Headaches and Chiropractic Care

Headaches are common, but not normal.  Headaches can have a negative impact on your career, family life, overall health and your happiness.

We Know What Your Problem Is!

Your brain is unbalanced!  The primary cause of headaches is electrical inefficiency within the brain, which means that your brain is unable to communicate properly with your body. (Chiropractors call this a subluxation.)

How to Fix Headaches with Chiropractic Care

Get adjusted!  KST Chiropractic Adjustments balance brain function and a balanced brain doesn’t produce headaches.  Our doctor’s help people with all types of headaches and the equipment we use can discover any inefficiency in brain function.

Ear Infections and Chiropractic Care

Costs for chiropractic care are significantly less than those associated with antibiotics or surgeries, which can cost thousands of dollars.

In a recent study, children under the age of five who suffering from ear infections were treated under a chiropractor’s care, 93% of all episodes improved. 43% of the children better within one to two treatments, and 75% were better within 10 days or fewer. We take your child’s care seriously and can offer an individual plan that will lead your child to health. Please consider chiropractic as an alternative method to treat ear infections before turning to harsh alternatives.

Try KST Chiropractic to Support Infants with Colic

When a child cries for an extended period of time but is well-fed, rested, and comfortable, there’s a chance they may suffer from colic. Colic is defined by extended crying for a set period of time, which most doctors define as greater than three hours a day, three days a week, and more than three weeks in a row.

The birth process can be tramatic for babies, potentially making an infant more susceptible to disease and sickness. A very gentle and soothing, but powerful, KST chiropractic adjustment can be provided as soon as the first day of birth.

See this baby get adjusted with KST here.

In one study, 73 chiropractors adjusted 316 infants (median age 5.7 weeks at initial examination) with moderate to severe colic (average 5.2 hours of crying per day). The infant’s mothers were provided a diary and kept track of the baby’s symptoms, intensity and length of the colicky crying as well as how comfortable the infant seemed. 94% of the children within 14 days of chiropractic care (usually three visits) showed a satisfactory response. After four weeks, the improvements were maintained. One fourth of these infants showed great improvement after the very first chiropractic adjustment. The remaining infants all showed improvement within 14 days. Note: 51% of the infants had undergone prior unsuccessful treatment, usually drug therapy.

Carpal Tunnel and Chiropractic Care

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a problem with the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the hand. It occurs when the median nerve gets compressed in the carpal tunnel—a narrow tunnel at the wrist—made up of bones and soft tissues, such as nerves, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. The compression may result in pain, weakness, and/or numbness in the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder, which radiates up into the forearm. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the most common of the “entrapment neuropathies”—compression or trauma of the body’s nerves in the hands or feet.

Don’t Wait! Come in Today.

Chiropractic care for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can potentially eliminate the need for surgery or prescription medication. Diagnosis, which involves an examination by a doctor of chiropractic, is critical to receiving the right type of care plan and resolving symptoms. KST Chiropractic treatment often improves range-of-motion and flexibility, and is a gentle and noninvasive alternative to the the harsh effects and long-term recovery period of surgery.

Bedwetting and KST Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic adjustments can potentially provide a solution to suffering families and change the life of a child by working to improve confidence and self-esteem. Chiropractic care isn’t an end-all solution for the treatment of bed wetting, but it can work with the brain to improve communication to the bladder.

Back Pain and Chiropractic Care

Whether it’s the result of a labor-intensive job, pregnancy, a wrong move at the gym, stress from care taking, or even just discomfort after a long day of gardening, back pain is one of the first and most important signs signifying a problem that needs attention.

Chiropractic care offers a natural solution to restore proper communication between the brain and the body.  Treatment is often quick, pain-free, non-invasive, and doesn’t involve medications. After completing a care plan, many patients report feeling better than they had before they even had any back ailment. Your individual care plan will address your unique issues and will lead you to the best solution for back pain, and optimal function.

 

Asthma and Chiropractic Care

During the breathing process, signals in the nervous system travel from our brain to the body. By balancing the brain, patients can experience relief of their breathing-related symptoms.

In a study of eight pediatic patients with asthma that received chiropractic care, seven of the eight patients who completed the study were able to reduce/discontinue medication.  The children used for this study had never received any chiropractic care to participation in this study. All participants showed measurable improvement on radiographs, which correlated with an improvement in asthma symptoms in seven of the eight cases. This paper also includes an interesting discussion on the innervation of the lungs and its relationship to the vertebral subluxation complex.

Allergies and Chiropractic Care

Your brain controls every cell in your body including your entire immune system. In the case of allergies, the immune system is reacting “defensively” against certain foods which can cause a variety of symptoms. Chiropractic adjustments balance brain activity and allow your system to take back control of the immune system. We have a comprehensive nutritional program that identifies the key problems areas like diet, nutrient and enzyme levels, fatty acid and mineral balance, and toxicity levels.

Why You Need Regular Chiropractic Adjustments to Improve an Allergy Condition

During the breathing process, signals in the nervous system travel from our brain through the spinal cord and then continue on to innervate the lung tissue. By stimulating certain areas of the body with gentle chiropractic adjustments, your brain will send out the signal that pushes the “brake pedal” on airway constriction which allows the lung tissues to relax. Patients can experience relief of their breathing-related symptoms quite quickly, especially when combined with essential oil therapies.

In a two-month study of patients who had chiropractic care to help their breathing symptoms, patients who received regular adjustments had a 45% decrease overall in the number of attacks, and 31% of patients were able to decrease or avoid steroid medications. These results were highlighted in the treatment of asthma in children.
