Proper Spinal Alignment

One of the long term benefits of chiropractic care is improved overall health.  The bony structures of the skull and spine protect our nervous system.  Our nervous system and peripheral nerves control and direct every function our bodies perform, from digestion to movement to immunity.   If there is interference because of a misalignment of the bony structures, the nervous system can’t function optimally.  Often, people become aware of a misalignment when they have pain, but these misalignments can start long before pain or other symptoms.  Getting regular adjustments, even if you have no symptoms, will allow you to optimize the function of your nervous system and body…helping  you live a healthier life.

Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

Chiropractic care during pregnancy is one of the most important things an expectant mother can do to to prepare for childbirth.  Many mothers are nervous about getting chiropractic care during pregnancy but it is safe and gentle for both mother and baby at every stage of pregnancy.

Getting chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy help to prepare the pelvis for an easier pregnancy and birth by balancing the bony structures, muscles and ligaments.  Removing torsion from the pelvis and the ligaments that support the uterus can potentially reduce aberrant tension on the woman’s uterus.

Chiropractic adjustments can reduce interference in the mother’s nervous system and allow her body to optimize the co-ordination of every system and function.  By improving maternal function, we decrease the potential for unnecessary intervention.

Chiropractic care before and during pregnancy can help make your pregnancy and delivery successful and healthy, but it can also help ease some of the discomforts of pregnancy like low back pain, sciatica, round ligament pain and pubic symphysis discomfort.
