Chiropractic Care

Athletes around the world understand the importance of chiropractic.  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.

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.

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.  

Our office provides the following therapies:

  • Heat and Ice
  • Interferential
  • Ultrasound

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.  Dr. Cheryl Silva is a trained Prenatal Chiropractor 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.
