Millions of Americans use chiropractic as part of their routine health care. Chiropractic Care aids in correcting postural imbalances and structural misalignments that accumulate over time. Chiropractic adjustments restore alignment and mobility to the vertebrae as well as other joints of the body. This allows muscles surrounding the joint to relax and heal as well as relieving nerve interference which can improve overall health and wellness.

A child's brain and nervous system control every function in their body. As a parent, you want to ensure that your child's nervous system is developing and functioning properly. Many parents rely on Pediatric Chiropractic Care to maintain the health of their children. From birth and throughout the rough and tumble period of early childhood, children are exposed to compression, twisting, and jarring that causes minor spinal problems called subluxations. Simple acts such as the frequent falls experienced by toddlers learning to walk, sudden falls while riding a bicycle, or simply playing sports may cause mild traumatic injuries to the spine.
Subluxations of the spine do not necessarily cause discomfort to your child and there may be minimal external evidence that a subluxation exists. However, vague symptoms such as restricted head movement, interrupted sleep, nursing or feeding difficulties, and even some other common ailments such as persistent earaches, acid reflux, colic, bedwetting, or headaches can also indicate spinal problems.
Drs. Joe and Cheryl Silva are Pediatric Chiropractors, members of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, and have been specially trained in the safe and gentle adjusting of infants and children. Silva Chiropractic is equipped with a special tiger adjusting table so that we may better provide chiropractic for children and infants.
Chiropractic can make your pregnancy more comfortable. Studies show that women are able to carry and deliver babies with more comfort when receiving chiropractic care during pregnancy. Back pain, which is a common symptom in pregnancy, may indicate the presence of spinal misalignments. Correcting these misalignments can ensure that both mother-to-be and the unborn child have the best opportunity to have a healthy pregnancy and birth. Drs. Joe and Cheryl Silva are trained Prenatal Chiropractors and certified in the Webster Technique for adjusting pregnant women. Silva Chiropractic is also equipped with a special adjusting table that allows room for the pregnant belly.
The Webster Technique Defined:
Sacral misalignment causes the tightening and torsion of specific pelvic muscles and ligaments. The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that reduces interference to the nervous system and facilitates biomechanical balance in the pelvic structures, muscles, and ligaments.

Most collegiate, professional, and world-class athletes use chiropractic to keep them in the game and help them reach their maximum potential. Chiropractic is used to treat sports injuries, but also improves body alignment, biomechanics, and coordination. Good nutrition, chiropractic, and hard work are the backbone of excellence in sports.
If you are a competitive athlete, you may already be aware of the importance your diet plays on your performance. We can help you improve your eating habits to boost your performance. Our Mansfield Chiropractor specialists can finely tune the body to perform at its best.
It's amazing what a few strands of hair can tell about your health. Hair is like the proverbial "canary in the coal mine" since it reflects the mineral content of the body's tissues. If a mineral deficiency or abundance is present in the hair, then more than likely there is a mineral deficiency or abundance in the body. For example, if your hair shows elevated levels of calcium that are two or three times normal, then the calcium level in your body may be elevated as well. This could mean you are at greater risk for arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries from calcium plaques). On the flip side, if analysis of your hair reveals that your calcium level is low, you could be susceptible to getting osteoporosis (demineralization of bone) and be more prone to bone fractures, dental disease, and muscle cramps.
Mineral imbalances, as can be revealed by Hair Analysis, commonly lead to metabolic dysfunctions well before symptoms appear. That's why it's good to know exactly what minerals your body needs more of and which ones it doesn't. A simple hair analysis can answer these questions definitively.
Other Conditions Which May Result From or be Aggravated by a Mineral Imbalance are:
Minerals are the "sparkplugs" of life. Nearly every enzymatic reaction in the body relies on minerals. A hair trace mineral analysis is not only preventative but is a useful screening tool for many common ailments. Anyone who is ill or suffering one of the above, or similar, issues should consider a hair analysis to make sure everything in their body is in balance. Ask us about getting this test. It is very easy and painless and can reveal a lot about what is going on in the body.
