Chiropractic is a branch of modern medicine that focuses primarily on the relationship between the bones, nervous system, and muscles of the body. The Chiropractic science, art, and philosophy believes that the body is a self-healing organism controlled and regulated by our nervous systems and that proper function of the nervous system is vital to overall health and wellness. Doctors of Chiropractic can assess the health of the nervous system in many different ways, some of which may be familiar to you, others may be new. You may be asked questions about falls and injuries, which you may not have considered important. You will notice that the Chiropractor is very interested in every detail of your condition and will always take time to give complete attention to your problems. Once the problem has been identified, the doctor will begin a thorough exam of the problem area, paying special attention to the alignment and function of the spine, as well as look for other contributors to the problem.
Getting adjusted regularly has been proven to slow degenerative processes, such as Rheumatoid, Osteoarthritis and more. As we age our bodies go through a lot of hormonal and physical changes, many of which can benefit from spinal manipulation. And of course we accept Medicare and Medicaid patients!
Pregnancy and chiropractic go hand in hand with each other. Chiropractic care during pregnancy has consistently shown positive results with low back discomfort, pelvic pain, as well as decreased pain and complications during the delivery process. Dr. Ludwig also uses a simple table modification to accommodate pregnant bellies without the increased discomfort of lying on a flat table.
The birthing process can be very traumatic on the spine of a new born. Using a very light and gentle touch, Dr. Ludwig is able to assess and correct the tiny subluxations that the child is unable to communicate to the parents. Chiropractic care on infants has been shown through clinical case studies and randomized trials to improve the symptoms infantile colic (crying of more than 3 hours a day, more than 3 days a week, for more than 3 weeks).
