At every stage of life, from infancy through 100 years of age, we all experience degrees of stress to the master control system of our body, the central nervous system. Stress on the central nervous system can happen in many ways, such as learning to walk, falls, giving birth or being born, pollutants in the air and water, alcohol, medications, relationships, pressure at work, financial stress...just to name a few! When your central nervous system experiences stress, the result is a decrease in the communication pathway between your brain and every cell, tissue and organ in your body. This lack of communication can manifest in your body as sensory disorders, lack of coordination, frequent sickness, digestive problems, breathing issues, fatigue, and many more. Our focus is to find these areas of nervous system interference and correct them with gentle, specific chiropractic adjustments. The result of the chiropractic care at our office includes you and your family experiencing more balance in mind, body and spirit, more adaptability to the stresses of daily life, accelerated healing, and optimal bodily function.
Infants and children need a healthy nervous system to reach their full potential. With the exponential growth and development of our children there is no better time for their nervous system to be in balance. Chiropractic care immediately after birth and periodically thereafter helps your child to express more of their health potential. A difficult birth can cause trauma and underlying injury to your newborn's spine and central nervous system. As your child continues to grow and develop, their spine undergoes various levels of stress as they learn to walk, crawl, play and become involved in sports and activities. Many of these experiences result in interference to the nervous system of your child. Pediatric chiropractic involves gentle, specialized techniques for the tiniest of newborns throughout all stages of childhood to create higher levels of health expression. We use gentle adjusting techniques that allow your baby or child to feel comfortable, safe, and nurtured. As children get older, we talk with them about how their body works. Their questions are terrific, and we are always amazed by their insight! Connecting children to the innate wisdom of their bodies is something we treasure. Benefits of pediatric chiropractic care include optimal brain development, achieving developmental milestones appropriately, a strong immune system, a balanced digestive system, improved sleep, the prevention of injuries, and optimal health physically and emotionally.
Pregnancy is a very exciting time in life. Women's bodies put forth heroic effort to create and sustain life. It is during this time that the innate wisdom of their bodies and their nervous systems are given the opportunity to shine. From the moment of conception, a magnificent cascade of events takes place in perfect coordination. This innate wisdom, like a conductor, beautifully orchestrates its symphony of hormonal, cellular, and structural fluctuations via the nervous system. It is of utmost importance that the nervous system be in balance throughout pregnancy. When a mother's nervous system is strong, her baby can be strong. Prenatal chiropractic adjustments help expectant mothers to have a balanced nervous system and structure, which is vital to the development of her baby and helps mom to have a more enjoyable pregnancy. A mother's pelvis must be in a state of harmony not only for her comfort, but also for her baby's comfort. If there is structural harmony, growth and development are effortless, she is better able to adapt to her changing body, and pregnancy is so much more enjoyable. One of the methods used in our office for structural balancing is called the Webster Technique. Dr. Adam and Dr. Michelle are both certified in the well-known Webster Technique by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. It is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment for pregnant mothers that reduces interference to the nervous system and balances pelvic muscles and ligaments. This adjustment optimizes uterine function and allows for a safer, easier birth for mom and baby. It is a gentle method of adjusting mom's pelvis in order to reduce uterine constraint and allow the baby to move freely into the best position possible for birth. Simply stated, a balanced pelvis and optimally positioned baby make for an easier labor and delivery. Well-informed birth professionals love to hear that their moms are receiving Webster Technique because it significantly reduces complications and labor time. The health of your body before pregnancy, during all stages of pregnancy, and after the birth of your newborn affects both you and your baby for a lifetime. Chiropractic care allows for proper nerve flow and alignment of the pelvis and spine. Increased function due to chiropractic care improves fertility, and optimizes development of your baby during pregnancy and as your body prepares for the birth process.
