Chiropractic for a Healthier and Happier Pregnancy
Pediatric Chiropractor in Palmyra, PA: Dr. Dennis J. Fitterer offers chiropractic care for expecting mothers. When your body goes through the various stages of pregnancy and labor, your spine is subjected to an extreme amount of stress. After all, it has to constantly adjust itself to support the growing weight of another person over a period of nine months. The center of gravity is shifted forward and a substantial amount of weight gain adds stress to the spine of the expecting mother. This stress frequently causes lower back pain, headaches or migraines, nausea, insomnia, and other symptoms that can affect your quality of life.
Over 50% of pregnant women complain of lower back pain during their pregnancy. This pain is mostly caused by trying to balance weight between an overworked spine and support system. With this being said, an uncomplicated delivery has a lot to do with the state of your body. A body that is stressed, misaligned and worn out can result in a painful delivery and create problems with the baby’s positioning.
A study performed by the American Medical Association Board of Trustees concluded that women who received chiropractic care during their third trimester of pregnancy were able to carry and deliver with far more comfort. The need for painkillers was also reduced by half in several patients in the same study.
Chiropractic for Healthy Infants, Toddlers and Teenagers
Pediatric Chiropractor Palmyra PA: Most people do not realize that infants or children can benefit from chiropractic care just as must as adults. Infants in particular are susceptible to a wide range of ailments caused by a traumatic birth or c-section.
Misalignment’s or subluxations put pressure on the spinal nerves and interfere with the body’s ability to coordinate or control phases of growth and development. Chiropractic care for infants and children can correct these potential problems through careful and effective adjustments that remedy misalignment’s.
Children need chiropractic care as they age because a lot of the problems they experience as adults stems from their childhood. For instance, when a child is learning to walk they fall often, sometimes up to 20 times per day. Children also break bones easily and have poor posture (something that is extremely common today).
Posture problems result from spending many hours in front of a computer or television, playing rough with friends or carrying backpacks all day long at school.
It is best to deal with any potential injury, misalignment, postural problem or condition as soon as possible. After all, the nervous system controls and coordinates every stage of growth and development. It is important to keep your child’s nervous system as healthy as possible through regular chiropractic treatment.
I started out bringing my daughter here looking for other options. She had already had 5 sets of tubes in her ears and was needing a 6th set. She was treated by ENT’s and with antibiotics for years, none of which helped with the long term. We’ve been having her adjusted for a year and a half and we haven’t had another ear infection since! Since seeing such great results with her, I’ve became a patient along with my other daughter as well. I’ve been able to start running again and just feel better overall! Doc and Ms. Wendy always take great care of us. I highly recommend this chiropractic office to anyone and everyone!
