The Benefits of Chiropractic Care at Arizona Life Chiropractic Center
Some people might be surprised to hear about babies getting chiropractic adjustments. Understanding how chiropractic care improves over-all health and how safe it is will help to resolve any concerns.
When Dr. Cathcart was just starting chiropractic school, he took the advice of a fellow student who advised him to get his two month old baby adjusted. His baby had not once ridden in his car seat without crying and had not slept for more than two hours at a time. Reluctantly, but in desperation, he handed his baby to the chiropractor and watched as his child was examined. This doctor said he wasn't surprised that his baby wasn't happy in his car seat or lying flat because his hips and neck were in serious need of adjusting. The popping sounds and crying concerned Dr. Cathcart, but his baby didn't cry when he placed him in the car seat! By the time he drove 2 short blocks to his home, his baby was fast asleep and slept for 5 hours! This was the first of many experiences that helped Dr. Cathcart to be certain that chiropractic care is just as beneficial for babies and children as for adults.
Now after 25 years of practice, Dr. Cathcart has come to understand the crucial role that the spine and nervous system play in optimal health. It is actually very simple. The nervous system controls and coordinates every function of the body. The chiropractic adjustment insures that there is no interference to this process.  This is why the following conditions respond so well to chiropractic adjustments: infant colic, ear infections, sleep disturbances, digestive issues, asthma, allergies, and infertility, to name a few. 
Another focus in Dr. Cathcart's practice is posture, as posture is the window to the spine. He has learned that postural stress decreases the healthy function of the spine and nervous system and leads to premature arthritis and degenerated discs in the spine. Many postural issues can be corrected with adjustments and simple exercises recommended by the doctor.
Corrective care has been a part of Dr. Cathcart's practice from day one. Auto accidents have a monumental impact on the spine and nervous system. Not getting chiropractic care after an accident will result in further issues. Dr. Cathcart has assisted in the recovery of over a thousand patients' spinal injuries resulting from auto accidents.
Some injuries might seem impossible to correct, like a bulging disc. One of the leading causes of chronic back pain is the disc. Dr. Cathcart's office offers spinal decompression which successfully rehabilitates bulging discs. Many have been happily surprised with the results!
