Can Chiropractic Help With Other Problems? Yes, Possibly!

In addition to musculoskeletal problems, holistic, high-quality chiropractic care has also been shown to benefit many individuals suffering from "medical" ailments such as chronic ear infections in children, menstrual pain and irregularities in women, and arthritis in the elderly. Scientific research and clinical experience has clearly shown that most "medical" conditions are directly caused by lifestyle choices that we can easily identify and help to change through education , encouragement and wellness coaching. Another potential contributing cause to many so-called "medical conditions" is "vertebral subluxation complex" (VSC-see definition on the website). VSC is a form of disturbed biomechanics and disturbed neurological function and is a stressor on the body. Through a combination of identification, education and advice, as well as world-class spinal adjustments (designed to restore normal biomechanical/nerve function), we believe that many individuals suffering from these "medical" ailments can obtain partial or even full relief. It mainly depends on the commitment of the patient (or the parents of the patient).
