Feeling vs Function – What Does It Mean and Why Is It Important to You?

Our bodies are great at getting us to a functional state of being even although there may be something underlying going on. Headaches, digestive issues, tiredness, and a whole host of other symptoms may be warning signs that there is undue stress on your nervous system.

The usual approach for the treatment of these problems and for more serious conditions is, of course, the use of medication to reduce the presenting symptoms. Chiropractic care, however, aims to deal with the underlying cause of the symptoms, giving long-term relief and reducing dependence on medication.

These truths apply to babies and children, too, and pediatric chiropractic is making huge strides in proving its benefits.

Chiropractic Care and High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is ravaging our society today. About 75 million American adults have high blood pressure—that’s about one-third of our adult population. In 2014, over 400,000 deaths were linked to high blood pressure, and only about half of those suffering from it have it under control.

High blood pressure can lead to heart disease and increased risk of stroke, both of which are in the top five leading causes of death in the United States. While several lifestyle choices and medical conditions can increase the likelihood that a person will have high blood pressure, most medical doctors cannot pinpoint the […]

Chiropractic Care and Ear Infections

Ear infections, or otitis media, are common in children younger than age 6, though some older children and adults also suffer from them. While many view ear infections as a normal part of childhood, the epidemic of otitis media is largely preventable. In years past and sometimes today, doctors have prescribed antibiotics to treat ear infections. While antibiotics typically do rid children of their ear infections, they come with their fair share of risks that typically outweigh the potential reward. Additionally, many ear infections are viral, meaning that antibiotics will be ineffective in resolving them.

While 80% of uncomplicated ear infections […]

If we feel good are we healthy?

This is not to mention that 25% of U.S. children are taking a prescription drug on a regular basis. The U.S. also spends more on healthcare than any other country in the world ($3,000,000,000 or $9,523 per person per year). You may think that spending more money than any other country (nearly double of anyone else) and taking more drugs than any other country  would […]
