One might ask why a child needs chiropractic care. Well, why do they need quality sleep, proper nutrition, adequate exercise or a loving environment? The answer to all of these questions is the same…because these things give our bodies what they need to grow and develop healthfully.
As a parent, you can attest to the numerous stressors, falls, growth spurts, and the like that can cause subluxation in the spine on a regular basis. Chiropractic care helps support a healthy nervous system by reducing/removing subluxation to help improve joint functioning, proprioception, muscle firing, and neurological control of all organs, glands and tissues. So if you want to give your child the best opportunity for health, regular chiropractic care is a must.
Carry Healthier and Deliver with More Comfort
To support a healthy pregnancy, chiropractic allows more ease in the body as it goes through so many changes. It helps reduce discomfort in the body, allows better pelvic movement and reduces uterine torsion, allowing the body to have more balance and the baby to have more space in the uterus. When the uterus is balanced, the baby has the opportunity to get into proper position. Dr. Julie Restad is certified in the Webster Technique, which she utilizes to assess the pregnant patient. While the Webster Technique is NOT a baby turning technique, it does allow the opportunity for the baby to change positions.
A faster, easier birth is achieved when there is normal functioning of the sacroiliac joints which allows for proper descent of the baby through the pelvis. Many midwives encourage pregnant patients to seek chiropractic care for this very reason.
