Chiropractic is safe and effective for babies and children. Birth is a traumatic event and every newborn should be checked by a chiropractor. Left unchecked, your child may develop problems later down the road. The nervous system controls everything in your body and removing the interference between the body and the brain will allow your child to develop optimally and live a happier and healthier.
Adjustments during pregnancy may help with common symptoms, such as heartburn, nausea and morning sickness. Adjustments specifically to the pelvis can calm the muscles and allow baby to move into a more comfortable position.
Women under chiropractic care often report having faster, easier labors with less medical intervention.
"Chiropractic care in pregnancy is vital to the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby in pregnancy and birth."- Jeanne Ohm, DC
"The choices you make before conception and during each stage of your pregnancy will be a factor in your baby's wellness. During your pregnancy, the lack of interference to the baby's development gives them an opportunity for the inborn intelligence to develop their physical, emotional and spiritual nature."
There are numerous case studies reporting successful pregnancies after consistent chiropractic visits. The lumbar and sacral regions house the parts of the nervous system that directly connect to the reproductive organs. When a subluxation is present, these nerves become irritated and their connecting organs do not function optimally. Combined with nutrition, exercise and lifestyle changes, I will help you give your body its best chance to become pregnant.
Your child's natural curiosity during this stage of his or her life will lead to many falls and tumbles. With this minor traumas, your child's spinal bones may lose their normal position or ability to move, causing interference to your child's nervous system.

During this time your child's spine should be growing straight, and from the side should have healthy normal curves, which makes this the worst time for your child to have sports injuries and falls.
Additionally, the lifestyle habits of today's youth include hours spend on computers, tablets, phone and video games. All of these activities may lead to poor postural positions and repetitive stress on your child's developing spine.
With these minor traumas, spinal bones may lose their normal position or ability to move causing interference to their nervous system. Children in this age category should also be seen a chiropractor to prevent scoliosis.
By this age, your son or daughter has probably experienced a fall or injury that affected the development of their spine but has not resulted in any pain. Teens tend to spend lots of time on the tv, computer, tablet or phone that contributes to subluxations.

Symptoms of subluxation in adults are headaches, indigestion, heartburn, anxiety, sleeping issues and more. Adults commonly also experience symptoms of long-term subluxation, such as arthritis and degeneration. While I can not make them go away, we can work together to prevent them from getting worse.
I also work with my patients to set goals surrounding water intake, nutrition, exercise and mental health.
