I have been coming to Integrative Sports and Wellness and love it. I have seen everyone from spine surgeons, physical therapists, and other muscle specialists and none of them have really been able to help me or lead me in the right direction. In just the few first weeks i went here my activity level completely changed and I can now play golf again pain free the way that i have always wanted to. I can play 18 holes now when i could only play 12-13 holes before my back completely gave out. I love the Kinesio Tape that Dr. Russ puts on my back. In fact that first week I was able to play 36 holes in 2 days and my back was barely even sore after my round. Treatments are definitely helping me! I look forward to the rest of my treatment plan. Thanks for giving my life back. Jake R. Lakeway Tx

Children also benefit from regular spinal exams and adjustments!

Our spine usually develops perfectly during the coarse of pregnancy with only a few exceptions.  It is the process during birth and the time after children may develop spinal misalignments and disrupt the normal function of the spine.  Spinal segments may be pushed or pulled out of alignment during the birthing process.  Research has suggested that many problems our children encounter early in their life can be a result of birth trauma. 

It seems children never run out of energy, they go all day long running, jumping, and playing hard.  Sometimes all this physical activity puts stress on the spinal nerves and spinal column; this may lead to lowering a child’s resistance and open the door for many illnesses.  Spinal problems can also occur in children as a result of the frequent falls in their young lives.  Any sudden, unsupported movement of the head and neck in an infant can open the door for vertebral subluxations.  On the other end of the spine, young children often fall onto their sacrum as they learn how to walk, putting enormous amounts of stress on the large sacroiliac joints.  These joints are important because they offer a transition from our lower body to our truck and upper body.

Common indicators of spinal problems may include the child's head consistently being tilted to one side; restricted head or neck motion to one side; disturbed sleeping patterns where the child sleeps for only an hour or two at a time; feeding difficulties in the very young infant; the infant may have difficulty nursing at the breast on one particular side.

Common childhood disorders can also sometimes indicate a spinal problem. Persistent earaches, sore throats, colic, headaches, bed-wetting, and growing pains are some of the more common problems for which parents bring their children to the chiropractor.

The slightest misalignment can cause a child to suffer from adult type problems, such as headaches, back pain, poor concentration, and irritablity. For many, a simple, painless spinal exam will allow your Chiropractor to find, and treat if necessary any misalignments.

Chiropractic Care for children is much more than just spinal exams. Your Chiropractor can also examine and monitor the growth of your child’s body, address important nutritional needs, offer correct exercise programs, and help to prepare your child for a healthy adulthood.
