A Brief Introduction.

Chiropractors are healthcare providers who primarily perform skilled manipulations (adjustments) to the spine and/or extremities. Their goal is to correct or improve alignment, reduce pain, and support the body’s natural ability to heal itself. In addition to adjustments, Chiropractic care may also involve other treatments such as heat and ice, electrical stimulation, relaxation techniques, rehabilitative and general exercise, counseling about diet and other lifestyle factors, and dietary supplement recommendations.

Energy Drinks Equal Unhealthy Behaviors in Adolescents.

Researchers at the University of Minnesota and Duke University have found an association between the consumption of sports and energy drinks and higher consumption of sugary drinks and smoking. Healthcare professionals are concerned about this growing cluster of unhealthy behaviors among adolescents and believe that a push for healthy hydration habits is needed. The American Academy of Pediatrics states that energy drinks should not be consumed, as they offer no health benefits and over-stimulate the nervous system.

Adjustments Resolve Breastfeeding Problems.

A mother brought her four-week-old baby in for a chiropractic consultation regarding the baby’s inability to effectively latch onto her left breast when trying to breastfeed. Following an assessment, the infant received gentle adjustments to the neck and jaw to reduce muscle tightness and improve range of motion. The baby was then able to breastfeed on the left breast without issues. Further research is warranted to fully understand the implications of birth trauma and impaired function or dysfunction in breastfeeding.
