It is well known that families heal better together. Chiropractic is an effective method of positively affecting nervous system function and health, without the need for invasive procedures or medications. Through correct alignment of the spine and the freedom it gives the nervous system, every member of the family can achieve optimal health. Chiropractic is safe and effective for all age groups, from infants to seniors.
Pregnancy can be one of the greatest joys in life, yet for some it can be difficult to achieve. A nervous system that isn’t functioning optimally can cause multiple issues relating to fertility. With the appropriate alignment of the spine, the nervous system can return to its normal function, thus giving the body a better chance for conception.
Preconception chiropractic care allows for a healthier body with greater uterine function and regular menstruation. By ensuring the body is better prepared to receive a baby, the chances of conception and a healthy pregnancy are greatly increased. After conception, consistent chiropractic care during the course of the pregnancy may increase the mother’s balance, alignment, and flexibility, allowing for a more pleasant experience carrying the baby in the womb. Consistent chiropractic care may also help alleviate many of the symptoms of pregnancy, such as morning sickness, aches, pains, and swelling.
During labor and delivery, mothers who have received consistent chiropractic care have said the birthing process was far less traumatic. They experienced well-timed contractions with a much easier and shorter delivery. Postnatal chiropractic care can help realign any structural damage that occurred during the birthing process.
The birthing process is frequently the first cause of stress in the newborn’s delicate spine. Spinal cord and brainstem trauma often occur during the process of birth leading to a variety of secondary conditions, including difficulty breastfeeding, colic, asthma, digestive issues, and constipation. A gentle correction of any misalignment of the spine allows your newborn to grow up happy and healthy.
During their growing years, children repeatedly put their spine through a great deal of stress. Playtime activities, youth athletics, bad posture, and heavy backpacks oftentimes put their spine out of alignment, negatively affecting the function of their nervous system. Regular chiropractic care will help keep a child’s spine in ideal alignment, allowing for improved growth and better overall development. Through excellent spinal health and optimal nervous system function, children may experience improved sleep, fewer behavioral problems, and a stronger immune system.
