Patients of All Ages Benefit from Dr. Ryan’s Chiropractic Care
Pediatric Chiropractor in Tulsa: At Keith G. Ryan Chiropractic PLLC, we see patients of the entire age spectrum from infants and children all the way through to seniors. Chiropractic care is extremely important for infants and young children. When children come into this world, their bodies will be subjected to various kinds of stress. Even at birth, infants can be susceptible to spinal misalignment due to fetal positions in utero, a slow birth or a c-section. A brief pediatric check-up is not designed to detect possible “hidden damage” that a chiropractic exam would discover.
Naturally Ensure a Happy and Healthy Child with Chiropractic Care
The first thing Dr. Ryan will do is to conduct a thorough history of your child’s health and any complaints. This is followed by a complete physical examination of the child’s spine.
When Dr. Ryan performs spinal adjustments for infants and young children, it will involve a gentle fingertip pressure to correct spinal misalignments. This will gently restore mobility to spinal joints. A child’s spine generally responds faster compared to an adult’s spine. The actual number of adjustments will vary depending on many factors such as the length of time the problem has been present. Parents can feel confident about the safety of chiropractic for their child since it is non-invasive and medication free.

Chiropractic Care for Seniors
As the body ages, it becomes increasingly important to stay healthy and active. While muscles and bones may weaken, it’s still possible to remain active while out and about. Many seniors face chronic pain or other chronic issues related to the body wearing down over time. Fortunately, chiropractic care in Tulsa has been shown to have multiple benefits for the elderly, from increased mobility to decreased risk of falls and other injuries.
For seniors who struggle with decreasing mobility, chiropractic adjustments have been show to help restore the deficit. While the results will vary due to the nature of the patient’s individual needs, many seniors find themselves able to do tasks including bending over and playing with the grand-kids or working in the garden, tasks that were otherwise unattainable before. Others seniors who enjoy golf may find an increase in their golf game. These small improvements can lead to a large increase in overall quality of life for all patients.
