Chiropractic Care for All AgesDecember 1, 2018
From newborn to ninety-nine, all ages can benefit from chiropractic care at Van Ness Chiropractic. As we bring 2018 to a close during this last month of the year and gather with family and friends from near and far to celebrate the holidays, consider the many ways chiropractic care benefits at each stage of life.
During the 2nd and 3rd trimesters of a pregnancy, the baby continues to grow inside the uterus, shifting the center of gravity for the expecting mom. With this shift, the spine of the to-be mom begins receiving unaccustomed stress, as does the pelvis. Since undue pelvic stress can lead to a breech birth and in-utero constraint for the baby, this is an especially important time to visit Van Ness Chiropractic – and to come back for regular adjustments.
Additional benefits for prenatal chiropractic care include:
- Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
- Controlling symptoms of nausea
- Reducing the time of labor and delivery
- Relieving back, neck or joint pain
- Preventing a potential cesarean delivery

Most parents don’t think of getting chiropractic care for their newborn, but infancy and childhood are very important times to receive adjustments. Colic, bedwetting, ear infections, asthma, scoliosis, and many other childhood conditions can be traced back to spinal problems that start in-utero. Chiropractic care is safe for children and has been shown to reduce the symptoms of nerve interference, such as constipation, asthma, allergies and so on.

Even when a child is in good health, a preventative spinal exam is a good idea. At Van Ness Chiropractic, Drs. Van Ness, Parkin and Sabri specialize in performing chiropractic adjustments on children: they use techniques that are gentle and non-invasive, using a very light amount of pressure that has been specifically tailored for that child’s spine.
Care for Working Adults
At many jobs, the same movement is repeated day after day. These repetitive motions often result in cumulative type trauma: a repetitive strain injury. These injuries usually occur gradually and can “sneak up” on a working adult. Additionally, these repetitive strain injuries can actually be much worse than an accident like a sudden fracture: because the severity of the injury is not always known right away, the trauma can be exacerbated by continued use after injury.
Did you know that neck and back injuries account for 90% of the injuries occurring at work? Learn more about worker’s injuries here. The Van Ness Chiropractic team has specialized training in repetitive strain injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Other injuries that working adults commonly experience include knee, hip and joint injuries, rotator cuff injuries and a variety of neck and back sprain/strains. Van Ness Chiropractic is well-equipped to treat all of them.
As a senior adult, chiropractic care is one of the most effective and safest forms of healthcare to treat pain due to spinal related conditions. Chiropractic care has been shown repeatedly to increase not only the range of motion of the spine, but also in the extremities. In many cases, this increase in range of motion immediately follows chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic care decreases spinal degeneration and other arthritic changes by normalizing the spinal alignment and reducing spinal stress. Learn more here. Van Ness Chiropractic is a participating provider with Medicare.
