What we do
Care for infants
Chiropractic care for infants, babies, and children is different than chiropractic care for adults. It is a gentle and effective way of helping their brain and body to grow and develop throughout childhood.
The nervous system develops rapidly during the first couple of years of life. Milestones are nature's way of telling us the brain is developing as scheduled. Missing or weak milestones can indicate a need for the brain to be balanced and reconnected.
It is easier to grow healthy children than to fix broken adults. Which is why I recommended chiropractic care for all infants and children, to assist in making growing up a smooth transition.
Care for children
The nervous system develops rapidly during the first couple of years of life.
Milestones are nature's way of telling us the brain is developing as scheduled. Missing or weak milestones can indicate a need for the brain to be balanced and reconnected.
Growth and development continue throughout childhood. Lifestyle, daily habits, and postures can contribute to your child's health.
The nervous system controls all of this. It also helps us to manage stress. Ensuring the brain can talk to the body can set your child up for success.
Postural changes placed on a woman’s body during pregnancy can cause a significant amount of stress to the muscles, ligaments, & tendons of the low back & pelvis . These stresses can lead to the pelvis becoming torqued or twisted, which can affect the balance of the pelvis, & may compromise the space for baby to move & grow.
Chiropractors certified in the Webster Technique work to restore a state of balance to the pelvis; by addressing the joints, muscles, & ligaments, to create an environment that allows for optimal space for baby.
The Webster technique is a chiropractic analysis and gentle adjustment of the sacrum. As with all chiropractic adjustments, our intent is to improve the nervous system so the body can function better. As with all sacral adjustments, pelvic balance is improved. A balanced pelvis reduces undue tension in the attached muscles and ligaments.
Birth is hard work. For mama and baby. Following birth, you've got your hands full with a newborn. Your life can be flipped upside down during this time and caring for yourself can be set aside.
Many women accept certain changes as "the price of childbirth," but making postpartum care a priority can help you to overcome the aches of nursing neck, body discomfort, or emotional challenges that may occur following birth.
Chiropractic care is one tool I recommend for all postpartum women. Chiropractic adjustments assists as your body heals from birth and gets used to carrying your baby in your arms. Aligning your body and balancing your nervous system can help to bring ease and balance to your physical body and emotional mind.
