How Can Bidwell Chiropractic Help You?

Injuries, stress or chronic pain most often are the reasons people seek chiropractic care. Because chiropractic treats the underlying causes of the problems rather than just relieving symptoms, your body’s natural healing processes work for you.

“The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate and help correct interference to your body’s natural state of good health.”

With a program of regular spinal maintenance, many patients recover a degree of health and vigor greater than they enjoyed before their problem occurred.

The following are just a few conditions that generally respond favorably to Chiropractic:

HEADACHES

When headaches are frequent or recur over time, they can make life miserable. A Doctor of Chiropractic is highly experienced in finding the cause behind headaches as well as relieving the immediate pain.

Usually, a series of spinal adjustment to return misaligned spinal bone to a more normal position and motion can relieve pressure on irritated nerve roots. A Chiropractor can also help in identifying headache triggers, suggest relaxation exercises, therapy and lifestyle modifications to help avoid future headaches.

NECK PAIN

Chances are you have experienced a stiff or sore neck a one time or another. Given the complex mechanics and functions of the neck, it is no wonder that neck pain is so common. Many neck problems can damage your health if not corrected.

A fall or accident may cause sudden damage to the neck, or damage may occur slowly through vertebral subluxations, spinal imbalance, physical or emotional stress, or poor posture. In addition, these conditions can cause a reduction in the normal range of motion in the neck, as well as pain in the face, shoulder, arm, wrist, hand or fingers.

The Chiropractic approach is to find the source of the neck pain and gently correct it. By correcting the source of the problem, the body can heal naturally without nerve interference.

LOWER BACK & LEG PAIN

Back pain is the leading disability for younger Americans. Eight out of ten adults in the United States will experience a low back problem at some time in their lives. Sciatica, which is a severe pain in the leg, caused by compression, irritation, or inflammation of the sciatic nerve may frequently accompany back pain.

Many factors affect the sciatic nerve. Sitting in one position for long periods of time, as when driving or working at a computer, can increase the pain. Working out, running, or even simple things like walking, bending, or standing up may be difficult or painful.

Treatment will include a series of adjustments to move the related vertebrae back to a more normal position, to reduce the pressure on the nerve. In fact, many times a patient has come in unable to stand up right and, after a single treatment, can regain much of their mobility.

STRESS

Avoid stress? Impossible! If we properly handle stress it can mean a life of challenge, excitement, and growth.

What exactly happens when we face stress?

First messages are sent from your brain to your endocrine system (hormonal system) and certain chemicals are released. Then your body tries to adapt to the stress: it puts up a barricade. You tense your muscles, get a headache, cause inflammation in your body, and finally exhaustion sets in. When the body reaches the exhaustion stage it is more prone to illness and disease due to the weakened immune system.

One of the simplest ways of stress reduction is having a chiropractic spinal adjustment which frees you from a severe, chronic stress: The vertebral subluxation. You may have subluxations in your body for years without knowing it .This can cause your health to be compromised, energy to drop, you to age faster, develop disease and show increases in wear and tear in your body. Chiropractic care, by removing vertebral subluxation stress from your body, can improve the function of your nervous system and promotes better adaptation to stress, whether physical or psychological. No matter what your health problem, keeping your body free of the vertebral subluxations will permit you to better deal with stress, heal better and faster , function better and enjoy life more.

Scoliosis

Spines are not perfectly straight and that is normal; but when the spine curves or twists excessively it can be abnormal and it is called scoliosis(Greek for “crooked”).

People can live with scoliosis and never know that they have it without having a spinal screening and possibly a follow up x-ray if a S-curve is suspected. Scoliosis can cause uneven wearing and early degenerative disease in the spine. If the curve is very severe there have been cases where people have developed problems with their breathing and heart.

“Don’t accept surgical procedures or even bracing without first exploring less radical alternatives”

The Chiropractic approach is to correct vertebral subluxations or “bones out of alignment” a condition that interferes with the proper functioning of the nervous system and the body as a whole. One report of 100 chiropractic patients with scoliosis revealed 84% improved. In 6% the correction was total, in 35.6% there was significant correction; in 41.2% there was small correction, while 16.4% showed no improvement.

Children should have their spines checked regularly for scoliosis. If scoliosis is suspected they should be evaluated by a chiropractor to see if chiropractic care is a therapy that will help them before resorting to a more invasive procedures.

Pregnancy

If you are pregnant, one of the best things you can do is see a doctor of chiropractic. Chiropractic care can provide a flexible and balanced spine which frees your nerves and internal organs along with all of your joints of unwanted stress. These things are all essential for a healthy pregnancy and delivery. Women come to the chiropractor during their pregnancy for back pain, vomiting, rib pain, headaches, and general fatigue. These common complaints can all be relieved or at least lessened from a chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractors have even been able to correct a breech baby presentation. This has been helped through adjustments and massage to release tension in the pelvis and spine allowing the baby to turn to a position that is more proper for birth.

Many people ask: Is chiropractic safe during pregnancy? Yes. Chiropractors are trained in adjusting the spine of pregnant women and the doctors at Bidwell Chiropractic have special pillows and technique modifications specific for pregnant women.

Dr. Bidwell states “I got adjusted throughout my entire pregnancy up to three days prior to my delivery”
