Chiropractic Care For Moms And Kids

Few things are more contagious than receiving a big smile from a child. Their laughter radiates the hope of a bright future, and there’s nothing more beautiful or precious. From the start, we want to ensure children are loved, cared for, educated, and well-adjusted. But well-adjusted?

Connecting The Truth

Many people are surprised when we emphasize the importance of children being well-adjusted. In reality, no group needs proper nerve health more than our children. Their brains and bodies develop at an incredible pace. Experts estimate that the average child falls nearly 2,000 times by the age of three. A slight shift in the spine that doesn’t correct itself can block vital nerve signals, which can negatively impact a child’s health, development, and well-being.

When Can Children Receive Care?

Some of the first spinal misalignments can occur during birth, which can be traumatic for a newborn. Many parents choose to have their children proactively checked for spinal issues. Regular spinal checkups during development and active sports years can improve well-being and prevent health issues later in life. Safe, effective, and drug-free chiropractic adjustments can be tailored for children’s developing bodies.

Can Pregnant Women Receive Chiropractic Care?

Yes! Chiropractors specialize in caring for pregnant women from preconception to birth. Many expectant mothers find relief from increased lower back pain through chiropractic adjustments, which are safe for both mother and child. Chiropractic care can be appealing to those wanting to avoid medications for back pain. Chiropractors also offer nutrition, ergonomic, and exercise advice for a healthy pregnancy.

Chiropractic care is also beneficial after childbirth. In the weeks following labor, ligaments that loosened during pregnancy begin to tighten again. It’s ideal to address joint problems before the ligaments revert to their pre-pregnancy state to prevent issues like muscle tension, headaches, and shoulder problems.

Am I Too Old For Chiropractic Care?

As the body ages, the need for treatment that supports better spinal function increases. Chiropractic care and other drug-free rehabilitation options are ideal for older adults, helping improve mobility, vitality, endurance, and appetite. Many patients also report decreased arthritis symptoms and other age-related ailments.
