Pediatric Chiropractic Care
Did you know that chiropractic care is crucial for children in the early stages of their development? Adjustments have to happen to correct the misalignments in newborns that are brought about by the stressful delivery process. Chiropractic care resolves common childhood conditions like digestive issues, colic, ear infections, asthma, acid reflux, and torticollis. Our team of chiropractic professionals will relieve your child’s pain and ensure his or her musculoskeletal system develops properly.
Prenatal Chiropractic Care
During pregnancy, a woman’s body releases relaxin, a hormone responsible for loosening the pelvis ligaments and other areas as the body prepares to give birth. At this time, the pelvis and spine may shift out of alignment, changing the mother’s center of gravity. These changes often lead to back pain, neck pain, nerve pain, and pelvic pain.
That is where our chiropractic care services come in. We try to alleviate these pains in the expectant mother’s body via natural treatment. Health on Earth Wellness Center has professionals who are knowledgeable in the Webster Technique, which is a chiropractic technique that is specifically tailored to pregnant women.
Chiropractic Care for Children
Ignoring spinal misalignments during the early stages of the infant’s life could lead to detrimental problems later on in the child’s life. Many of the spinal issues that adults suffer from could have been avoided through chiropractic care. You will be shocked that even the natural birthing process could place stress on the baby’s spine and nervous system. The stress could be the beginning of newborn problems, which, if not addressed at the right time, will lead to long-term issues as the child grows.
Children’s issues that can be addressed by chiropractic care include:
- Ear infections
- Sleep disturbances
- Breathing problems
- Chronic infections
