Keeping Young Athletes in Peak Condition

As parents, we all want our children to have the best in life. For some, that includes nurturing a love of sports at a young age. However, participating in sports can be demanding, and it takes a toll on both the physical and mental health of young athletes. A full schedule of school, practices, and tournaments can leave little time for rest or downtime, which is why it’s crucial to take proactive measures to protect developing bodies from injuries. That’s where The Wellery comes in. As a sports injury chiropractor, Dr. Chadd offers a unique approach to keeping young athletes in peak condition.

Sports injuries can happen suddenly or over time due to repetitive stress. As developing bodies are more susceptible to injury, it’s essential to address any injuries in a timely manner. With a deep understanding of the mechanics of the body, Dr. Chadd is equipped to address not just stress to the neck and back, but the entire nervous system. This approach is natural, non-invasive, and helps the body heal itself from within.

In addition to chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Chadd is also certified in the Kinesio Tape Method. Kinesio tape is a special type of tape that’s strategically applied to the skin to provide support to injured muscles and adjoining tissue. The tape, along with the strategic application, enables athletes to get back to their sport quicker, safer, and more confidently.

At The Wellery, our goal is to help young athletes stay on top of their game. We understand that injuries can be frustrating and discouraging, which is why we take a holistic approach to healing. Our focus isn’t just on treating symptoms but on identifying and addressing the root cause of the problem. By doing so, we can help young athletes achieve optimal health and performance.

Understanding Chiropractic Care and Its Role in Alleviating Constipation

Did you know that chiropractic care can help with constipation? Despite being known for relieving back pain, chiropractic care is actually a holistic approach to healing the body. Today, we’ll dive deep into how neurological-based chiropractic care can address the root causes of constipation, and how the Wellery can help you better understand the connection between your nervous system and gut health.

Constipation is awful and can occur due to a variety of reasons, such as stress, lack of exercise or fiber intake, not drinking enough water, and certain medications. While dietary and lifestyle changes can help alleviate constipation, sometimes there are deeper underlying issues that need to be addressed.

A neurological-based chiropractor can detect areas of stress in the neuromusculoskeletal system that may be disrupting the brain-gut communication. For example, the lower back and sacrum are common areas that experience nervous system interference when dealing with constipation. The goal of a chiropractic adjustment is to remove interference so that the brain and gut can properly coordinate gastrointestinal motility.

At the Wellery, we use thermal scanning technology to identify the source and quantity of neurological interference in the body. From the scans, we determine where to provide gentle chiropractic adjustments to improve the connection between the brain and gut. 

In addition to chiropractic adjustments, we also provide specific at-home stretches and exercises to aid in the unwinding of tension in the body that often accompanies constipation. These stretches and exercises help maintain proper circulation and muscle movement, which can help keep your digestive tract functioning properly.

It’s important to note that chiropractic care is not a direct remedy for constipation. However, it can play a critical role in addressing the root causes of constipation. By optimizing the nervous system’s connection between the brain and gut, chiropractic care can help improve gastrointestinal motility and alleviate constipation.

The Importance of Tongue-Tie Care at The Wellery

Tongue and lip ties are common issues for infants that can cause significant problems with their oral function and overall health. For many parents, finding a solution for their child’s tongue or lip tie can be a frustrating and confusing process. But, there is hope!  At The Wellery, we specialize in tongue-tie chiropractic care, which involves removing nervous system stress and tension so that oral function can be properly assessed. In this blog, we will explain the importance of tongue-tie chiropractic care, and how we can empower parents to help their child. 

At The Wellery, we have cared for many infants and children with oral ties, and we know that all oral restrictions are not created equal. To help us assess your child’s needs, we perform neurological scans to determine where the nervous system has interference, tension, and stress. Once we get a bigger picture of your child’s nervous system, we can create a customized care plan that fits their needs.

Once we have determined the specific needs of the child, we work with other healthcare providers to determine if or when a tongue or lip tie release is necessary. We understand the importance of proper oral function and believe that it should be properly determined before any release is performed. 

We believe it’s essential to equip parents with the knowledge and tools to care for their child, so we encourage key home care exercises to aid in better outcomes for their child. Our goal is to help remove nervous system stress and myofascial tension so that an infant can properly latch and achieve successful feeding as well as breathing. This is key to the well-being of the infant, as proper feeding and breathing are crucial to their growth, development, and overall health. 

Our team is dedicated to providing exceptional care so that your infant can properly function, grow, and thrive. By working with parents and other healthcare providers, we help children overcome stress and tension associated with oral ties in order to achieve optimal health.
