Chiropractic Q&A

You’ve Got Questions - I’ve Got Answers

Why Chiropractic?

True health cannot be defined merely as the presence or absence of symptoms.

Chiropractic is the largest drug-free health profession in the world! 

As a chiropractor I offer unique solutions to today's health challenges. 

We all want to be healthy.  We spend much of our time and money making sure we take care of our heart, digestive system, skin, teeth, etc., but we forget about our MOST important system  

--> our Brain and Nervous System!!

The brain controls every organ, tissue, and cell in our body through the nervous system. 

And guess what?! Our nervous system is not only housed and protected by the spine, but it is intimately connected to it!

Therefore, when our spine isn't functioning properly it directly affects the nervous system, and the ability of our brain to communicate with our body. 

As you can imagine, when there is interference in the communication between the brain and body, things may start to decrease in function.  This interference, or what chiropractors call "subluxation", can happen as early as in-utero!  This is why chiropractic is vital for everyone, from newborns, to toddlers, to teens, adults, and beyond!

Why is prenatal Chiropractic important?

Chiropractic and pregnancy go together like peanut butter and jelly.

I feel that chiropractic care is vital for pregnant women.  I have had the opportunity to care for countless moms-to-be and have seen the benefits first hand when done by a knowledgeable prenatal chiropractor. 

I am certified and experienced in the Webster Technique, which is a specific pregnancy chiropractic technique.  Webster balances the pelvis by correcting joint movement along with reducing tension on the surrounding ligaments and muscles. 

Women who receive regular chiropractic care through their pregnancy experience:

  • an average of 25% shorter labors

  • optimal baby positioning

  • Improved overall comfort

  • Better sleep

  • Higher energy levels

  • Lower need for birth interventions

  • Faster recovery 

There are many more benefits to add to this list.  With chiropractic care, you CAN have the pregnancy and birth you've dreamed of.

Chiropractic for kids?!

Pediatric adjustments look VERY different than adult adjustments.

 Is chiropractic care safe for babies and kids?

This is a very common question, and my answer is always yes!  Just be sure you go to a chiropractor who is specialized, trained, and experienced in pediatric care.

Pediatric chiropractic is not only safe, but incredibly beneficial!

The brain and nervous system develop the most in the first two years of life.  This is when the infrastructure for how our body will function for the rest of our lives is formed.  This means that the MOST important time to get adjusted is within the first two years. 

How to know if your little one needs chiropractic.

Kiddos today are dealing with more emotional, toxic, and physical stressors than ever before.  All of these types of stressors affect our spine and nervous system.  Some signs to look for are:

  • Colic

  • Reflux/ Digestive problems

  • Difficulty latching

  • Difficulty sleeping

  • Anxious

  • Ear infections/ poor immune function

  • Poor concentration/ behavior

These are just a few of the most common symptoms kiddos might have.  The best way to know for sure is to set up an appointment and get their spine nervous system scanned. 

How many adjustments do I need?

This is a great question. Unfortunately there is no set answer. 

Each individual is unique, and no two people heal the same or have the same goals.  I pride myself on providing truly tailored and personalized care.  Therefore each plan and each adjustment are exactly what you need. 

Why In-Home Care?

Receiving chiropractic care has never been easier!

In my time in practice I've had the privilege of caring for many families.  A common theme was how stressful it was to get the kids packed up,  fight traffic, sit in the waiting room, get adjusted, then do it all over to get home.  It was almost counter-intuitive. 

In-home care eliminates all that stress.  I come to you at a convenient time.  It also allows me to assess you in your own environment, spend more quality time on your adjustment, and get you feeling better faster.
