This treatment doesn't use surgeries or drugs but it can work hand in hand with medical treatments to further treat a patient’s condition. Some people think that chiropractic care is for adults only. Millions of parents seek chiropractic care for their children who have ear infection, colds, sinus, poor posture and even behavioral problems.

Can chiropractors help reverse diabetes?

Increasingly, number of diabetic patients are escalating that’s why researchers are even looking up on the possibility of chiropractic care as a treatment for it.
Apparently there are research evidences that chiropractic has played part on the wellness protocol of diabetic patients. Diabetes, being the fifth deadliest in US and a growing epidemic worldwide, is more than enough reason to cling to even a little hope that chiropractic might help.
Seeing the connection between diabetes and chiropractic may be a little difficult. But if you try to look through the eyes of an electrician, it’ll easier to understand. Malfunctions or short circuits may occur if the flow of current through the wires of appliances or areas of the house is interfered.
Likewise, disturbed nerve supply from the upper neck or middle back causes health problems. The ability of pancreas to produce enzymes to digest proteins, fats and carbohydrates, or insulin production, or both can suffer. As a result, diabetes or hy…

Why You Shouldn’t Ignore Your Kids Back Pain

When a kid complains about something, sometimes we simply brush it off thinking the kid is simply seeking attention/trying to ask for something/over reacting. However, when it’s backache, we shouldn't take it so lightly. Just think of the growing number of children suffering from scoliosis (a medical condition wherein there’s a curve from side to side in a person’s spine) until their teenage and adult years just because their condition wasn’t taken care of early on.
What happens then is that, the minor misalignment in the pliable spine of a child develops into a curvatures that leads to serious spinal problems in the future.
Scoliosis Development

First: The normal front to back arches in the spine fails to develop, that results to spinal disc carrying unusual weight.
Second: It develops into subluxation wherein the center of some disc leans to one side, and the vertebra to the other. As a reaction to this misalignment, the spine shifts to another side at another level resulting to sc…

Chiropractic Care: Does It Cure Hearing Loss Too?

When you hear chiropractic care, you immediately think of back pains right? But did it ever occur to you that it could also treat high blood pressure, digestion, and even hearing loss? Apparently, chiropractic doctors are saying that they can indeed help with these.  
After receiving spinal treatment, there was a patient who said that his hearing loss was cured. Releasing this statement has placed chiropractors into hot water, critics says that chiropractors do not have any solid evidence to prove these claims.
However, for a little contradiction, isn’t it science is not exactly based on theory or experiment alone? Chiropractors and other spine specialist who administer spinal manipulation, dedicated time to study what other condition can be treated by manual adjustments that is given by either chiropractors or osteopaths. But despite the extensive study, they wouldn’t have concluded that their treatment can actually help the likes of blood pressure, infantile colic or hearing loss if t…

Bone Popping Sound During Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments

Do you have the habit of cracking your knuckles because it feels good? But the idea of hearing those popping sounds when you already are suffering from back pain, is a little disturbing to you?
That’s why even if you already received numerous advice from trusted people and your primary care doctor to go to a chiropractic clinic and try spinal adjustments you're still hesitant? Actually, those popping noise are due to the pockets of air or bubbles from the fluid surrounding your joints that popped when the joint tissues were stretched during the manual adjustment. Which means that those cracking sound are completely normal.
Expect soreness and tightness in your muscles after receiving back adjustments, on the other hand, you’ll be able to move your back more comfortably. Aside from spinal adjustment, muscle therapy may also be included to make pain relief faster each chiropractic session.
Since musculoskeletal problems takes time before they heal, some preventive care will also be reco…
