Kids Need Chiropractic Too!

More parents are discovering the many benefits associated with chiropractic care throughout childhood.  Regular chiropractic check-ups are part of proper spinal hygiene and better health. 

Why is chiropractic important for my child?    
Chiropractic care benefits children by correcting the spinal alignment to improve their overall health. When vertebral joints are misaligned during birth or from a blow or fall, muscle tissue and nerves may also be affected. Spinal adjustment frees joints, restores motion and relieves nerve pressure, which may be the cause of additional ailments.  Spinal manipulation for children as young as newborn babies is an alternative treatment for the discomfort of colic and other digestive disorders as well.

Chiropractic care may be able to help with:
  • Allergies
  • Acid Reflux
  • Asthma
  • Back Pain
  • Colic
  • Ear Injections
  • Headaches
  • Neck Pain
  • Scoliosis

Chiropractic Care and Pregnancy

During pregnancy, there are many physiological and hormonal changes that occur in preparation for creating an environment for a developing baby.  A protruding abdomen, increased low back curvature, and postural adaptations often result in misaligned spine or joints.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy?
  •  Reducing the time and/or labor of delivery
  •  Relieving back, neck and/or joint pain
  • Controlling symptoms of nausea
  • Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
  •  Preventing a potential cesarean section

What about chiropractic & breech deliveries?

When the pelvis is misaligned it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby, called intrauterine constraint.  A misaligned pelvis makes it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delviery.
The Webster Technique, having an 83% success rate, is a specific adjustment that enables chiropractors to establish balance in the pelvis and reduce undue stress to the uterus and supporting ligaments.  This balanced state in the pelvis makes it easier for a breech baby to turn naturally.  Optimal baby positioning at the time of birth also eliminates the potential for difficult labor and therefore results in easier and safer deliveries for both the mother and baby.
