The Doctors of Body Healing Chiropractic are certified in Webster Technique. The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment of the pelvis. Research has proven that this technique improves functional movement within the pelvic structure to allow for proper space for the growing fetus.
Chiropractic adjustments are proven by research to be safe for pregnant women as well as their unborn child. We have several techniques that has been verified to ensure the proper treatment delivered to each pregnant mother. Pre-Natal Chiropractic care is best to commence prior to conception, but we can treat patients at any stage of the pregnancy.
Preserving proper alignment during pregnancy is vital for the pregnant mom and her unborn child. When a woman is pregnant, her body will be going through biomechanical changes. As the baby grows in her womb, the gravitational forces on her spine are changing, thus creating pelvic distortions and altered biomechanics. Over time these distortions become subluxations, creating several issues during the pregnancy.
Many pregnant patients undergoing chiropractic care experience:
Post-Natal care is equally as important as Pre-Natal care. After the mother gives birth, her pelvic biomechanics go over a series of changes. These changes may create discomfort while walking, nursing and sleeping. At Body Healing Chiropractic we restore the pelvic balance and posture with adjustments, therapeutic exercises and similar to the ones performed during prenatal care. It can also be beneficial to mobilize the thoracic region due to positions during breastfeeding, bottle feeding or carrying positions.
Our doctors at Body Healing Chiropractic believe that chiropractic care for a child is primordial in order to promote a healthy lifestyle. Regular spinal checks are a necessary part of effective care in a child’s health program. Research has shown that chiropractic care is very safe and extremely effective in children. Contrary to the popular belief, the pediatric adjustments are very different from an adult adjustment. We offer an array of techniques that are safe and gentle for children.
Did you know that children are very likely to have subluxations during the birthing process? The baby’s spine is twisted and stretched which cause subluxations. Most modern birth processes put an excessive traction on the infant’s spine which include:
The children’s first years are very important as they develop motor/sensory processes as well as what we call secondary curves on their spines. They begin to learn movements such as crawling and walking which requires a lot of practice, causing them to fall down numerous times. These milestones cause stressors to a child’s spine and produces subluxations which diminish the nervous system’s innate response to the whole body.
Chiropractic treatment is proven to help children with the following conditions:
Consulting a chiropractor is always a smart move after having anaccident. Injuries on the neck injuries & whiplash, back injuries, soft tissue injuries, and help you loosen stiff muscles after the vehicular accident occurs.
It’s important to listen to your chiropractor after your accident,as we arebest prepared to evaluate anddiagnose your injuries andprovide the most corrective treatment to help you heal.
The first step in healing after an accident is to realize that you need to see a chiropractor to help ease your pain, even if it appears days after your accident.
Over the last several years, a great deal of research has proven that injuries can and do occur in low impact collisions. The most common injury is whiplash or neck injuries. Whiplash was discovered to occur in sudden changes of speed of only 2.5 miles per hour, with minor back injuries also occurring.
While standards in automobile bumpers are made to withstand damage at five miles per hour, the human body does not withstand damage at this speed, or any speed for that matter. When a vehicle doesn’t absorb the force of the crash, the occupant of the vehicle does, leading to many forms of neck, back and spinal injuries. Often times, injuries incurred during an auto accident cannot be seen externally. Those such as soft tissue injuries (injuries to muscles, ligaments and discs) can heal with scar tissue, which can ache years later. In the meantime, the damage to the spine can lead to: recurring headaches, neck pain, stiffness, chronic muscle tension and spasms, lower back pain, spinal disc degeneration, inflamed arthritis, sore and tight inflexible muscles. You will also have a greater chance of repeat injury and poor posture due to the damage within the spinal column and joints.
Delays in the onset of pain are also common. Joint injuries in auto accidents may cause post-traumatic osteoarthritis. This is a speeding up of the arthritis process with development at an earlier age than in people who have not had traumas relating to automobile accidents.
