Thus, no one problem is considered too small or too big to bother a family visit.

One of the most common concerns among pregnant women is the onset of sciatica. Pregnant women often suffer from sciatica due to the fact that their spinal alignment becomes compromised during the process of pregnancy. While pregnant, the pelvis tilts forward and gravity pulls down on the lower back which causes the sciatic nerve, which is a large nerve in the body, to become compressed. For those who already have the problem, treatment in Family Chiropractic can be highly effective and painless during the pregnancy period. However, in cases where the problem does not start during the pregnancy or has become chronic, treatment may need to be taken beyond the pregnancy period in order to relieve symptoms.
Chiropractors use a wide range of treatments beyond the traditional treatment of spine misalignment. In fact, modern chiropractic is not simply about treatment of back pain. Often times, treating the whole person requires chiropractic, an approach that lessening the emphasis on traditional treatment and emphasizes wellness and overall health. Chiropractors are not only health care professionals; many are also fitness instructors, motivational speakers, home builders, and teachers. These individuals know how important it is to keep the body healthy and free from injury and pain. The belief in self-healing and balancing the energy between the mind and body makes many modern chiropractors highly skilled in the area of biofeedback and ergonomics.
Chiropractors believe that the nervous system controls most functions of the body and that any dysfunction in this system is reflected in the function, health and appearance of the skeletal and muscular systems. For this reason, chiropractors perform spinal adjustments to correct misalignments in the spine and surrounding tissues which affect the nervous system. Some of the adjustments used in Family Chiropractic are gentle and frequent, while others involve more aggressive techniques. Sometimes, when problems are severe, chiropractors take measures to alleviate the discomfort by performing exercises that stretch the muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments. Manipulation and manual therapy are other commonly used treatments in this practice.
A chiropractor serving a single patient may choose to concentrate on her spinal concerns or on a variety of ailments. Family Chiropractic incorporates the use of various modalities including chiropractic adjustments, herbal remedies, nutritional support and physical therapy. Physical therapists may work with patients who have injured their backs or necks and encourage proper muscle strength and range of motion. Nutritional experts may provide patients with advice on diet and supplements that can aid in healing the body and correcting the cause of a particular ailment or condition. A chiropractor serving a multiple patient list may refer their patients to a therapist or physician for additional treatment when the initial treatment plan is not achieving the desired results.
Family Chiropractic is often used to complement primary care physicians, particularly those in the spine and/or spine and leg areas. Family Chiropractic may offer other options other than just working with pregnant women with sciatica or other issues. It is important to check with your health care professional to make sure Family Chiropractic is appropriate for your particular situation and needs before making a commitment to see a chiropractor serving a multiple clientele. With regular check-ups and adjustments, a chiropractor serving a family may help children attain good posture and function as they grow and age.
