Why a chiropractor for my daughter's constipation?

The nerves which exit from the spine and from the sacrum (tailbone) have control over her bowels. Especially with work in/around the tailbone area, chiropractic can stimulate those nerves to work better and thus help facilitate better peristalsis. Peristalsis is the force/motion of the intestines that moves digested food through and out of the GI tract. Please consult with a chiropractor. It has the potential to significantly improve your daughter's digestion.

There was just brand new research released that recommended chiropractic adjustments as a front-line treatment option for those experiencing sciatica. It would be more than worth it to consult with a doctor of chiropractic that can obtain an X-ray of the lower back region and get to the underlying problem! The doctor will locate any and all segments of the spine that are irritating the sciatic nerve and then begin to make the appropriate adjustments that will take pressure off of the nerves that go down the leg.

Best of luck!

I am sorry to hear about the whiplash incident. Treatment at the chiropractor will consist of spinal adjustments to realign the spinal bones and initiate better and more complete healing. Generally, the treatments are not painful and the doctor will start with light work and progress to more hands-on work as time progresses.

Respectfully,

Does scoliosis correct itself?

Not usually without the help of a healthcare provider. A chiropractic examination would be a great place to start!

Respectfully,

At what age is an adjustment safe for children?

13 is certainly okay to be adjusted. It is more important at that age than it is for a full grown adult. The longer you leave the back pain, the worse it gets over time. Respectfully, READ MORE

Yes, absolutely get checked by a chiropractor. I personally see at least 40-50 cases per week that are hip pain related. The nerves in the spine exit and go to the hips, that is priority number one. Then the chiropractor can check the hip sockets and SI joints themselves to see if the problem is local.
Great question, thank you for asking!

Absolutely. You may also assess your day-to-day routines and make any other lifestyle changes that would be conducive to less muscle inflammation. Switching to a more anti-inflammatory alkaline diet will be monumental for your success as well.

Pulling pain in back in morning. Could it be due to sleeping position?

That could be a result of several things, especially since it is worse in the morning. Changing a pillow may fix it. Or it could be a disc or joint inflammation or degeneration READ MORE
That could be a result of several things, especially since it is worse in the morning. Changing a pillow may fix it. Or it could be a disc or joint inflammation or degeneration issue (those tend to flare more in the morning). Switch the pillow you use and use a pillow under the legs (if you are a back sleeper) or between the knees (if you are a side sleeper). If changing your sleep habits does not work, try having a chiropractor examine the spine and possibly take a lateral X-ray of the spine to see if there is any damage through there.
