I am here to talk to you a little bit about how important chiropractic is during the pregnancy journey! Many women suffer from aches and pains during pregnancy. Chiropractic care is an excellent, alternative approach to dealing with things such as pain, muscle spasm, headaches and digestive issues while pregnant. Chiropractors offer holistic treatment that focuses on getting your body into optimal shape for giving birth.
Simple adjustments help to relieve the body of pain and spasm. As the belly gets larger, the low back tends to take on additional tension and stress. This can often manifest itself as things like pain and sciatica, which we hope to help relieve with chiropractic care.
Chiropractors like me may also focus on post-partum and infant/child care, getting you and your new baby ready to resume your regular life after you give birth. Chiropractic care is a safe and gentle way to address problems in infants and children. Birth is very physically demanding on both the mother and baby and sometimes issues arise after birth that need to be addressed. Chiropractors treat infants for things such as: torticollis, acid reflux, gastrointestinal problems and more! It is extremely important to get your newborn checked early by a chiropractor to assure proper alignment of the spine. Improper alignments often turn into larger issues down the road. Upper cervical misalignments in infants and children have been correlated to SIDS, autistic spectrum disorders and chronic ear infections. If that’s not reason enough to visit a chiropractor for a quick child-friendly alignment, I don’t know what is!
About me: As a chiropractor, it is my ultimate goal to make our community a healthier one, without the use of drugs and surgery for things that can be corrected or managed with alternative methods. It is also my goal to form a great referral network with the best providers in the Cleveland area, hence the reason The Relievery has asked me to do a short write up on chiropractic care. Their reflexology socks are an absolutely brilliant at-home way to help manage different symptoms. Chiropractic and reflexology stem from a lot of the same philosophies and are great to use together for overall wellness.
