

Achilles tendonitis is a medical term used to describe a condition resulting in irritation of the large tendon, the Achilles tendon. Found in the back of the ankle, this condition is recognized as a common cause for injury among athletes. Excessive use of the Achilles tendon results in inflammation together with swelling and pain.
The development of Achilles tendonitis can be associated with two important factors, most frequently among athletes, which are, lack of flexibility and over-pronation. With age, the tendons will begin to lose flexibility, just the same as other tissues in the body. This change causes the tendons to become more rigid and more vulnerable to injury. For some people, the ankle may roll too far downward and inward with each step they take. This is called over-pronation, which places more stress on the tendons and ligaments of the foot, contributing to injury if not corrected.
Achilles tendonitis may also develop from other factors. An increase in an athlete’s …

5 Common Causes for Shoulder Pain

The shoulders are the most mobile joints in the human body. Because the ball of the humerus is designed to be larger than the shoulder socket that holds it, the shoulders need to be supported by muscles, tendons, and ligaments to secure them in a stable or natural position. Since the shoulder can be unstable, it is often a site for many common complications. Below are 5 common causes of shoulder pain and their associated symptoms.
Rotator Cuff Tear
Rotator cuff tears within the shoulder are a very common type of shoulder injury. The rotator cuff consists of a set of four muscles: the supraspinatus, the infraspinatus, the subscapularis, and the teres minor. All of these muscles are attached to the bones of the shoulders by tendons, which purspose is to support, stabilize, and grant the arm movement to move up, down and rotate. The rotator cuff ensures that the arm remains in the shoulder socket. Damage or injury from an accident or gradual wear and tear can result in inflammation to t…
