Pregnancy and Chiropractic

Posted: August 27, 2015
By: Dr. Craig Hensley

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.

Professionals use Chiropractic and So Should You

Many people know the name of professional golfer Jordan Spieth.  This year he became the second youngest player to ever win the masters and he did it while tying the 72-hole record.  He then went on to win the US Open and came very close to winning the British Open.   What many people don’t know is that during his winning speech Spieth thanked his chiropractor for being a part of his winning team.  

And speaking of the British Open, winner Zach Johnson receives regular chiropractic care.  He has been under care since he was five days old because his father is a chiropractor.

These two men just won 3 of the 4 biggest golf tournaments in the world and they choose to have regular chiropractic adjustments to keep them playing at the highest level.  When competing against the best players in the world you need that something extra to give you an advantage over the competition.  Golfers and many other professional athletes, including NFL, MLB, NHL, and MLS players, choose chiropractic as that something extra.  Regular chiropractic adjustments help to prevent injuries, increase range of motion, improve the body’s ability to function at its optimum level.

If these world class athletes use chiropractic care to benefit them and their profession, then think about how it can benefit you.  Regular care will help you in all the activities of your everyday life, whether it is at work or school, playing with your children, working out, or getting out on the golf course on the weekends.

So if you are ready to get started with chiropractic or you have questions, please call us at 336-904-0752.

Thank you Kernersville NC

Chiropractic Care is Part of a Healthy Lifestyle

     People in Kernersville, North Carolina, just like everywhere in the world are looking for ways to improve their health.  We all know that health does not come from a bottle or a secret pill, but it comes from consistently making good health choices.  When people think of healthy choices they think of eating right, drinking plenty of water, working out, relieving stress, and getting plenty of sleep.  Another major health decision should be to regularly receive specific scientific chiropractic care.

     Many people think of chiropractic care as taking care of back and neck pain.  Specific scientific chiropractic care is so much more than that.  The goal of every chiropractic adjustment is to relieve interference to the nervous system to allow the body to function at its highest level.  If your nervous system is working properly then you will have optimal health.  Pain relief is a by-product of the nervous system working properly.  

     Our nervous system is the control center of our entire body.  It tells every single cell in the body how to function.  The nervous system is made up of the brain, the spinal cord and the nerves that go to every cell in our body.  Our spines protect our spinal cord, but as we have physical traumas, emotional stress, and chemical imbalances the spine can become misaligned and can interfere with the nervous system.  The only way to remove this interference is through the specific scientific chiropractic adjustment.  The adjustment restores motion of the spine and relieves the interference to the nervous system allowing your body to function and heal itself.  

     Once the nervous system is functioning at its optimal levels, then all of your healthy lifestyle choices will have better results.  With a properly functioning nervous system your body is going to process the healthy food better to get the nutrients to every cell.  Your body is going to be stronger and it will improve your workouts to make meet your workout goals.  You are going to be less stressed and be able to relax and sleep better.

     So if you are ready to add specific scientific chiropractic care to your healthy lifestyle, and live or work in the Kernersville area, call Triad Family Chiropractic at 336-904-0752 to set up an appointment today.
