Get adjusted and shine bright with regular chiropractic care!
Ever have one of those days where you just don’t feel as bright as you should? Your diet’s good and you’re getting enough exercise but for some reason you still feel drained and unproductive? Maybe it’s time for a trip to the chiropractor…
Think of your nerve system as electrical wires and your body a 100 watt light bulb connected to it. When the wires are clear and electricity flows freely, your bulb glows to 100 watts. But if power is restricted in the wires, your bulb dims. Chiropractors call it subluxation, or a "state of less light, less energy." And the only thing that can "light you up" again is a specific, loving chiropractic Adjustment. Eating properly and getting enough exercise is important, but you’ll never shine to your full potential if you’re in a state of subluxation… and you can’t afford that. The world needs you beaming at 100 watts. So don’t wait until your light is completely out.
Chiropractic care can help keep the body in healthy alignment during pregnancy.
When a woman becomes pregnant, it can be a very exciting experience in her life. From the time a baby is conceived, a woman’s body undergoes numerous changes. Chiropractic care can help give mothers-to-be the reassurance they need to ensure that their body is in optimal health for when they deliver their baby. Anyone who is pregnant is wise to ask if a treatment is safe during pregnancy. The health and well-being of mother and child are, understandably, of the greatest importance. All chiropractors are trained to treat patients through pregnancy, though some have received additional training specific to prenatal treatment.
This can reduce pain and discomfort, while also helping to keep the body in the best possible condition for natural childbirth. Other benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include promoting overall health, controlling nausea, and reducing labor and delivery pain—and possibly preventing the need for a cesarean delivery. Carrying a child affects the distribution of weight on the body, balance and posture. There are also changes in the pelvic area to facilitate childbirth. Sleeping position may be affected, as may sitting posture. Regular exercise may cease or be modified. Routine actions like picking things up may require a different position or cause struggle. All of these may result in strain and misalignment.
Prenatal chiropractic work focuses on the balance of the pelvis.
This is often done using the Webster Technique. By balancing the pelvis it allows for the unborn child to have the maximum room for movement and growth. A chiropractor can tell if the triangular base of the spine (the sacrum) is tilted, causing a ligament to be pulled in one direction and limiting that side of the uterus. When this goes uncorrected, the baby may stay in a breech position or facing the wrong way, could cause excruciating “back labor.” Reducing the likelihood of these problems also reduces the risk of a cesarean or the need for painkillers.
Infant & Child Care
All children function better with 100% nerve function. When it's functioning at its peak, children remain healthier.
Chiropractic care at an early age substantially improves all developmental functions and creates a healthier stronger immune system. The immune system is controlled by the nervous system. When adjusted, children have less of a tendency to be injured at play or in sports. Chiropractic care for children is safe, gentle, and effective. Common childhood disorders can also sometimes indicate a spinal problem. Persistent earaches, sore throats, colic, headaches, bed-wetting, and growing pains are but some of the more common problems for which parents bring their children to the chiropractor. Spinal adjustments for infants and young children involve very light fingertip adjustments to correct malfunctioning spinal structures. A light spinal adjustment, using no more than two pounds of pressure, is usually sufficient to restore mobility to spinal joints, which have become locked and are causing interference with the normal function of the nervous system.
