Who Do We Treat?

At Paris Family Chiropractic, we treat patients of all ages. The spine houses the central nervous system which controls all body function.  If the spine is improperly aligned, the nervous system will not function properly and your health will not be as good as it can be.  Chiropractic is an all-natural alternative to prescriptions and surgery. 

 

Infants/Toddlers

Because children grow and develop so quickly, it is vital that their nervous system is functioning at its full potential.  Specific and gentle chiropractic adjustments are given to the child's spine to correct the misalignment, thus restoring function.  Pediatric adjustments are different from adult adjustments as they are much lighter in force and are many times done with the doctors pinky finger or Activator (chiropractic instrument).

 

Common health issues which chiropractic can help with in pediatric patients:

  • Acid reflux

  • Bedwetting

  • Birth trauma

  • Colic

  • Constipation/diarrhea

  • Difficulty breastfeeding

  • Ear infections

  • Fussiness

  • Improved immune system

  • Sleeping problems

  • Torticollis

School-aged kids

Children this age are still growing and developing quickly, and its vital their nervous system is functioning at its full potential.  Kids in Pre-K and elementary school are adjusted differently than adults as their bones are still forming and developing.  Depending on the age of the child, the doctors index finger may be used or an Activator.

Adults

Many adults see a chiropractor to improve their overall health, prevent pain, and to deal with a current health concern.  A misalignment of the spine is called a subluxation.  A subluxation can sometimes pinch nerves, but more commonly it will interfere with nerve transmissions from the brain to the body and back to the brain again. When there is interference between your brain and body, your performance (health) suffers.   Throughout your life, you continue to do things that can and will cause you to subluxate. The majority of the time your body corrects these subluxations all by itself. However, sometimes the subluxations are not able to be self corrected by the body, and that’s where the chiropractor comes into play.
