CHIROPRACTIC AND WEIGHT LOSS
There is no denying that it’s tough to lose weight. There are so many factors that go into it, all which differentiate between each person depending on current weight, age, sex, metabolism, genetics and a host of other variables. It can be difficult to figure out with route will work best for you, especially when there are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of diets, workout plans, supplements, cleanses, protein shakes and meal plans out there to choose from. And even once you decide on your plan of action, you may find that at a certain point, no matter what you do, you have hit a plateau in your weight loss where the pounds just wont budge. This may be a time where some extra help is required, and fortunately, there is a natural treatment that may be the answer.
Chiropractic treatments may be able to supplement your weight loss goals by helping your body get rid of the weight faster under safe circumstances. There are chiropractors that specialize in aiding in weight loss not only with chiropractic adjustments, but by offering nutritional and exercise advice as well. These types of chiropractors are educated in nutrition science and should be able to work with you on creating a nutrition plan that is well-suited for your needs based on your metabolism and other factors. By approaching weight loss in this multi-pronged way, the patient is more likely to see better, longer lasting results.
By getting regular chiropractic adjustments, your spine may be relieved of pressure that could be causing subluxations, or dysfunctions of the spine. With these subluxations removed, then exercise may become easier and your diet might start being more effective. Working out without any pain should enable longer, more intense workouts that have the ability to burn more calories, which should contribute to greater weight loss.
Chiropractic adjustments may in and of themselves give your muscles a tone up. Although it’s not a match for those dumbbells, think of the chiropractic adjustments as a supplement to your lifting much like your protein shake. Adjustments may help get rid of adipose tissue, which may lead to better muscle tone, making it harder for the body to put on excess weight. Adjustments may also be beneficial after you complete your workout by allowing your muscles to relax, which might help them get ready for your next workout session. During this time your chiropractor might be able to spot potential injuries, which may help fix certain ailments before they turn into a issue that might hinder your weight loss.
CHIROPRACTIC AND KIDS
Chiropractors have been caring for children for more than a 100 years. Many common childhood ailments will respond to this safe, natural form of health care. More and more parents— especially those who are already chiropractic patients themselves—are seeking chiropractic care for their children. A child encounters many physical stresses during their growing years. The resulting problems in children’s spines can occur at almost any point in their development and growth.
The earliest challenge a growing spine faces is the position it is forced to adopt in utero. Many women will have heard of foetal positions that can cause problems with labour (brow, breech, transverse, posterior, ascynclitic, etc). What is less well known is that these foetal positions can also cause problems in the baby’s spine as well. Spinal segments can be pushed out of place or jammed by the position of the baby in the womb. If this position is less than optimal, it can result in a longer and more difficult trip through the birth canal, which can compound the spinal problems. In this way, even natural birthing methods can stress an infant’s spine and nervous system—not to mention interventions such as induction, forceps, vonteuse suction, or ceasarean section. The latter (which account for an alarmingly large percentage of births in Australia), while appear to offer a less traumatic birth for the child, can actually create additional traumas and compromises to the infant’s future health and well-being.
The cause of many newborn health complaints such as colic, reflux, breastfeeding difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions, and chronic infections can often be traced to nervous system irritation caused by spinal and cranial misalignments.
Since significant spinal trauma can occur at, or prior to birth, many parents elect to have their newborn’s spine checked right after birth. Many developmental milestones such as learning to hold up the head, sitting upright, crawling, and walking are all activities that are affected by spinal alignment and are important times to have a child checked by a chiropractor. Additionally, falls, sports injuries, playground bumps, heavy school bags and sitting all day in the classroom are all physical stresses to the growing child’s spine and nervous system.
The first thing a chiropractor will do is to conduct a thorough history of your child’s health and any complaints. This is followed by a complete physical examination of the child’s spine. Most chiropractors are trained to evaluate paediatric spinal problems, and will use gentle, specific skills to find and adjust any involved spinal areas.
Spinal adjustments for infants and young children involve very light fingertip pressure to correct spinal misalignments. This amount of “force” is often not more than a finger touch. This is usually sufficient to restore mobility to spinal joints which have become locked and are causing interference to the normal nervous system function. Occasionally, the adjustments will make a ‘popping’ sound when the spinal joints are moved; however, this is not always heard when children’s spines are adjusted. Other techniques involve the use of hand-held instruments which offer specific and gentle correction.
