Optimize neurological function for health and healing!
Chiropractic care is not just for pain. Alignment of the musculoskeletal system supports nervous system health; a key component in the body's ability to heal. Regular adjustments also help you achieve optimal function of the various systems in the body, from digestive and respiratory, to immune and reproductive. Chiropractic care is for all ages and stages of life!
Are chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy good for mom and safe for baby?
YES and YES! We love working with expecting mothers to decrease labor time and make delivery safer, faster, and easier on both mom and baby. How? We use the Webster Technique, which is a specific chiropractic adjustment that balances the pelvic muscles, ligaments, and bone structures. The Webster Technique allows baby to move without restriction in-utero, and get into the best possible position for birth.
My baby JUST arrived! Why would they need a chiropractic adjustment?
Because developing in a confined space, being born, growing, and adjusting to life outside of the womb can be a lot for a little nervous system! Proper alignment helps calm the nerves and in turn, calms the cry of colic, promotes sleep, reduces reflux, enhances digestion and bowel movements, boosts immune system function, and improves neurological development.
Chiropractic care is proven to be safe for both mother and unborn children. Having your nervous system checked by a chiropractic physician helps to ensure that your pelvis is moving correctly to allow optimum room for your baby to grow and develop up to time of delivery. As your body changes, we modify the techniques to accommodate your growing belly.
What are the benefits of regular chiropractic adjustments for my child?
There are many! As your child grows, chiropractic adjustments can help improve their coordination, attention, digestion, and immune function. One of our favorite reasons for regular chiropractic care for kids is strengthening their immune system. Since their immune system is controlled and regulated by their nervous system, chiropractic adjustments can help boost their immune response and keep them healthy!
"It is easier to grow healthy children than to repair broken adults."
