Pregnancy Chiropractic Care

I experienced so much pain and discomfort in my first 2 pregnancies. I can't believe I hadn't discovered chiropractic! My 3rd pregnancy with chiropractic care has been sooo different. All pregnant moms need to know about chiropractic."

We understand that the health of a pregnant woman is vitally important and the care we offer helps both mom and child. Proper nervous system and spinal function is crucial to the development of your baby and essential to the well-being and comfort of mom. The effects of chiropractic care during pregnancy are far-reaching and extend way beyond treating pain.

By ensuring that the pelvis and spine are in proper alignment and motion, chiropractic care helps to ensure that the developing baby has plenty of room to grow within the womb. By maintaining this proper alignment and motion throughout pregnancy, chiropractic care can also improve the ability of the expecting mother to have a safe and natural birth process – which is something that is extremely vital to the health of both mom and baby.

The modern birth process is often one of the most traumatic events that a person will endure in their life. Unfortunately today, many health care providers choose to look at pregnancy as a “medical condition” rather than the incredibly safe and natural process that it is. A woman’s body is beautifully designed for the birth process, and difficulties can arise if mom is functioning at less than 100%.

Pediatric Chiropractic Care

Our specialty focus and expertise in pediatric chiropractic care passion started from our own experience with health challenges as children. We know that from birth, children are designed to be healthy and resilient. However that is not the case right now for many families. Over 40% of children have chronic health conditions such as autism, asthma, learning disabilities, ADHD, and epilepsy.

Unfortunately, parents whose children experience health issues early on are told in the medical model to not worry, "they will grow out of it." This is simply not true. Children are suffering with things like colic, recurrent ear infections, constipation, allergies, sensory issues and developmental delays, and far too many of these kids then grow into chronic health challenges without proper help.

Many nervous system and alignment challenges begin in the birth process. Even so called 'natural' birthing methods can stress an infant's spine and developing nervous system. The resulting irritation to the nerve system caused by spinal and cranial misalignment can result in many newborn, infant and toddler health complaints. Colic, breathing problems, nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions and chronic infections can often be traced to nerve system stress. Since significant spinal and cranial trauma can occur at birth, many parents have their newborns checked right away.

As babies grow into children their nervous systems undergo many chemical traumas from what is put into their bodies as well as from the environment. Their nervous system and spines also go through physical forms of trauma as they learn to walk and crawl, ride a bike, and become involved in sports as well. Chemical and physical traumas may result in small yet significant spinal and cranial misalignments (subluxations) and nerve system stress. Some trauma results in chronically sick kids, and sensory and spectrum challenges. Other trauma throughout childhood may not result in childhood issues, and instead nervous system issues later on in life.

Identifying potential nervous system tension and stress and spinal and cranial misalignment (subluxation) early on in children is key to helping bring kids back to the healthy, vibrant life they are meant to live. Great Life Chiropractic's experience and specialty in pediatric care sets us apart, in helping identify nerve stress and getting incredible results with everything from fussy and colicky infants, to chronically sick kids, to sensory and spectrum challenges.

Another essential part of our pregnancy and pediatric care is providing parents with information for questions concerning health and wellness. We have a wealth of wellness resources to provide you with answers to the questions you might have!

If you feel your child may have any signs of nerve stress or cranial or spinal misalignment, please contact us to find out what you can do about it. Posture and tone are a very telling sign of the health of a child’s nerve system and spine, if your child has poor posture and increased tone please do not hesitate to call us. We are passionate about getting to the root cause of your child's struggle or health challenges.
