We support healthy pregnancies
Mommy and Me Chiropractic is a family-focused pediatric and prenatal chiropractic office. We understand the health of a pregnant woman is vitally important to the overall wellbeing of both the mother and child. Proper alignment and function of the nervous system is crucial to the development of the baby, and for the comfort and wellbeing of the mother. Chiropractic care during pregnancy is a safe and effective way to maintain a healthier pregnancy, control symptoms of nausea, relieve back and neck pain, reduce the time of labor and delivery, and even prevent a potential cesarean section.
Our chiropractors are trained to work specifically with pregnant women and have developed special techniques for optimal care. One of these is the webster technique which establishes balance in the pelvis, reducing undue stress to the uterus and ligaments. A balanced pelvis makes it easier for a breech baby to turn naturally on its own without the need of invasive medical procedures.
Due to the unfortunate problems caused by increased C-section rates, poor infant health and higher mortality rates, it is extremely important to have your child checked for spinal misalignment as soon as possible after birth. A misalignment in the nervous system causes stress and ill health in the body. The most common signs we see in our office are reflux and colic, trouble sleeping, and issues with breastfeeding. All of these issues can be resolved through chiropractic adjustments designed specifically for babies. The birth process is a very common cause of misaligments, especially a birth with many interventions. Chiropractors are the only ones trained to detect and remove these misaligments, and doing so will help to ensure that ill health does not follow for your newborn.
As children continue to grow their spines undergo many forms of trauma as they learn to walk and crawl, play, and become active in sports. Many of these things may again, result in misaligments in the spine, which can easily be detected and removed by a doctor of chiropractic.
Chiropractic can help your children remain healthy
If you feel your child may have any signs of a misaligment, please contact us to find out what you can do about it. Posture is a very telling sign of the health of a child’s spine, if your child has poor posture please do not hesitate to call us. Remember, prevention is the best medicine and it’s better to start young so your child can grow and function 100% and truly be well.
