Preparing Yourself For A Long Hospital Stay

Welcome to my site about tactics you can use to cope with hospitalization. I am Edward Collins. I created this site after a long hospitalization left me feeling uncomfortable and dying to go home. I was ill-prepared for the lengthy stay at that facility. Despite my nurses and doctors’ best efforts, I felt lonely, bored and somewhat isolated during my stay. On this site, I will help you prepare for hospitalization well before you need your next medical procedure. Please come by my site daily to learn the information you need to know. Thank you for visiting my website about preparing for hospitalization.

Three Reasons Your Teenager Should Be Seeing a Chiropractor

Health & Medical Blog

Seeing the chiropractor is sometimes thought of as a measure that older adults take to ease the aches and pains that come with aging. But in fact, even your teenage son or daughter can benefit from seeing a chiropractor for regular adjustments. Here's a look at three reasons your teen should be seeing a chiropractor.

Growth spurts can place tension on the spine.

Teens can shoot up several inches in height in just a few months. All of the muscles and tendons do not always grow at the same rate, which can leave some tissues pulling on one another. This can be uncomfortable for your teen, and the tension from a growth spurt may even pull some of the vertebrae out of alignment. These misaligned vertebrae can place pressure on nerves that control every body function, from digestion to the stress response, and this can have an array of negative effects on your teen's health. A chiropractor can adjust your teen's spine, keeping it properly aligned in spite of the stress placed on it by growth spurts. This helps promote overall health and well-being while also preventing some of the soreness that can come with rapid growth.

Chiropractic care maintains flexibility to prevent injuries.

Most teens are pretty active, participating in school sports and engaging in other physical activities with friends. If your teen is not flexible and limber, they're more likely to pull a muscle, fall down and break a bone, or strain a tendon during physical activities. A chiropractic adjustment makes sure the spine is properly lined up for maximum flexibility so your teen can use their body properly and hopefully avoid injuries.

Teens are under a lot of stress.

The pressure of having to perform well academically, fit in with friends, and adjust to a more mature role in the family can leave teens feeling stressed and anxious. Many teens suffer from mood disorders like depression and anxiety, at least in part due to this stress. Chiropractic adjustments can help keep stress levels down while also keeping these mood issues at bay. When the spine is out of alignment, it can place pressure on nerves related to the stress response, interfering with the release of hormones that control moods. With regular adjustments, your teen should be able to think more clearly, control their moods more easily, and handle everyday stress with less anxiety.

If you're looking for a way to improve your teen's mental and physical health overall, don't hesitate to bring them to a chiropractor. Regular adjustments will continue to benefit them as they grow, change, and face the challenges of life.
