Adjusting the spine is the cornerstone of chiropractic. Multiple techniques are used in order to provide the best service to our patients. Along with the traditional manual adjustments, your chiropractor may use special tables or adjusting instruments for infants, children, and pregnant women.
"Chiropractic care for my child? Why? His back doesn’t hurt."
Parents who often appreciate the importance of checkups for their child’s teeth, hearing, eyes, ears, nose and throat draw a blank when it comes to the spine.
A spinal checkup could be one of the most important of your child’s life! Why? In addition to the stress of childbirth, the constant jumping, falling, running and bumping of a normal childhood often cause vertebral subluxations, with various health consequences if uncorrected.
For over a hundred years chiropractors have observed often dramatic responses from some infants after a chiropractic spinal adjustment. Today we find more parents bringing their children to chiropractors for spinal checkups. With a healthy spinal column, a child’s body can better deal with the sore throats, ear infections, stomachaches, fevers, measles, mumps and the 101 other problems that often make up young life.
Keeping your child’s spine free from vertebral subluxations will help stengthen your child’s natural defenses against disease. This will help you avoid drugs and their side effects. Why not give your child the great advantage of this safer, more natural, non-drug form of health care.
Pregnancy can be a time of joy and anticipation, yet for some the experience is colored by pain, discomfort and illness. This is often because pregnant women undergo many structural and hormonal changes that affect the spine, nerves, joints, ligaments, connective tissue, center of gravity, and stability. The doctor of chiropractic can ensure that the spinal column, pelvis and related structures are balanced, moving easily and free of vertebral subluxations.
Free of vertebral subluxations, the mother-to-be experiences pregnancy at a greater level of comfort, health and vitality, and can better handle the stress of childbirth.
Is chiropractic safe for a pregnant woman and her unborn child?
Absolutely! Chiropractic’s gentle, drug-free approach is especially beneficial during pregnancy.
Can I see other health care providers while under chiropractic care?
Of course. There is no conflict. Many women continue chiropractic care throughout their pregnancy in addition to seeing other health care providers.
How late in pregnancy is it possible to get a spinal adjustment?
Anytime. Women have even received chiropractic care during labor.
Can spinal care help postnatal depression?
According to one journal, “Postpartum depression is a rarity in patients receiving...manipulative therapy."
Do I have to have a problem in pregnancy to see a chiropractor?
Not at all. Periodic spinal checkups during pregnancy should be as common as periodic weigh-ins.
Learning how to use your body properly is an essential part of the chiropractic approach to health. Throughout your chiropractic care, you will be instructed in the proper use of an exercise program, custom-tailored to your individual needs. These exercises become an integral part of getting well and staying well.
Simply stated, "You are what you eat." Often, the difference between regaining health and remaining ill is the patient's eating and drinking habits. During your initial consultation, your doctor will ask specific questions to determine if you require special nutritional advice. It is a critically important part of your chiropractic care.
Massage Therapy is the practice of soft tissue release with physical, functional and in some cases psychological purposes and goals. Massage Therapy is manual therapy involving pressure applied by the hands, fingers, forearms and other parts of the body at different speeds, pressure, focusing and using a variety of strokes and methods.
Massage and Chiropractic Care
Massage therapy is particularly effective when combined with chiropractic care. As the structue of the spine and pelvis alter and straighten so much throughout a course of chiropractic care, the muscles no longer have to compensate as much. When the spine and pelvis are functioning differently is the ideal time to begin with massage therapy as the muscle will adapt easily and the massage effects will last a lot longer.
