GRAND RAPIDS, Mich– As we gradually come out of quarantine, we might be overdue for some self care, including a see to the chiropractic practitioner, and this can be something for the whole household.
In the start of March, before the pandemic, we spoke to Dr. Theresa Osmer, BS, DC, of FLOW Chiropractic in Grand Rapids on how treatment for pediatrics is ending up being more typical in the chiropractic world. And we spoke with a mom of 5 whose kids have actually been getting chiropractic treatment since they were born and have actually seen a favorable outcome.
Whether it's handling digestive or feeding problems, ear infections, bed wetting, colic and more, Dr. Osmer states she can assist.
“So I believe we've hardly scratched the surface on the benefits of chiropractic care,” states Osmer. “A great deal of people been available in here for pain produced issues, however when we're seeing kids that's not truly they're not necessarily experiencing neck and back pain.”
She goes on to discuss how see can refer children out to other specialists. “With feeding concerns, having the ability to examine exists, like some stress in the mouth that maybe requires a pediatric dental expert to assess, or a lactation expert to assist mother with some feeding positions, digestion concerns. Even things like ear infections … I'm not treating that ear infection itself, but what I'm ensuring is that any fluid that's building up is draining (utilizing) a special method.”
The main question on many people's mind is, does this hurt?
“Oh, it's really gentle,” states the mommy, Brandy Grutter. “You do not hear anything like a pop or a fracture, and the majority of the time the chiropractic physician can control (kids) with simply their fingers. I've heard it being said resembles putting your finger into the skin of a tomato and just putting a little pressure there and feeling the inside. So, it's certainly absolutely nothing to be worried about.”
This treatment has overall made a substantial difference in one family's life.
“I am happy to say they're hardly ever ill, and I believe that a lot of that pertains to not only chiropractic however likewise like entire body and entire mind health,” states Grutter. “None of the kids have ever had ear infections, they've never been on antibiotics. For the most part, they all have a truly positive concept of health care.”
Dr. Osmer informs us she's now taking appointments again at FLOW Chiropractic, and everyone will be required to use masks.
