Kids and Chiropractic Part 1

Did you know most of the health problems adults have are triggered by something that happened when they were a kid? In this week’s new episode of The MaxLiving Podcast, Dr. Nick Wilson and Dr. Traci Gross discuss the importance of kids receiving chiropractic care and how to be proactive about your health – not reactive.

Dr. Nick tells a story of a 55 year old patient who took a reactive approach to his health, and waited to get care until after his pain had been bothering him for a while. This patient suffered a fall on his neck when he was 15 years old, and unfortunately didn’t ever give his body the support it needed to heal properly. “When you have an accident or injury that isn’t taken care of, it’s going to worsen over time – and you might not feel that worsening,” (Dr. Nick). If this patient had gotten the proper care he needed after his injury, he probably wouldn’t be in so much pain now, 40 years later. It’s extremely important to bring your child to a chiropractor whether they are injured or not, in order to prevent and correct injuries that could damage their health for the rest of their life.

You might think chiropractic care is only for adults who suffer with back pain – but that isn’t the case. Chiropractic is a great tool for those of ALL AGES whether they are in pain or not! By receiving chiropractic care at a young age, our doctors can prevent and correct any spinal misalignment so your child can function at their maximum potential for years to come.

When it comes to putting your child’s health first, consider the difference of care from medical doctors and pediatric chiropractors. While medical doctors ask what symptoms your child is experiencing and give them something to mask the symptoms, pediatric chiropractors are focused on how to fix this problem for the long term. Chiropractors get to the root cause of the problem, and respect the body in order to support it in the natural healing process.

Dr. Traci says that misalignment of the spine and damage to the nervous system will oftentimes show up in the form of a symptom. The most common symptoms babies show are colic, torticollis, or when they have trouble nursing on both sides. These symptoms can be discouraging for parents because they try everything they can to help their baby and nothing seems to help them. Contrary to popular belief though, symptoms aren’t always a bad thing. Symptoms are “our body’s way of telling us what needs our attention,” (Dr. Traci). By paying attention to these signs, we can give the body the support it needs to function properly. Our doctors will get to the root of the problem and remove interference in order for your child to live their best life.

Episode 1 - The Toxins in Your Everyday Life: Cleaners and Cosmetics

Dr. Nick Wilson is joined by Dr. Traci Gross today as they dive into keeping you and your family healthy from the inside out and keep toxins away from your everyday life. This episode focuses on Toxicity. What is it? Where does it come from? How do you prevent it? Toxins are pervasive, existing in everything from the air we breathe and the food we eat to the cleaning and personal care products we use. According to one estimation, we may come into contact with as many as 2,100,000 toxins every day. Why is this concerning? Because toxins, when introduced to the body, have been observed to cause everything from metabolic changes and endocrine (hormone) interferences to respiratory issues and certain types of cancer. As Dr. Nick and Dr. Traci explain, we are often taught that our health is dependent on our genes, and therefore any health issues we face are based on heredity. However, this podcast asks you to “exit the conventional” and explore alternative methods of understanding and promoting your health. Though we can pass on hereditary traits from one generation to the next, it is largely our lifestyle choices that decide which genes express themselves. That means even if your family is predisposed to heart disease or a type of cancer, you may be able to ‘turn off’ these genes with the right lifestyle choices. One of the biggest ways to positively influence your health? You guessed it: Minimizing Toxins. When toxins are introduced to the body by being breathed in through the lungs, absorbed through the skin, or eaten, they are often stored in our fat cells. Our body is intelligent enough to recognize toxins as dangerous and therefore tries to encase ...

The Big Idea with Dr. Ben Rall

The Big Idea with Dr. Ben Rall Ever heard of “the big idea” in chiropractic? If not, you’re in for a treat.

They’ll touch on how the last 2 years have changed people’s perception of health, what the big idea is and how to understand it, and more!
