Chiropractor for pregnancy houston

Pregnancy is a time of upheaval for your spinal health

Back pain is ubiquitous among pregnant women. During a time of great expectation and near-constant physiological and psychological change, the last thing you need is the accompaniment of pain. Yet still, as your child continues to grow, so to does the back pain. At Holmes Chiropractic, we are motivated by the idea that your pregnancy doesn’t have to be notable for its back pain. We use natural, pregnancy-specific modalities to help reduce pain, increase comfort and boost your chances of a successful pregnancy, free of medical intervention. 

Chiropractic for circulation houston

Better circulation makes you look, feel and function better

It is not to be underrated: ensuring that every cell in the body gets a constant flow of oxygen and nutrients is the best way to feel well. Oxygen is an essential component of cellular respiration, the process by which our body rebuilds, repairs and maintains. So the only question remaining is: why do so many of us forego the circulation we deserve. Our lifestyles often acquire bad habits that harm our circulation, many of which become engrained to the point of subconscious:

  • Chronic shallow breathing
  • Chronic poor posture
  • Lack of exercise
  • Insufficient hydration
  • Poor diet

When our circulation is inhibited, we simply suffer. Read on to find out about increasing oxygenation throughout the body with chiropractic.

Why are we so skilled at ignoring back pain?

Perhaps the answer is that we are too busy for back pain. Compare back pain to other conditions: the effect of an acute injury like a broken finger is immediately tangible- it may actually prevent you from performing a given task; a migraine tends to steamroll all other tasks, consuming your attention as the pain centers in your head; back pain, however, is not like these other injuries, at least at first. Back pain tends to start slow- an ache in the lower back, stiffness in the neck- and bide its time until it blooms into something much worse.

Performance-boosting therapy

If success in your sport is determined by fine margins, reaction times are crucial. Even a 10% reduction in your muscles’ response times can make the difference between first and second, or a personal best. At Holmes Chiropractic, we further measure the efficacy of chiropractic‘s role in athletic performance by observing improvement in measures of importance to the athlete. These areas of importance include:

  • Range of motion
  • Response time
  • Blood flow 
  • Recovery times between workouts
  • Injury prevention

Chiropractic’s role in reducing back pain, optimizing the nervous system and improving range of motion in all ages is well known. This blog will demonstrate chiropractic’s expanding role in aiding athletic performance.

Chiropractic is a health care system

Traditionally, spinal adjustment (or manipulation) was the bread and butter of the chiropractor’s office. Our form of healthcare believes that the function of your spine informs the way your body feels. Thus, chiropractic adjustment, which seeks to maintain alignment of the spine and proper functioning of the nervous system, is a central modality for maintaining wellness and keeping pain at bay. However, chiropractic is far from stuck in the past; in fact, it is a truly modern healthcare system that moves with the times. Given factors that include an aging population, a more sedentary workforce, and the ubiquity of less active forms of entertainment, we are treating more people than ever who are suffering from premature degeneration of the spine. The domino effect that this causes in terms of overall health is exactly why chiropractic care is more important than ever.
