Chiropractic Care Visits Are Not Just for Adults
Chiropractic care is safe and beneficial at any age, from pregnancy to birth and throughout childhood into adulthood. Very young children can benefit from chiropractic care when treatment is started early. Care during pregnancy is a wonderful addition to prenatal care. It can ease back pain, neck pain, and sciatica that are all common conditions during pregnancy. Dr. John Calhoun safely and comfortably adjusts pregnant women to relieve symptoms while accommodating the pregnancy and helping prepare the pelvis for delivery.
The alignment of the spine is very important for healthy development. The birth process puts a child’s small body through trauma. When started early, chiropractic treatment using TRT works well while a child’s body is still growing. A misaligned spine that is left untreated can lead to health conditions such as ear infections, asthma, headaches, bed-wetting, digestive issues, tension, and ADHD.
What is TRT?
TRT stands for torque release technique and was designed after a considerable amount of scientific research. It is a precise way to deliver the perfect amount of energy consistently and reliably in a gentle manner. It quickly stimulates the nervous system in a way that releases and reduces tension to assist the body to self-correct. TRT combines the best systems of assessment and treatment and helps locate and reduce subluxations. This method uses an integrator instrument to help reproduce what the doctor’s hands were intended to do with more precision and less force. The integrator can deliver a specific frequency into the nerve endings of the spinal column in the precise location where nerve function has become irritated.
This gentle method is often used in pediatric chiropractic care. The small body of a child or an infant is more delicate than an adult’s body. This technique uses the child’s legs to determine where the spine is out of alignment. The expert then applies pressure to strategic points on the spinal column to align it properly. The torque release technique provides an overall enhancement to a patient’s health and well-being, relief from sleep issues, colic, and boosts the immune and nervous system.
