Chiropractic ensures an optimum functioning of the nervous system through treatment of the locomotor system, mainly the spinal column. Chiropractic can therefore in principle be applied to any mammal, including humans. It can be useful in any phase in your life: right after birth, during pregnancy, at work, in your leisure time or during your retirement.
Everything begins in the mother’s womb, where a vital connection is formed between mother and child. Optimum health of the mother guarantees a maximum development of the foetus in the womb. Birth is man’s first trauma, regardless of whether it happens naturally or with a Caesarean section. During the birth the baby experiences different pressure on the skull and on the vulnerable spine. This is cause disturbances of the neurological system.
A check-up with a chiropractor in the first weeks after birth prevents these stresses from leading to the following symptoms: torticollis, excessive crying, poor sucking reflex, trouble sleeping, deformation of the skull, etc.
While a child grows up, he/she undergoes various learning stages on a motor, sensory, emotional and cognitive level. These stages are incredibly important and ensure an optimum connection between his/her brain and his/her body.
During this period, your child’s nervous system develops very quickly, in spite of the various traumas that can occur during childhood. The chiropractor guides your child through this phase of life through adapted techniques in order to guarantee your child’s growth potential as much as possible.
The body of a pregnant woman undergoes major changes on a physiological, physical and mental level. This continually challenges her nervous system for nine months. Several complaints can occur during this period, such as nausea, stomach problems, respiratory problems, headache, dizziness, fatigue, backache, sciatic pain, and so on.
During pregnancy the chiropractor uses various soft techniques to ensure that the mom-to- be can enjoy this unique period as much as possible.
Our lifestyle and our daily activities influence public health. Backache is the most common cause of invalidity worldwide. More than 80% of the adult population suffers from backache at some time in their life and many believe that their work activities are the greatest cause.
Specialists are not surprised by this high percentage. It’s undoubtedly the result of the evolution towards a more sedentary lifestyle. From a young age, there can be complaints in the form of headache, neck ache with or without radiance to the arms, backache, shoulder pain, dizziness, fatigue, etc.
From a certain age, our body is less capable of compensating the accumulated load from the past and/or present. It’s perfectly normal if you then start to suffer from certain complaints. This does not mean however that you need to accept this and simply have to learn to live with these complaints. The chiropractor stimulates your body in such a way that you are perfectly capable of carrying out all your favourite activities painlessly and thus enjoy your retirement optimally.
