Chiropractic and Pregnancy

Chiropractic and Pregnancy

Many changes occur to the body during pregnancy including: protruding abdomen, increased back curve, pelvic changes, postural adaptations, etc. There are four stages (pregnancy, labor, following delivery, pediatric care) in which having an optimally working nervous system can help both mother and child. This can be achieved through chiropractic care.

Pregnancy
Changes such as protruding abdomen and increased back curve can cause alterations in spinal alignment and nerve function. Regular chiropractic visits will reduce and minimize the pain associated with the alterations of the body.

Labor
If you were to try to put a circle through an oval you would undoubtedly have trouble doing so, just as a baby’s head would have increased difficulty fitting through an altered pelvis. Chiropractic allows proper spinal and pelvis alignment in order to improve your labor and delivery experience.

Following Delivery
Even natural births can stress a baby’s spine. Breastfeeding problems can arise if the baby has a subluxation and is unable to comfortably turn its head to one side. Relax, and come see us.  We use a special approach to make our adjustments safe and comfortable.

Pediatric Care
The most common conditions that we treat are colic, ear infections, torticollis, constipation or diarrhea and nursing difficulty.

Before, during and after pregnancy you can avoid the need for medication, reduce low back pain and make carrying a baby a more pleasing experience. We can help! Come see us.

Summer 2016 has come to a close, can you believe another summer is in the books? Now that summer is over it is time to get back into the swing of things.

Most of us are gearing up for school, busy schedules, homework, after school activities and the hectic pace of the non-stop lifestyles that come along with school.

Everything from contact sports, playing an instrument, sitting, studying, paying attention in class, carrying a backpack affects the spine and nervous system.  

Keeping your child’s spine and nervous system aligned and balanced is crucial for them to be able to enjoy a healthy and successful year. Posture and spinal alignment during childhood determines the function and health as an adult so it is important to ensure that they have a healthy spine while they are young.

Chiropractic care can keep your child’s spine and nervous system healthy and ensure the best school year yet. Get them scheduled for an appointment today!

Here’s to a healthy school year!
