While it is a great idea to get your own spine checked regularly (and often), one of the best ways you can enhance this experience is to get the rest of your family to start care if they haven't already. Studies have shown that when an entire family is onboard with a particular form of health care, everyone in the family experiences the benefits even more. Why is this so great with family chiropractic care? Because not only is there shared support and prioritization of the process, but having a clear nervous system lends itself to better communication, enhanced emotional well-being, and a greater sense of ease in the body. How could family chiropractic care not be an asset if everyone is experiencing these benefits?!
Chiropractic care is safe for all ages.
Chiropractic care is a gentle, effective approach to health and wellness that is safe for the entire family. This includes everyone from newborn babies to seniors, and everyone in between. It is even safe for your pets! Like adults, infants and children can suffer from subluxations. These misalignments are often at the root of several health issues and can cause unnecessary pain, discomfort, and stress for humans and animals alike.
Improves Nervous System Function.
Your central nervous system controls your body’s functions, which means it’s responsible for telling your body what to do, when, and where to do it. The brain and spine play key roles in ensuring that your nervous system is working properly. When your nervous system is not working properly, this can affect the brain to body communication and can negatively impact health outcomes. The chiropractic adjustment is a specific correction that restores healthy alignment to the subluxated (misaligned) vertebrae which takes pressure off the nerves, so that the body can function optimally. A healthy spine is at the foundation of a healthy life.
Improve Your Posture
In today’s digital age, a major concern is how often people of all ages spend sitting on a daily basis. Your children likely sit at a desk for hours at school, while you may sit at work from 9 to 5 (or longer). This sedentary reality poses several health risks, especially to your spine and nervous system. Poor posture can negatively affect your body in many ways and often causes chronic subluxations that impede normal function and can even down regulate the immune system. Slouching over computers and video games also places excessive and unusual distribution of weight on your joints and can contribute to inflammation. Chiropractic adjustments are specifically designed to gently and safely restore your body back into the correct alignment which will help improve your posture and nervous system function.
Get Better Sleep
So many people don't get enough sleep. It is such a simple way to improve health, and accelerate healing, but many families struggle to get an adequate amount of hours each night. Did you know that chronic lack of sleep is a major contributing factor to stress and puts you at increased risk for illness, obesity, diabetes, heart attack, and stroke? Not only that, but it is a form of stress that can contribute to subluxation as well.
Lots of things can contribute to poor sleep patterns. Pain is often a big contributor, but even more significant than that is dysregulated nervous system. When our body is out of alignment and we have subluxation present, it interferes with our innate ability to regulate and relax. This can disrupt circadian rhythms, cause physiological symptoms like night sweats and headaches, as well as anxiety. Getting adjusted not only can reduce symptoms like pain, but most important of all, it means you have a healthy nervous system, and this means better sleep for the whole family.
Chiropractic is Cost-Effective Health Care
When it comes to your family, health is a top priority. Since chiropractic focuses on holistic health, by keeping the nervous system healthy through a healthy spine, it is much more affordable than conventional health care as it is preventative in nature. This is especially true when you take advantage of package options, like the family package (hint hint). Chiropractic is all about a holistic approach that focuses on balancing the body's most important system- the nervous system. This is often at the root of most of our ailments. It’s best to think of chiropractic as a long-term investment in your family’s health. This is different from traditional care that focuses on addressing symptoms with costly medications and risky, invasive surgeries that don’t always work. Chiropractic care is a wise investment that provides lasting health and wellness for you and your loved ones.
