The purpose of a chiropractic treatment is to find areas of your skeleton that are not moving properly and to restore normal movement. When a correction happens along the spine, not only is your structure aligned, but your functioning is improved as well. This is because improper movement of your spine leads to irritation of your nerve roots, which is like having static on a phone line. When your spine is moving properly, your brain is best able to communicate with your body, which leads to improved health in all areas of your body. Chiropractors most frequently treat "musculo-skeletal" complaints. For example: sore backs, tight muscles, sprains and strains, headaches, and repetitive stress injuries like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or tendonitis. Many people begin treatment for problems like these, but end up finding relief from other conditions such as asthma, allergies, digestive disorders, sleep disorders, and fatigue conditions because their nervous system becomes "tuned-up." Pregnancy is a natural and miraculous condition. And sometimes it’s uncomfortable! As a chiropractor, I safely treat many of the complaints that commonly occur during pregnancy, such as back pain, sciatica, and carpal tunnel syndrome. The Webster Technique, a pregnancy-specific form of chiropractic care, can prevent breech position by increasing room for the baby and the uterus. Using the Webster Technique, the pelvis is aligned and the ligaments relaxed so that you and your baby have the most possible room. This encourages a breech baby to shift to the optimum birth position and enhances the comfort of an already properly positioned baby.After delivery, the hormone relaxin is still making ligaments soft. This increases your vulnerability to lower back and pelvic joint misalignment and pain. The body usually heals itself after pregnancy but when treatment is necessary, it is easily accomplished at this time because of your body's increased pliability.
