Pediatric Chiropractic Care
As the percentage of C-section rates, poor infant health and mortality rates climb in this country, Dr. Ashley feels that is is extremely important to have your child checked for subluxation as soon as possible after birth. Subluxation is a misalignment or lack of motion within the spine that results in stress and ill health in the body. The birth process is a very common cause of subluxation, especially a birth process that resulted in many interventions. Chiropractors are the only ones trained to detect and remove these subluxations, and doing so will help to ensure that ill health does not follow for your newborn.
As children continue to grow their spines undergo many forms of trauma as they learn to walk and crawl, play and become involved in activities. It has been said that a child undergoes enough falls in one day to put an adult in the hospital. Many of these things may again result in subluxations which can be easily detected and removed by a doctor of chiropractic.
Another essential part of our pediatric care is providing parents will all the information they need concerning health and wellness. From child nutrition, gut health, tips for home and at school, Dr. Ashley is committed to providing you with complete wellness education that gives you the answers you need.
If you feel your child may have any signs of subluxation, please contact us to find out what you can do about it. Posture is a very telling sign of the health of a child's spine, if your child has poor posture please do not hesitate to call us. Remember prevention is the best medicine and its better to start young so your child can grow and function at 100% and truly be well.
Prenatal Chiropractic Care
We understand that the health of pregnant woman is vitally important because the care we offer affects both mom and child. Proper nervous system and spinal function is crucial to the development of your baby and essential to the well-being and comfort of mom. The effects of chiropractic care during pregnancy are far-reaching and extend way beyond treating pain.
By ensuring that the pelvis and spine are in proper alignment and motion, chiropractic care helps to ensure that the developing baby has plenty of room to grow within the womb. By maintaining this proper alignment and motion throughout pregnancy, chiropractic care can also improve the ability of the expecting mother to have a safe and natural birth process - which is something that is extremely vital to the health of both the mom and baby.
The modern birth process is often one of the most traumatic events that a person will in endure in their life. Unfortunately today, many health care providers choose to look at pregnancy as a "medical condition" rather than the incredibly safe and natural process that it is. A woman's body is designed perfectly for the birth process, and difficulties typically only arise if mom is functioning at less than 100%.
