GRAND RAPIDS, Mich– As we slowly come out of quarantine, we may be overdue for some self care, consisting of a visit to the chiropractic specialist, and this can be something for the whole family.
In the beginning of March, prior to the pandemic, we talked 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 talked to with a mother of 5 whose kids have been getting chiropractic treatment ever since they were born and have observed a positive outcome.
Whether it's dealing with gastrointestinal or feeding concerns, ear infections, bed wetting, colic and more, Dr. Osmer says she can help.
“So I think we've hardly scratched the surface on the benefits of chiropractic care,” says Osmer. “A great deal of people can be found in here for pain generated concerns, however when we're seeing kids that's not truly they're not always experiencing back pain.”
She goes on to discuss how see can refer kids out to other experts. “With feeding concerns, having the ability to evaluate exists, like some tension in the mouth that possibly requires a pediatric dental expert to evaluate, or a lactation specialist to assist mother with some feeding positions, digestive issues. Even things like ear infections … I'm not treating that ear infection itself, but what I'm making sure is that any fluid that's developing is draining (utilizing) an unique strategy.”
The primary concern on lots of people's mind is, does this hurt?
“Oh, it's actually gentle,” says the mommy, Brandy Grutter. “You do not hear anything like a pop or a fracture, and the majority of the time the chiropractic doctor can control (children) with simply their fingers. I've heard it being said resembles putting your finger into the skin of a tomato and simply putting a little pressure there and feeling the inside. So, it's absolutely nothing to be anxious about.”
This treatment has in general made a substantial distinction in one household's life.
“I am happy to state they're hardly ever ill, and I think that a lot of that involves not just chiropractic however also like whole body and entire mind health,” states Grutter. “None of the kids have actually ever had ear infections, they've never been on antibiotics. For the many part, they all have a truly positive idea of healthcare.”
Dr. Osmer tells us she's now taking visits again at FLOW Chiropractic, and everyone will be needed to use masks.
