CHIROPRACTIC FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
Chiropractic is primarily concerned with the relationship between the spine and nervous system. When your spine is moving normally and working the way it is suppose it allows your nervous system to work freely. That means your body can adapt to change and restore and regulate the functions of the body with less stress and discomfort.
THE WEBSTER TECHNIQUE
Pregnancy: Pre and Postnatal health
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment. First, the doctor determines misalignment or imbalances of the sacrum. A light force is applied to the sacrum for correction. The adjustment is gentle and effective in establishing pelvic alignment. Proper alignment of the pelvis allows for a safer and more comfortable birth for both mom and baby.
Birth trauma continues to be a severely under treated problem. Excessive force or complications during delivery can create spinal misalignments in the spinal column and compromise nervous system functioning.
Because most neurological development occurs within the first year of life, we encourage getting your baby checked ASAP!
Some conditions that respond well to chiropractic care includes:
- difficulty breastfeeding
- ear infections
Even if they do not have symptoms or pain, wellness spinal checks are a great way to ensure proper growth and development for your child.
A developing spine and nervous system
"It is easier to build strong children than to fix broken adults."
From "tech neck" to sport's injuries each individual patient will have a treatment tailored specifically for their needs.
Adjustments for children are safe, gentle and effective. We use a combination of gentle spinal adjustments and nutritional/lifestyle advice to maintain optimal health for your child.
Chiropractic care for kids enhances your child's health by releasing joints that are not moving properly or to their fullest capacity, with the goal of restoring natural nervous system functioning. Since total health is more than just freely moving joints, Dr. Gilbert also addresses proper nutrition, postural health, and other principles of true wellness to help parents raise healthy children.
Long term wellness care
Chiropractic care is focused on keeping the spine and nervous system balanced and working optimally. Misalignments in the spinal column lead to muscle imbalances, postural changes, unequal weight distribution and slower reaction times.
Dr. Gilbert takes the time to understand the root of your problem in order to provide the best and most effective treatment. Chiropractic care will be tailored to the individual patient, restoring normal range of motion in your spine as well as strengthening the surrounding muscles/ligaments/tendons to support and stabilize for proper body functioning.
Many adults seek chiropractic care for a "tune up" or if they suffer from early degenerative joint disease, postural stress, arthritis, episodic neck/lower back pain, or chronic pain from car accidents or sport's injuries.
Good news! You do not have to be in pain to be adjusted! Just as your car needs regular maintenance, so does your spine. You only get one spine so you might as well take care of it and give your body the longevity it deserves.
