Chiropractic Care May Improve Infants’ Sleep

A pilot study conducted by Joyce Miller and Matts Klemsdal evaluated whether routine chiropractic care in infants had also improved the patients’ sleep pattern. Sleep problems plague about 25 percent of all infants; they are measured by the time it takes the child to settle down, the amount of consecutive sleep hours the child accumulates and the quality of sleep. All this can add a great amount of stress to new parents. In many cases, a disturbed sleep pattern is usually also accompanied by an infant’s excessive crying. A pilot study was published in the Journal of Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics. In the study, 116 infants, who were in chiropractic care for various health challenges, were rated on their sleep behavior during the course of their care.

The Benefits of Proper Ergonomics

Many of us have jobs that require sitting for long periods of time, usually in front of a computer. Most students study for hours on end, quite often sitting with poor posture for prolonged periods of time as well. And most of us don’t realize that posture and position is critical to the health and wellness of our bodies. Bad posture tends to put more pressure on our spine and nerves and causes the muscles around the spine to compensate and work differently and inefficiently. Research has shown that bad posture can cause headaches, shoulder pain, reduced lung function and poor digestion. One study found that those who sit most of the day experienced a 147% increase in developing cardiovascular disease, due to the change in their posture and pressure on their spine.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Children

Chiropractic care is important for all of us, adults and children. A chiropractic adjustment helps keep our spine aligned. This allows our central nervous system to perform at its peak. The nervous system is our body’s communication mechanism, and the most critical function of our body. We definitely want our nervous system to be working at 100% because a healthy nervous system translates into proper blood circulation, brain function, heart health, digestion, immune system function, and so much more.

We see children in our office for many different reasons, some just for overall health and wellness and others for specific conditions. Research has shown that chiropractic can greatly improve immune system function...

Spring into Health!

With spring around the corner, this is the time of year most people get more active, eat better and feel more healthy. So do you consider yourself in the best health possible? Most people think that by feeling good, their body is fine and probably in the best condition it can be. However, this is not completely true. The reason being, symptoms unfortunately don’t tell us everything. Feeling pain or discomfort is a good indication that our body is not functioning well but sometimes we feel no pain or have no symptoms at all, therefore leaving us with no indication that our body is not in perfect health. The nervous system is an important part of our body and tells us a lot about our health.
