The purpose of chiropractic care is not the treatment of conditions or disease; rather, it is the restoration of normal body function. As chiropractors, we work with the nervous system via gentle spinal adjustments. We reduce stress-related interference to the nervous system, thereby enhancing overall body function. All the systems of the body — circulatory, digestive, eliminatory, hormonal, glandular, immunological, muscular, reproductive, respiratory, and skeletal — depend on the optimal function of the nervous system.
Chiropractic is designed on the concept of vitalism. It is believed that the body has an Innate Intelligence to healing, and dis-ease occurs when the body’s natural ability to adapt to stress (physical, emotional, and chemical) is interrupted. The thing that disrupts this communication pathway is called a subluxation, which interferes with the normal function of the nervous system. By removing subluxations through a very safe, specific, and controlled force applied to a joint, the interference is removed and the body’s nervous system is able to function fully and properly. In essence, with chiropractic, true healing is coming from within the body rather than from the chiropractor’s adjustment.
Research shows that perinatal chiropractic care contributes to a more straightforward labor with less pain and trauma for mother + child. It can improve the balance and alignment of the spine and pelvis, and provide a more comfortable pregnancy, labor, + delivery for mother and baby. By restoring balance to the nervous system through gentle and specific nervous system- centered chiropractic adjustments, optimal function to the reproductive organs is restored, thus supporting the needs of your baby throughout pregnancy. Our chiropractors are certified in Webster Technique from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), and stay current with new research & trainings.
There are a lot of pressures and forces being exerted onto your baby during their journey into the world. A recent study by Viola Frymann demonstrated that 90% of newborns suffered the effects of birth trauma: associated strain through the neck and cranial areas following birth. Birth in its many different forms can be quite traumatic. While each birth is unique, there is always a chance that the baby suffers some sort of strain due to a variety of reasons. Even the most natural births can result in trauma that goes undetected. As researcher G. Gutmann has written, “The trauma from the birth process remains an under-publicized and therefore significantly under-treated problem.” Here is a list of some things that can cause birth trauma in infants:
Left uncorrected this trauma continues to impact a baby’s spinal growth + development, reducing the healthy function of the nervous system. 65% of the neurological development (development of the brain & nervous system) occurs during your child’s first year of life - it’s imperative to ensure your baby has every opportunity to maximize their neurospinal function during this time. Our chiropractors have extensive training from the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Assocation) and The Pediatric Experience to be able to serve little ones exceptional well.
We may utilize a variety of adjusting techniques throughout your care so that your body can receive the adjustments it needs at the appropriate time and place that is most synergistic for the overall balancing of your nervous system. Our chiropractors use a tonal analysis to determine where the nervous system interference is located within your body and are trained in Diversified, Thompson, Activator, Upper Cervical, Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT), and Craniosacral Technique.
