PREGNANCY AND PEDIATRICS

Chiropractic care is important for people of all ages, shapes, and sizes because it allows the nervous system to function properly. The spine is the portal for the brain to communicate with the entire body through the nervous system, and with the proper alignment of the spine comes proper healing and functioning of the body.

 

This is incredibly important during pregnancy, as the body is going through physical, chemical, and emotional changes each and every day.  Postural, hormonal, and neurological changes affect mom and baby alike.  When the nervous system can function at one hundred percent, it allows for the best development and growth of baby. 

 

The proper alignment of the pelvis is essential for the normal position of the baby and an easier delivery. Any misalignment of the pelvis can create torsion in the uterus, leading to in-utero constraint, which prevents the baby from moving freely. If the baby can’t get into the ideal position, labor is more difficult and less likely to result in a natural delivery. The Webster technique is a specialized chiropractic technique used to prevent in-utero constraint and assist the baby in finding the ideal position for birth. This technique also helps many women to improve their health and birthing experience by benefitting from shorter labor, less pain, fewer interventions, and increased satisfaction with their birthing experience.

 

Infancy and childhood are two of the most important times to have the spine checked for nerve interference. 92-96 percent of neurological development takes place before age three, and nearly everyone experiences their first spinal misalignment from the trauma of birth.  Along with making sure the nervous system is healthy during the muscular changes associated with growing and playing, chiropractic is also great for helping children with:
