According to statistics released by the Canadian Chiropractic Association, 15% of the population or over 4 million Canadians visit a chiropractor every year. In fact, Consumer Reports recently rated Chiropractic medicine as the number one solution for lower back pain over medical care, pharmaceuticals, acupuncture and physical therapy. According to Dr. James Rice, a chiropractor with Rice Family Chiropractic (http://www.ricechiropractic.ca), a number of patients seeking chiropractic care for low back pain find relief faster and the results last longer over time than other more traditional methods.
However according to Dr. Rice, chiropractic care is not just for the back and most certainly not just for adults. Says Dr. Rice, “We are passionate about good health and provide care for the whole family from infancy through adulthood. Our focus here is education, to teach people what exactly is going on with their bodies, how that works and what treatment we suggest. While certainly we treat our fair share of patients who suffer from back and neck pain injuries, we’re just as likely to treat those who have problems with loss of sleep, arthritis, headaches and fatigue.”
Dr Rice goes on to say children are also some of their frequent patients. “Your entire family can benefit from chiropractic, including and especially, your children. Significant spinal trauma may occur during the birthing process. It is the spinal nerves that control every organ and cell in our children’s bodies and helps form the people that they will grow up to be. It is important to maintain a child’s spinal hygiene just as you would their teeth, as growing and running, learning and falling can interfere with your child expressing their optimal health and peak performance. Chiropractic care is the best way for a child to be free of subluxations. All children deserve to have their nervous systems checked by a Chiropractor.”
Dr. Rice and his partner and wife Dr. Erin Rice run the practice together and promote total care for the whole family, saying, “We have two kids ourselves and we started chiropractic care right from the beginning, the first day that they were born. We did spinal analysis and adjusted them right away. We encourage our patients to bring their children with them to their chiropractic appointments.”
Dr. Rice continues, summing up their philosophy on chiropractic care in a nutshell. “We take a holistic approach to our patient’s health and provide services like prescription orthotics and lifestyle advice including nutrition and exercise, all focused on achieving optimum well being. It’s our goal to help make people feel better and have a more stress free life.”
