What Is a Family Chiropractor?
A family chiropractor is a chiropractor who performs adjustments on people of all ages. This includes babies, children, teenagers, adults, and senior patients with a wide range of health needs. We also see many healthy and active people who utilize chiropractic care as a means of natural healthcare, as part of a wellness lifestyle.
Family chiropractors understand the unique mechanisms that affect the body at every age and stage of development. They work with each patient to address specific needs or challenges and help them feel their best!
A family chiropractor sets goals for each patient based on their age and health needs. For children, we may focus on aligning the neck and spine to ensure they develop strong, healthy bodies. In teens and adults, we can perform posture-correcting manipulations that help ease tension and muscle strain that can lead to symptoms like aches, pains, and headaches.
Among our senior patients, services may focus on alleviating symptoms from common conditions, such as arthritis and sciatica, while helping them retain mobility and a good range of motion.
Here at Express Life Chiropractic, we want to make you feel excited about moving through life! That means customizing care to help suit your needs,

When You Should See a Chiropractor
We encourage you to contact us if you experience any discomfort in your body. This could be the result of an injury, physically demanding or sedentary desk job, underlying health condition, or anything else.
Rather than diagnose medical conditions, chiropractors want to find the root cause of the problem to help you find relief from symptoms without the need for surgery or medication. Imagine a fire alarm going off in your house. Symptoms and pain in your body are a lot like the fire alarm. We want to put out the fire, not just take the batteries out of the fire alarm.
We help many patients who have been relying on prescription pain medications for years find natural relief through chiropractic adjustments. Symptoms like muscle aches, joint pain, digestive problems, headaches, numbness, and tingling are highly treatable with personalized adjustments from an experienced chiropractor.
Children’s Chiropractic Care
One of the most common questions we receive is, “Is chiropractic adjustment safe for kids?” And the answer is absolutely! We are trained, experienced professionals who understand how to tailor our services to suit the unique needs of our youngest patients.
We offer pediatric chiropractic care for babies, toddlers, school-aged children, and teenagers. Careful adjustments can help growing bones develop properly and support proper alignment throughout adulthood; this can also help prevent common issues older patients experience, such as chronic neck and back pain.
Many children who participate in sports, dance, and other active extracurricular activities can also benefit from chiropractic adjustments to help support their posture and safety. If they are ever injured practicing a sport or doing an activity they love, our care can help speed up recovery while minimizing discomfort.
What Age Should a Child See a Chiropractor?
Knowing that the birthing process can be a traumatic event for most babies, we see infants as early as a day old. We offer safe, non-invasive pediatric chiropractic care that is beneficial even for infants. If your child has any problems with their posture, such as uneven shoulders or slouching, scoliosis or they exhibit problems such as chronic ear infections, immune system problems, constipation colic, allergies, bed wetting, problems eating or sleeping, ADHD, asthma, growing pains, acid reflux, or issues crawling or standing, that’s definitely a sign to get them adjusted.
Senior Chiropractic Care
For adults 65+, chiropractic care can be wonderfully beneficial as they look for ways to navigate symptoms of disease common among this age demographic. We see senior patients who are extremely active and in terrific shape as well as those who are seeking relief from symptoms caused by chronic health conditions.
We focus on functionality, movement, and strength through spinal and neck adjustments that help reduce inflammation, pain, and discomfort.
Our senior patients love chiropractic care because it is a non-invasive, painless approach to managing the aches, pains, and health changes many experience as they grow older. We’re here to help make your golden years the best ones yet!
Conditions We Can Help Care for in Elderly Patients
By 2030, one in five U.S. adults will be 65 years old or older. This means that there is an increased need for compassionate, personalized care that respects this unique stage of life.
Adults in their golden years are more likely to experience chronic pain from a number of conditions, but we can help. Our gentle chiropractic adjustments take your entire medical history into account to find relief from conditions such as:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Neck, shoulder, knee, or back pain
- Joint stiffness and limited mobility
- Chronic migraines or headaches
- Sleep troubles
- Digestive problems
Getting older shouldn’t mean feeling less comfortable in your body. From 60-80+, we care for senior patients of all ages who need additional help feeling more like themselves. It’s time to feel good moving again!
