Benefits of Chiropractic Care at Jeranek Family Chiropractic in Kenosha

Most people are already familiar with the pain management benefits of chiropractic care. However, chiropractic care is much more than just relief from the occasional back pain. Chiropractic care can improve overall health and wellness and address a variety of other acute and chronic health conditions. 

At Jeranek Family Chiropractic in Kenosha, our patients recognize that chiropractic care is an important aspect of a well-balanced and healthy lifestyle. Our Kenosha chiropractor, Dr. Jeranek, brings over 24 years of chiropractic experience and provides individualized care to benefit patients of all ages.

Chiropractic Care for Acute Pain and Injuries

Injury rehabilitation is one of the top reasons people seek out chiropractic care. Patients experiencing pain from auto accident injuries, sports injuries, and slip-and-falls often suffer from subluxations, or misalignments in the spine caused by trauma from their accident. Manual chiropractic adjustments help to realign the spine and restore proper nerve function.

Athletes and parents with young athletes choose chiropractic care not only to heal from sports injuries, but to prevent future injuries from occurring. Athletes with old injuries often feel pain years after an injury has “healed” and need chiropractic care to address chronic back, knee, shoulder, and arm pain stemming from old injuries. Chiropractic care helps ensure that injuries heal correctly the first time around and regular adjustments maintain the body’s flexibility to prevent future injuries from occurring. 

Chiropractic Care for Chronic Conditions

Chiropractic treatment is also effective for addressing chronic pain from conditions like sciatica, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and degenerative disc disease. Chiropractic adjustments address joint tension and improve nerve function to reduce chronic pain. Manual adjustments offer non-invasive treatment to decrease inflammation that causes the pain. Our chiropractor in Kenosha also offers complementary physiotherapy treatments like corrective exercises, spinal traction, and electrical muscle stimulation to help patients better manage their chronic pain symptoms.

Chiropractic care has also been proven to treat several chronic childhood ailments. Pediatric chiropractic is used to address childhood conditions like chronic ear infections, relieve symptoms of growing pains, reduce ADD and ADHD symptoms, and strengthen the immune system. Scoliosis is often diagnosed when children are young and regular pediatric chiropractic care can realign the spine to ensure that the condition does not worsen or develop into chronic back pain in adulthood. Dr. Jeranek is an experienced Kenosha family chiropractor, who can provide safe and gentle care to children as young as infants.

Drug-Free Appeal of Chiropractic Care

Patients prefer chiropractic not just to address their pain symptoms, but to target pain at its source. While painkillers can provide temporary relief, chiropractic care works to improve the underlying causes of pain. Chiropractic offers drug-free, non-invasive treatment methods for patients who prefer a holistic approach to healing. 

Chiropractic care for pregnant women is becoming increasingly popular. Pregnant women often experience new pains, like sciatica, a condition caused by additional pressure on the sciatic nerve. Chiropractic care helps to reduce compression on the spine during pregnancy and even contribute to lower back and pelvic alignments for an easier childbirth. Many soon-to-be mothers prefer the gentle and safe methods of chiropractic care over reliance on over the counter painkillers.

Likewise, parents prefer the natural, drug-free method of chiropractic care when choosing treatment options for their children. Chronic ear infections in children are often treated with antibiotics, but chiropractic care can reduce fluid accumulation that causes infections without the reliance on drugs. Similarly, parents of children with ADD and ADHD often look for holistic solutions to reduce their children’s hyperactivity and other symptoms. Several studies have shown a correlation between chiropractic care and reduced ADD/ ADHD symptoms. 

Chiropractic Care for Overall Wellness

Aside from its many pain-relief benefits, chiropractic care can also improve overall health. Spinal adjustments have been proven to boost the body’s immune system. Subluxations or spinal misalignments can impinge nerve pathways that are crucial to immune function. Manual adjustments realign the spine to improve nerve function and even contribute to increased white blood cell counts.

Chiropractic adjustments can also relieve tension and reduce stress. Misalignments in the spine affect the body’s nervous system and dysfunction can affect the nerve pathways responsible for mood and behavior. Manual adjustments improve blood-flow and spinal irritation and can be physically therapeutic. Dr. Jeranek can also offer lifestyle advice, like nutritional counseling, that can improve overall health and wellness.

  • "My problems started two years ago and I couldn’t walk, I was stuck on a walker, almost bent in half. Dr. Jeranek has helped me very much. I feel better, I walk better, straighter, and without a walker, it’s a night and day difference. I would highly recommend seeing her."
    Myrna J. (female 82)
  • "I had a sore lower back for about a year and sore knees for about 4-5 years before I started seeing Dr. Janet Jeranek. Dr. Jeranek’s rehabilitative Chiropractic care has significantly improved my back pain and both my knees have shown very little pain lately. I am very happy that I can do all of my normal activities with more flexibility with very little pain."

  • "I am a semi truck driver and the seat bounces me around. The MRI showed that I messed up my discs in my lower back, I have been suffering from lower back pain for years. I started noticing numbness, tingling, and weakness in my left leg a few weeks ago. So I called Dr. Jeranek and she got me in right away. Now I am feeling great with not leg tingling, weakness, or numbness. Give her a try, you will be glad you did!"
