Chiropractic

Q.
What is Chiropractic and how does it work?
A.

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism, controlled by the brain, spinal cord and nerves of the body.  If the spine (vertebra) becomes shifted out the normal position or ‘stuck’ this can irritate the joints, ligaments, muscles and most importantly, the nerves!  These spinal shifts can be the cause of many symptoms including pain, numbness/tingling and weakness.

How does Chiropractic work?
Chiropractic works by restoring spinal function with gentle safe chiropractic adjustments.  Improved spinal function allows for improved joints, ligament, and muscle functions.  Together this will help your nervous system function better with fewer or no symptoms. soon

Q.
Do children need Chiropractic care?  What about infants and babies?
A.

Do children need Chiropractic care?

That depends.  Since significant spinal trauma can occur at birth, many parents have their newborns checked. Naturally, Chiropractic adjusting procedures are adapted for the child’s spine. Many childhood health complaints can be traced back to a spinal shift.  Having the spine checked throughout your child’s growing years can help prevent health problems in adulthood. Parents often prefer Chiropractic care for their children because of its safe, non-invasive nature.  Search research articles on chiropractic and children by clicking the link.  

Do babies and infants need Chiropractic care? 
Even with today’s natural childbirth, some methods can cause spinal shift. Studies suggest that infantile colic, poor appetite, ear infections or erratic sleeping habits can be signs of spinal distress. Pediatric adjustments are gentle and safe, and offer a drug-less alternative that many parents prefer. Pediatricians commonly refer to Chiropractors for a natural approach for infant health problems. Great times to consider having your baby checked are: After the birth process. When the baby starts to hold his/her head up. When the baby sits up. When the baby starts to crawl. When the baby starts to stand. When the baby starts to walk.You do everything to ensure your baby’s health during pregnancy: you eat right, avoid drugs, smoking and drinking, take childbirth classes so you can have a natural, drug-free birth.  After the baby is born, you breastfeed knowing that it is the superior form of nutrition; you do everything you can to make sure your baby is healthy…but have you had the most important part of their health, their spine and nervous system, checked?

Q.
Can I see a chiropractor if I am pregnant?  
A.

Absolutely!  Pregnant women frequently have more comfortable and shortened active labour times.   Due to the inability to take medications, the natural safe approaches of Chiropractic is a logical choice for pregnant women for pain,  morning sickness, and other pregnancy relate issues.  More and more doulas,  midwives,  family doctors  ( maybe a good link) are referring to chiropractors because of the results.Pregnancy care is a very different form of chiropractic care.  Special tables, pillows and patient positioning must be used so Moms are comfortable.   Also there are techniques designed to help naturally turn a Breech baby called the Webster Technique.  Dr. Kevin has a special interest in caring for preganant women and children.  He has completed post graduate courses offered through the International Pediatric Chiropractic Association (ICPA) in this particular area and is trained in using the Webster Technique.
