HEALTHY SPINE, HEALTHY DEVELOPMENT.
HBCC focuses on gentle, specific chiropractic care for the entire family. We strive to help parents optimize their nervous system so they can be more present in all of life’s precious moments, be more patient in all of the crazy ones and confident in caring for the ones they love most.
The Webster chiropractic analysis is concerned with the structural relationship between the spine, pelvis, and nervous system. During pregnancy a woman’s body undergoes dramatic changes, both structurally, chemically (hormones), and emotionally. Chiropractic can help make pregnancy more comfortable, more enjoyable, and prepare the body for an easier, safer birth.
The body experiences very rapid change during pregnancy (increased weight gain, change in posture, and hormones which relax stabilizing ligaments). The changes are vital for growth and arrival of baby, but they can also interfere with other areas of life. Chiropractic care is a gentle, non-invasive approach to correcting and stabilizing the spine and pelvis. Completely safe throughout pregnancy, chiropractic care helps the body work better and ultimately, improve quality of life and potentially birth outcomes. After baby arrives, chiropractic is used to help the body recover and adapt to the new physical and emotional challenges of motherhood.
Most of our moms also get baby checked to determine if chiropractic can help with development and challenges like breastfeeding, digestion, comfort, sleep and immune function. We work with many infants with latching issues, constipation, reflux as well as post tongue and/or lip tie releases. For older children we check for proper primitive reflex integration.
The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association is a great resource, of research and articles that further explain the important role chiropractic plays in prenatal and pediatric care.
