Children are our most precious hope and sacred responsibility. We’ve talked about how chiropractic care and a clear nervous system can help you get your family started. However, the benefits of a specific, scientific adjustment are just getting started with conception.
Prenatal chiropractic care is a wonderful option to make a mother more comfortable and give her better health through pregnancy and delivery. Our gentle adjustments are helpful in every trimester. In our office, we use a pillow that accommodates growing bellies, so pregnant mothers can be at ease during their adjustment.
Adjustments make a mom more relaxed throughout the pregnancy and ease many discomforts. We frequently have moms who report reduced sciatica, improved mobility, less hip and lower back pain.
We use the Webster technique that focuses on the sacrum and ligaments of the pelvis. It essentially untorques the pelvis. This is especially good for breech babies, as it allows more space for the baby to move into the best position.
Regular chiropractic care has been shown to reduce the length of labor by making the process of childbirth easier, reducing the risk of traumas. It does this by optimizing the pelvis and the body’s communication between body and brain.
Pediatric Chiropractic Care
Children’s nervous systems are the foundation for their health and growth because it allows them to send strong signals from the brain to the body and vice versa. This means kids that thrive and grow because their bodies innately know how to be healthy.
However, life happens to our kids. After the rigors and stresses of birth, newborns should be evaluated by pediatric chiropractors and adjusted with gentle care. The best approach is to start chiropractic care when they are young and strong.
The physical, emotional and chemical stresses and traumas of childhood mean it gets harder for the body to adapt from falls during sports, school stress or poor nutrition. The body gets stuck in a stressed mode and the spine becomes subluxated.
Chiropractic care has been shown to reduce the effects of colic, digestive discomfort, sickness, sleep disorders, behavioral problems, headaches, ear infections, and many other common symptoms and conditions. This includes neurological issues, as chiropractic helps to reconnect the brain and body’s communication.
Dr. Tony Ebel DC, has done exciting work into the neurology behind why kids struggle with ADHD, sensory processing disorders and sensitivities, autism and other special needs.
His data, collected from thousands of neurological scans and exams, shows that these children’s “fight-or-flight” part of their nervous system is stuck. It is basically continually on alert, no matter the situation. Read more in this about the cause and neurology of ADHD.
