True Correction vs Temporary Relief
Your body is an amazing, but incredibly complex machine, and like the computer system it is, a single pathway that is out of place can cause an astounding number of problems in the vital functions of your organs, nerves, muscles and even your base cells. This framework and associated pathways start in the brain and travel throughout your spine and nervous system. Without good spinal health, your brain experiences a sub-optimal connection with the rest of your body.
When your spinal bones aren’t aligned properly, this can lead to a variety of health issues. From mobility problems to headaches and nerve pain, a chiropractor knows how to address these problems using natural, hands-on and non-invasive approaches to correcting spinal misalignments and allow your body to once again heal itself as it should.
While many chiropractors focus on relieving pain in the immediate short term, real correction is intended to allow for long-term improvements. Only through true correction can patients live a full, healthy and happy life of optimal bodily function.
Pregnancy and Pediatrics:
Here at Legacy Health Chiropractic we love serving women before, during and after their pregnancy. For women who are looking to become pregnant, chiropractic care can help to promote more regular menstrual cycles and restore proper uterine function. Once conception is achieved, specific adjustments can improve mother's balance, pelvis alignment and flexibility. The Proper alignment of the pelvis is essential for the normal position of the baby and an easier delivery. In addition, mothers who receive chiropractic care during pregnancy report less low back discomfort and relief of pregnancy symptoms such as:
Dr. Hart specializes in The Webster Technique, a chiropractic technique that is used to prevent in-utero constraint and assist the baby in finding the ideal position for birth. Mothers who receive chiropractic care throughout their whole pregnancy report less traumatic births and far easier and shorter deliveries. They also report more consistent contractions, which help the baby move easily through the birth canal.
Stress can occur for both mother and child during labor and delivery. When misalignments in the spine occur in infants, it can result in different symptoms and dysfunction. Utilizing neurologically based chiropractic care, many parents have reported improvement or resolution of their children's symptoms associated with:

Senior Chiropractic Care
Just like any machine, as we age our body is less able to cope with the years of stress. It degenerates, the cartilage between vertebrae breaks down, especially if the spine has been misaligned for a long time, and nervous system dysfunction can result. Regular chiropractic care for the elderly can mitigate some of these problems and lead to a longer and healthier life. True principled chiropractic care for the elderly can improve mobility, strength and coordination, allowing seniors to maintain a sense of healthy independence for years.
Senior chiropractic care is designed to focus on longevity and increasing energy through spinal alignment corrections to allow the nervous system to function at peak performance and the body to heal itself better in turn. Through regular care, seniors in the Lithia Springs area can reduce their dependence on prescription medication, increase their energy and lessen the occurrence of health problems.
Military & Veterans:
The physical, mental and emotional stressors that our troops experience daily, and the residual effects that they continue to experience as veterans is something that is hard for private citizens to understand. Though we have never been through anything similar, at Legacy Health Chiropractic we strive to be there for our military and veterans, and offer them a natural approach to healing.
With opioid addiction on the rise, there have been many studies offering chiropractic care as a natural approach to the symptoms one could be experiencing. It has been proven through research that the symptoms of PTSD are heightened with a musculoskeletal complaint, such as neck pain or low back pain. In a study completed in 2010, 61% of combat veterans reported improvement in their cases. More research needs to be done on the topic of PTSD specifically and chiropractic care. With the research we have now, we know that when interference is removed from the nervous system the brain can communicate with the body optimally, all organ systems can function appropriately, and our hormones balance. There has been a recent increase in research discussing chiropractic care and mental health, which is why we strive to raise awareness for the treatment of these conditions naturally.
