WHAT ARE OTHER BENEFITS OF CHIROPRACTIC?
I AM PREGNANT. WHY SHOULD I SEE A CHIROPRACTOR?
Maintaining a healthy pregnancy is your goal, but experiencing back pain and nausea does not make pregnancy the most enjoyable time of your life.
Receiving regular Chiropractic care during your pregnancy may help:
- control symptoms of nausea
- reduce the time of natural labour & delivery
- relieve back, neck and other joint pain
- prevent the possibility of having a cesarean section.
IS CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT APPROPRIATE FOR CHILDREN ?
Yes! Children can benefit from Chiropractic care.
Children are very physically active and experience many types of falls and blows from activities of daily living as well as from participating in sports.
Injuries such as these may cause many symptoms including back and neck pain, stiffness, soreness or discomfort.
If your child is sensory-deficient, your Chiropractor will be able to distinguish such deficits, and will be able to guide you.
Chiropractic is also effective in treating colic and reflux in infants. In our practice, we often find that "colic" or irritable babies are over-fed and/or fed incorrectly.
We also find that babies that are born via C-section, too become "colicky". These babies do not go through the natural birth canal, and so do not receive the uterine contractions which are necessary for stimulation of important nerves and reflexes. This will lead to spinal joint restrictions and an irritable, tense nervous system.
Addressing spinal joint misalignment, feeding problems and learning other means of comforting your irritable baby, will help ease their discomfort.
