A woman’s body goes through a multitude of physical, chemical, and emotional changes throughout pregnancy. Gentle and specific chiropractic adjustments can help a woman’s body integrate and adjust to these changes so that mom can focus on this miraculous time.
In addition to enhancing the function of the mother’s nerve system, chiropractic care establishes balance in the pregnant woman’s pelvis and reduces undue stress to her uterus and supporting ligaments. This optimizes the room the baby has for development.
Over 50% of women experience back pain during pregnancy. Studies have shown that 84% of pregnant women who utilized chiropractic care experienced relief from back pain. Another study concluded that pregnant women who are under regular chiropractic care experience 25-31% shorter labor times.
Chiropractic care helps relieve stress and restore communication within the nervous system. This provides an optimum environment for a healthy, comfortable pregnancy.
Using specialized techniques to ensure the gentlest of adjustments, Dr. Larissa provides chiropractic care to children to assist their bodies in developing optimally as they live, grow, and learn.
The birthing process is beautiful, yet demanding. As much as the process is laborious for the mama, it is for baby as well. No matter what kind of birth you have, baby undergoes tremendous stress as he or she enters this world.
In childhood, we develop the foundation for our physical, chemical, and emotional health. As children continue to grow, play, and experience life, their spines and nervous systems change at a rapid rate. With those changes, also come the many traumas of growth. While learning to crawl, walk, and run, a child’s nervous system adapts and integrates every slip, trip, and fall.
When there is interference in the nervous system, the body’s communication network, the body cannot function optimally and expression is inhibited. Pediatric chiropractic care clears the interference from your child’s nervous system, allowing your child to express their full potential for health. Give your child the best start possible. Allow us to assist your family in expressing a more vitalistic, vibrant life.
