Family Care (Family, Pediatric, Pregnancy)
Our office is committed to providing great chiropractic care for families in our community. Regardless of how you become hurt (auto accident, work accident, or at home) we provide care for any member of your family. Often we meet families of which the entire family is living on one or more medications, who have been dealing with the same health challenges for weeks, months, and even years. America is starting to realize that drugs seldom fix the problem. They may temporarily alleviate the symptoms, but if mom continues to suffer from headaches, dad continues to have back problems, and little Johnny still has allergies, then there is another CAUSE to their health challenges.
Chiropractic for me and my family? Why? We don't have back or neck pain. If you are wondering about the answer to this question, you'll want to read on.
As chiropractors, we often encounter those who understand the importance of regular exams for their entire family's eyes, hearing, and teeth, but who overlook routine family spinal check-ups. In fact, they could be the most important check-ups you and your family can receive.
Today, people just like you are choosing safe, natural, chiropractic care to help maximize their own natural healing. Parents of children who receive regular chiropractic care often report that their kids seem healthier than other children; they get fewer colds and other childhood diseases. Adults experiencing regular Chiropractic Care often report improvement in all areas of life including decreased physical symptoms and overall improved quality of life.
So what can cause spinal misalignments and nerve stress in a child? One of the most traumatic physical stresses a child faces is birth. Then they fall learning to crawl, walk, and run. After they've mastered that, they begin to play sports and sit at school desks all day. Spinal degeneration has been documented as starting as early as the teenage years, indicating there was an underlying spinal problem that was never corrected as a child.
Families who seek chiropractic care together get healthy and well together. Chiropractic Care works with the inner wisdom of the body that is designed to continually work towards keeping every individual healthy. If you're not healthy, you must ask yourself why? Why do some get sick every time the weather changes when others do not. When two people who share the same experiences, why does one get sick and the other does not. Your entire body, including your immune system is controlled through your Nervous System. Doctors of Chiropractic work with the Spine and Nervous System to help you reach your FULL potential. For many people this can result in less pain, better rest, more energy, less sickness, fewer allergies, and a greater quality of life.

If you have a subluxation, (Link to: What's a subluxation?) this can lead to muscle spasms, inflammation, nerve irritation, and intrauterine constraint. We utilize safe chiropractic techniques to remove the areas of subluxation, relax the pelvis and spine, and decrease the intrauterine constraint.
We are also trained in using the Webster Technique which aids in relieving the musculoskeletal causes of intrauterine constraint. We use this technique on expecting moms to help insure less constraint and aid in proper turning of the baby.
