Chiropractic and Pregnancy
Awaiting the arrival of your new baby is an exciting time! Though it will be a time of change you and your body go through. An increase in weight during this wonderful time of your life can create spinal misalignment, postural distortions, as well as pelvic imbalance. Many women experience heartburn, back pain, rib pain, headaches, and pubic pain due to the spinal changes that occur during pregnancy. Along with relief from the symptoms listed above, women receiving chiropractic care during pregnancy are able to carry and deliver with more comfort and decreased labor time! Receiving regular chiropractic care during pregnancy can help ensure the expectant mother’s pelvic bones are properly aligned facilitating a quicker, easier delivery process. Chiropractic care can reduce nerve interference which is vital for a healthy development of the baby and mother. This ensures the mother and unborn child receive the best opportunity to have a healthy pregnancy and birth experience. Healthy Mom = Healthy Baby! We are here to answer any questions and help you achieve a healthy birthing experience!
Chiropractic and Pediatric Care
Almost 95% of infants have misalignments after birth. A stressful birth can cause problems to occur down the road, so chiropractic adjustments are a proactive approach to help your child thrive and avoid potential symptoms. Many parents choose to bring their child to a chiropractor because of the stressors of being born, as well as the everyday activity that a young child goes through. Ask us how we can help! The delivery process can be very traumatic for the baby. What is often considered to be a “normal” hospital birth, can lead to many issues down the road in your child’s development. The typical long lever procedures, (removal by hand, vacuum extraction, or forceps) can cause up to 60-80 pounds of excess stress on your baby’s neck. This can be tremendously damaging and can affect the baby’s ability to fully express their health and full potential of life. Children grow at an exceptionally quick rate and they need to be free of any obstacles to their proper development. Children live a very active lifestyle and accidents do tend to happen. Though no external injury may be present, these mishaps can cause misalignments of the spine, which can block the natural flow of life across the nerves to any part of the body. As an old saying goes, “As the twig is bent, so grows the tree.” The distinctive qualification of chiropractors is the detection and correction of vertebral subluxations which allows for your child to live at their body’s potential!
