It is very common for women to experience back, hip, and leg pain during pregnancy due to the changes that are happening to their body and the extra weight put on their frame. The National Institute of Health estimates that 50 percent of pregnant women will experience back pain at some point in their pregnancy. Chiropractic care has been shown to effectively relieve much of the pain that is experienced during pregnancy. We are trained in the Webster technique, which is a special technique used specifically on pregnant patients. Chiropractic care during pregnancy helps not only realign the body and provides optimal nerve communication throughout the body, but it also reduces pressure put on the abdominal and pelvic ligaments allowing the baby to have more room in the uterus. This allows the baby to have a better chance of being in the proper position for birth.
Chiropractic care is also safe on babies! 95 percent of babies have spinal misalignments after birth. Chiropractic care on babies and toddlers has been shown to not only aid in their proper development, but also help with other common issues they might face. These issues include colic, reflux, sleeping, breastfeeding, ear infections, wetting the bed, and many others. All kids experience falls, spills, and accidents so it is important to get them in and get them checked to help them function at their optimal level.
