Chiropractic care can help you and your parents to avoid the need for a nursing home! Dr. Iam Coulter from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College compiled evidence that indicates some of the benefits of chiropractic care for the middle aged and the elderly.

1. 66% of non-chiropractic patients developed arthritis whereas only 44% of chiropractic patients reported having arthritis
2. Chiropractic patients were able to participate in more strenuous activity later in life
3. Years after Iam’s research was conducted, 48% of non-chiropractic patients were documented as needing to be hospitalized for a serious illness whereas only 26% of those that received chiropractic care were hospitalized

Chiropractic treatment is safe and effective! Chiropractic care can aid you and your family in living a longer more mobile life without dependence on nursing homes and medication.

Chiropractics Activates Neurons Against Autism!

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

The diagnosis of autism has rapidly become more prevalent in the last decade! It is currently unclear whether the increase is due to heightened awareness or an actual increase in the development of the disease. Either way the children suffering from Autism and subsequent seizures that result must be treated in the least invasive way possible with chiropractic care! Can chiropractics treat autism?

Yes! Not only can chiropractic care treat autism, but it can also aide in relieving the development of epilepsy that is often related. Evidence has shown chiropractic can aide in the reversal of the constriction of proper blood and nerve flow to and from the brain via detection and correction of subluxations. Additionally, an imbalance of nerve flow to the various regions (sympathetic and parasympathetic) in the brain is a prime component in the hibernation of the neurological function of the brain. With a chiropractic adjustment the nerve flow is restored to the proper regions of the brain. An adjustment activates the hibernating neurons by restoring the proper function of the nervous system. In other words, when a chiropractor adjusts a child’s spine and returns it to the proper alignment, normal signals are allowed to flow to, from and through-out the brain. This can reverse higher-center ischemia and restore the brain-body balance in autistic patients suffering from epilepsy!
