Essential Life Boise, a pediatric chiropractic clinic in Boise, Idaho, has revealed that they are offering their services to school children, and even toddlers. While it may seem odd that toddlers or young school children would be suffering from back pain, they want to point out that misalignment of the spine may occur during childbirth. Childbirth can be a tough process for the baby, causing substantial amount of force to be exerted on the neck that could lead to back pain later on. It has been observed that children who get chiropractic adjustments grow at their body’s optimal level and have fewer chances of getting ear infections. More about this can be gleaned at https://elifeboise.com/chiropractic-care/pediatrics/.
Dr. Yvonne, Doctor of Chiropractic at Essential Life Boise, says, “Chiropractic care is a drug-free, non-surgical approach to healing and wellness. It restores health and prevents injury by improving the structural integrity of the body, primarily focusing on the spine. The brain communicates with the rest of the body via the spinal cord and nervous system. When functioning perfectly, this communication is uninterrupted, and the messages go to and from the brain without interference. This allows you to live your amazing life without pain and with wellness.”
She continues, “Working with kids is one of my favorite things in practice. They respond so fast and I love knowing their budding bodies are growing with the best health possible.”
Dr. Yvonne explains that if part of the nervous system is inhibited, the signal fails to reach the intended body part, possibly causing an illness. This can manifest anywhere along the spine. Thus, a pain in the arm or hand may be due to a problem in the neck. A qualified chiropractor can examine the spine for such interferences and get rid of them through controlled techniques, resulting in a pain-free and healthy body.
When looking at a child from the front, the spine has to be straight. This means that the head, shoulders, hips, and feet are lined up. And when looking at a child from the side, the ears have to be back over the shoulders, while shoulders have to back over the pelvis. The child’s posture and spine are abnormal may result into some problems if: the head is tilted, shifted or rotated in one direction; head juts out in front of the chest and shoulders; one shoulder is higher than the other, turned in one direction, or the entire upper body is shifted to one side; and one hip is higher than the other, turned in one direction, or shifted to one side. Chiropractic care may help if any of these cases are present.
Aside from pediatric chiropractic services, Essential Life Boise can also provide treatment for various people, including victims of accidents, disc injuries, food sensitivities, low back pain, pregnant women, sports injuries, headaches, and jaw pain. They can also offer cold laser therapy, which makes use of wavelengths of light to hasten healing. They can also perform the Webster technique, which is specific to pregnancy and focuses on the pelvic bones, muscles, and ligaments. They can provide gentle chiropractic care for pregnant women to support their bodies and the growing baby.
Whiplash injuries are common for people who have been involved in a car accident. The symptoms of a whiplash injury may take weeks or even months to become noticeable and people may not realize they have such an injury. However, a whiplash injury may have caused damage to the supporting muscles, ligaments, and other connective tissues in the upper back and neck. This may result in serious complications. Thus, it is advisable for victims of car accidents to consult a chiropractor.
