Make a difference to your family’s health and wellness through chiropractic adjustments and other techniques with the help of Dr. Gary McDowell at McDowell Family Chiropractic in La Mesa, CA.

Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustments for the Whole Family

You might have heard of family chiropractic care, but it might leave you wondering why everyone in your family would need adjustments. Below, Dr. McDowell and the team at McDowell Family Chiropractic in La Mesa, CA, share some of the benefits of chiropractic adjustments for each stage of life.

Understanding Adjustments

Adjustments are a method employed to restore alignment to the body. Once aligned, pressure and strain and the nerves, muscles, discs, ligaments, tendons, and other components is relieved. This provides various benefits, including pain relief, better nerve function, and more. How do those benefits apply to the different members of your family? Learn more below.

Babies, Children, and Teens

The first 18 to 20 years are full of activities and incidents. They begin with a journey through the birth canal, which can often lead to misalignment. Over the years, there are tumbles when learning to walk, falls on the playground, sports accidents, and more that can impact the musculoskeletal system. Restoring alignment can undo the damage, providing pain relief and resulting in less missed play time, fewer headaches, more energy, better concentration, and more.

Working Adults

Whether you sit behind a desk, do manual labor, or do something in between for work, your spinal column is at risk of injuries, such as misalignment, herniated discs, muscle strains, and more. These injuries can lead to missed work days and missed time with loved ones. Adjustments can treat these injuries through natural means so that you can stay on top of your obligations and enjoy your home time.

Older Family Members

As we age, our bodies change in many ways. Spinal discs and joints begin to wear down, we can’t move as well as we once did, and everyday tasks tend to become a challenge.

While changes are natural, regular adjustments can help restore musculoskeletal health so that any changes don’t impact you as much. You can enjoy fewer aches and pains, a better range of motion, increased energy, improved flexibility, improved balance, and more.

You have the power to keep your loved ones healthy and in optimal shape by bringing them in to see Dr. McDowell at McDowell Family Chiropractic in La Mesa, CA, for customized chiropractic adjustments. Call (619) 670-7700 to schedule an appointment today.
