Looking for safe and natural ways to improve and maintain your family’s health? Dr. Felicity Keough and Dr. Michelle Mashinter at Keough Chiropractic in Saint Charles, MO, offer family wellness care to help you achieve this goal.
The Role of Chiropractic Care in Family Wellness
Do you ever wish that you could put a bubble around your family to protect them from all the illnesses, injuries, and other harmful things? While a bubble can be a bit impractical, and it’s not possible to prevent everything, you can greatly reduce your loved ones’ risk through chiropractic family wellness. Learn more about how in the guide below from Dr. Keough and Dr. Mashinter at Keough Chiropractic in Saint Charles, MO.
Develop Better Posture
You might not think often about posture, but it’s integral to your health. Slouching and leaning your head over and down puts unnecessary pressure on the neck and back. This pressure can lead to misalignment, herniated discs, nerve compression, and more that can negatively impact your entire body. Chiropractic care can help your family develop and maintain proper posture for optimal health.
Improved Nerve Function
Nerve compression leads to numbness, tingling, and pain, but it can do much more than that. The nerves are responsible for organ function, movement, and more. When they become compressed, it can cause various health issues. However, chiropractic care can ensure proper nerve function through achieving spinal health.
Pregnancy and Child Care
Pregnancy is a particularly challenging time for a woman's musculoskeletal system, due to both the added weight and the loosening of her joints and ligaments in preparation for childbirth. Our chiropractors are trained to provide Webster technique adjustments that are appropriate for pregnant women and to provide gentle adjustments that might be necessary for young patients.
Though some injuries are sudden, many are due to ongoing issues. For example, a herniated disc might occur in a car accident, but it is also very likely to be the result of daily habits like poor posture. By visiting a chiropractor regularly, you can ameliorate the damage of everyday life and significantly reduce the chances of sustaining an injury.
If you do sustain an injury or develop a health condition, chiropractic care can still be beneficial. By removing restrictions in the body, restoring nerve function, and improving blood flow, your body is empowered to heal. Your family can recover more quickly and typically without the use of invasive techniques or medication.
