Pregnancy and Chiropractic

Posted: August 27, 2015

Did you know that chiropractic is great for pregnant women?  Being under chiropractic care during your pregnancy is one of the greatest things mothers can do for themselves and their baby.

During pregnancy mothers are told to eat right, take their vitamins, get plenty of rest, and to exercise.  All of these things are important because your body is in the process of making a baby.  Since your body is doing so many things it is important to make sure that it is functioning at its highest level.  That is where chiropractic comes in.  A scientific specific chiropractic adjustment removes interference to the mother’s nervous system.  This allows her brain and body communicate better to improve baby development and uterine function.

Also, a woman’s body goes through many changes during pregnancy with the hormonal changes and increased body weight. Chiropractic adjustments align the spine and the pelvis to relieve discomfort in the low back and other aches and pains associated with being pregnant.  This helps to relieve tension on the muscles and ligaments of the spine and pelvis and allows for better positioning for the baby.  Proper alignment of the spine and pelvis will also help to improve the labor and delivery.

If you are pregnant, or know someone in the Kernersville, Winston Salem, Walkertown, Greensboro, or High Point areas, who is pregnant.  Please call our office today at 336-907-752 to make an appointment and find out the benefits of care for you and your baby.

Did you know that regular chiropractic care is beneficial for your child?  Some people think of a chiropractor as only taking care of back pain, but this is the furthest thing from the truth.  Chiropractic care is beneficial to your overall health and parents who understand this often choose to have their child checked by a chiropractor regularly.

I recently read an article titled “10 Reasons Why Parents Take Healthy Children to Chiropractors”.  Here are the 10 reasons, and if you would like to read the full article the link is below:

10.  To help kids stay in tip-top shape.
9.  To help kids stay fun and light hearted.
8.  To promote body balance – helping to resolve poor posture, asthma, allergies and bed-wetting.
7.  To diminish nerve interference which may impact their child’s capacity to learn and concentrate.
6.  Encourages children to thrive by supporting digestive strength.
5.  To reduce the detrimental impact our modern world has on our children’s health.
4.  To help resolve breastfeeding issues and colic.
3.  To help strengthen their child’s immunity – encourage fewer colds, ear-aches and general illness.
2. To support “first-class” nerve communication throughout the body to promote health and wellbeing.
1.  To encourage good neural plasticity (brain and nerve development)

So as you can see parents are bringing their children to a chiropractor to improve their overall well-being.  We feel it is important for every child to get checked and receive regular chiropractic care.  Bring your child to our End of Summer Kids Day on Friday, August 7, 2015 to learn how to get your child started with chiropractic.  There will be posture checks for the children, exercise time, coloring, games, door prizes, food, and more.
