Pregnancy: Prenatal Chiropractic
Proper spinal alignment and nervous system function is necessary for every human being, but one of the most important times to receive chiropractic care in a woman’s life is during pregnancy. From the moment your baby is conceived your body will go through a number of extraordinary changes. Some are visible and easy to see. Your belly grows, your posture changes, and there are also changes in the way you move and walk…or “waddle”.
Some are not so visible. We don’t see the millions of hormonal changes and chemical reactions occurring both in the mother and the developing baby. Every single one of these changes and reactions are controlled and coordinated through your nervous system; the body’s master control center. During pregnancy you need a nervous system that responds immediately and accurately to changing requirements in all parts of your body, which also means you need a healthy and happy spine.
As you gain weight it exerts excessive force on your spine and your joints. Those forces, along with postural changes, interfere with normal function in the nervous system. Additionally, a recent Mayo clinic study showed that for every pound of excess weight we add four pounds of extra pressure on our joints. This extra weight combined with changes in your gait and posture set the stage for back pain, neck pain, and pain in other joints. Chiropractic care can help and research suggests the same. Women under regular chiropractic care experience less pain and shorter labor times! What mom doesn’t want that?
Pregnancy should be an opportunity to reflect on your family’s plans and dreams—not a time to struggle with pain. So, during this meaningful time, be proactive! Get plenty of rest, exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet, drink plenty of water, and find the best chiropractor!
Infants and Kids: Pediatric Chiropractic
Now, delivery is not just tough on mom, but also on her baby. For this reason, we provide gentle and safe chiropractic care for many infants and young kids. Many parents bring in their newborns within the first few days after giving birth to be checked for nerve interference and spinal misalignment because the birthing process can be traumatic. Research has shown that there is around 60-90 lbs. of pressure and torque placed on a baby's head and neck as they are being delivered.
We see children of all ages. It is very important that parents have their children checked in our Castle Rock office as soon as possible because as the twig is bent, so grows the tree and it is far easier to raise a health child than it is to fix broken adults. We don't just believe your child has unlimited potential. It is our job to help unleash it! We are passionate about raising the next generation as healthy and highly functioning as humanly possible. We will do our best to make sure they have an opportunity to heal, grow, and thrive!
