Chiropractic Care For Kids
A recent study showed that 80% of infants have some sort of spinal misalignment (subluxation) from the birth process. During the average birth, a doctor uses 60-90 lbs of pressure to pull the baby out by the neck. As a result, subluxations occur and place stress onto the baby’s master control system, the nervous system. If left uncorrected, these subluxations may lead to a number of issues such as colic, difficulty with breastfeeding, constipation, ear infections, reflux, baby sleep problems, or a weakened immune system.
Chiropractic care ensures that a child’s spine is properly aligned so that his or her body is functioning properly. For this reason, we encourage new parents to have their newborn’s spine checked as soon as possible after birth. Our goal is to provide the best quality chiropractic care to your little one(s) so they can grow up happy, healthy, and live life to the fullest!
Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Hormonal and gravitational changes during pregnancy can create structural misalignments in the spine that may lead to unwanted symptoms for mom, interfere with the positioning of baby, and decrease the nerve supply going to the growing child.
The nervous system controls and coordinates every function in the body, including the development of the growing baby. When structural misalignments (subluxations) occur, the efficiency of the nervous system decreases. For instance, if a vertebrae in the spine misaligns and places pressure onto the nerve going into the uterus, the baby will not receive the proper nerve flow to grow and develop optimally. In order to have the healthiest pregnancy possible, the master control system needs to be working at 100%.
Thousands of women use chiropractic care during their pregnancy to improve their health and birth experience. Research shows that many women who are under chiropractic care benefit from shorter labors, less pain, less interventions, and a better overall birth experience.
Our goal is to ensure proper spinal alignment so that mom and baby are able to function properly, and have the best pregnancy, delivery, and birth possible!
