As they grow, children experience many falls and mishaps which may seem rather insignificant at the time. As time passes however, these minor injuries can accumulate and become a significant health issue with a lifetime of damaging effects. Studies show that many children who experience symptoms of colic, ear infections and asthma have spinal subluxations impairing their nervous system function.

As a concerned parent, you have probably already started to research the effectiveness of chiropractic pediatric care. The nervous system is the master control system of growth, repair and the function of every tissue and organ in the body.  It serves to,interpret the messages coming from the environment and deciding which messages to send to the body so that it can adjust itself appropriately. Regular chiropractic care keeps this system in correct alignment so that your child’s body receives the correct signals for growing and functioning correctly.

Back pain can come and go--temporary relief followed by frustration. Pain is considered chronic if it lasts three months or longer, and is often age-related.  But it can also be the result of a prior injury. Have you been told that surgery is your only option to relieve your chronic back pain?

Low back pain can improve with time (it may take months or years) as the natural aging process as the disc space has less motion. With continued degeneration, bony growth around the disc will try to capture the excess motion. Because degenerative disc disease is, for the most part, a non-crippling, non-progressive type of back condition, continuing non-surgical treatments to manage the painful symptoms is always an option.

Only the patient can decide if the pain and inability to perform normal daily activities is bad enough to warrant spinal fusion (or any other) type of surgery. And the best way for a patient to make an informed decision is to fully understand the trade-offs between spinal fusion and other non-surgical and surgical treatment options. Don’t make rushed decisions for extensive medical procedures until the origin of the pain is found. Not only may they not help; they could make the pain worse.

Whether amateurs or professionals, it is probable that most people will experience some type of injury related to a sport or fitness regimen. Today’s culture urges us to exercise in order to keep fit and to avoid weight gain. It is a fun way, either with a team or partner, to burn calories, tone muscles, and increase metabolism. Unfortunately, an injury can occur as the result of poor warm-up and stretching techniques, years of poor posture, or a previously undetected spine or joint problem.

Failing to receive the appropriate treatment promptly and continuing to overuse the injured area may prolong the healing process and result in a chronic injury, preventing the athlete from achieving his or her peak level of performance. Some will try to mask the symptoms and the pain with drugs. But if left untreated, the injury will only be compounded with time.

Before beginning an exercise program or training for an athletic event, check with your sports chiropractor for advice on ways to prevent injury. Here are a few guidelines to consider:
