Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy: Safety and Benefits

  Chiropractic care is health maintenance of the spinal column, discs,  related nerves and bone geometry without drugs or surgery. It involves  the art and science of adjusting misaligned joints of the body,  especially of the spine, which reduces spinal nerve stress and therefore  promotes health throughout the body. 

 

There are many hormonal and physical changes you’ll experience during  your pregnancy. Some of these will have an impact on your posture and  comfort. As your baby becomes heavier, your center of gravity shifts,  and your posture adjusts accordingly.

These physical changes during your pregnancy can lead to a misaligned spine or joints.

Other uncomfortable changes during pregnancy might include:

  • a protruding abdomen resulting in an increased curve of your back
  • changes to your pelvis as your body begins to prepare for labor
  • adaptations to your posture 

Regular  visits to a chiropractor during your pregnancy can address these  issues. One collaborative chiropractic and medical study revealed that  75 percent of pregnant chiropractic care patients reported pain relief.  Plus, adjustments designed to re-establish balance and alignment to your  pelvis and spine will do more than just make you feel better.  Chiropractic care can be beneficial for your baby, too.

Why Do Your Children Need To See A Pediatric Chiropractor?

 

Top 5 Reasons To Take Your Child To A Chiropractor

  1. To promote proper growth and development and to limit health challenges such as issues with nursing and reflux.  
  2. To  allow a child’s nervous system and spine to grow optimally and without  interference. To reduce ear infections, bed wetting, asthma and  allergies.  
  3. To improve a child’s immune system and digestive health and to limit colic and constipation.
  4. To  encourage nerve and brain development (neural plasticity). To promote  proper perception and awareness preventing labels such as ADHD, Sensory  Integration Disorder and other neurodevelopmental disorders.
  5. To  be proactive about your child’s overall health and wellbeing which will  limit and support them through colds and infections and allow them to  meet their optimal potential.

Types of Injuries

Sports Injuries

  Most of the sports injuries share one common point- slip disc or disc inflammation. The focal point of chiropractic care lies with  spinal manipulation. Alongside it, stretching of muscles, ice pack,  deep-tissue massage and minimal (or zero) oral medication are what make chiropractic such an ‘accepted’ therapy among athletes.  

Auto Accident Injuries

Dr. Meckle understand the stress and pain patients are in following personal injury accidents. She will analyze, diagnose, and create an individualized treatment plan for whiplash and soft tissue injuries. She will thoroughly explain your treatment and update your insurance agency on your behalf. 

 

Work Related Injuries

Most work injuries are caused by overuse and repetitive stress injuries. Overtime, small tasks done with poor posture can lead to acute and chronic pain, which can result in reduced worker productivity, lost time from work, disability, and an inability to perform job tasks.
