Many women experience discomfort during their pregnancy. That is the understatement of the century. Chiropractic is a safe and effective way to help alleviate pain and discomfort pre-prenancy, during pregnancy and postpartum.
Pregnancy is not only giving birth, it is a marathon than no-one can truly prepare you for. What we try to do with chiropractic is help your body better support and align for what is to come, the months leading up to birth and during the labour process. We do this by hands on manipulative therapy, movement therapy and exercises, nutritional advice and overall general support.
If you are thinking of getting pregnant or are currently pregnant but not having any issues getting checked regularly is still a great idea. You do not need pain or discomfort to have an issue somewhere and the sooner it can be addressed the sooner you can optimize your body to get ready for pregnancy and birth/postpartum.
Yes, we adjust children!
No age is too young for a spinal check-up and development screen.
Within minutes or days postpartum, a baby can be assessed and treated safely and effectively. A child's spine is one of the keys to proper health and development. Ensuring proper structure and function as soon as possible could potentially decrease any compensations baby may start to develop. Chiropractic care for babies are very gentle and effective way to provide support to the nervous system and restore function to the spine. Maybe that fussy baby is trying to tell you they are in discomfort, they just can't talk yet.... they are saying take me to the chiropractor please.
Kids of all ages should regularly see a chiropractor. How many falls, bumps, bruises do kids get? Lots!!! Why not ensure from time to time that things are moving correctly and possibly correct a problem before it arises and it takes much longer to correct. That sprained ankle, get it looked at. When the older sibling knocked them off the couch onto their head... yup we will look at that too.
