If you just spent months trying to get your body moving properly and pain-free it would be a shame to just let it unravel. In the beginning stages of care at Grow Chiropractic, we begin doing stability exercises so that you hold your adjustments and keep the structure good and sound. We educate you about taking care of your body so that you are not always reliant on chiropractic except on a maintenance basis. It would be wise to come in for maintenance adjustments to make sure that everything is moving well. This is very similar to a cleaning appointment that you would make with your dentist. Even if you have been flossing and brushing every day there are still some areas that you are likely to miss that only the dentist can help you with. If you didn’t have the dentist to help, that spot you continually miss could turn into a cavity or worse. It is always better to get check-ups rather than waiting for a big problem to arise.
Gentle and safe adjustments
I am frequently asked why a baby or child would need an adjustment, and the reason is very simple. We have all heard the saying from Alexander Pope, “As the twig is bent, so grows the tree.” Our bodies are the same way. From the moment a baby is born and quite often during the birthing process there is trauma to the baby. If the problem is not addressed, then the baby’s body is only going to compensate for it. Think how many times a child falls while learning to walk, run or ride a bike. Just because the baby or child doesn’t say that they are in pain doesn’t mean there isn’t a problem! We all know that we should go to the dentist every 6 months to get a check up because it is smart to get rid of a minor problem before it gets out of control and we need a filling. Maintenance is the key here, don’t wait for pain, stay ahead of it. You will save yourself lots of time and money. Adjustments for babies and kids are very gentle. There is no popping or fast adjustments, we use very light sustained pressure to adjust.
