- Adjustment or spinal manipulation: The most common technique used to apply a controlled high-velocity short lever arm thrust and force to increase mobility and movement in restricted parts of the body.
- Mobilization: Gradual and gentle movement of the spine or soft tissues to relieve tension. There is no thrust involved, and it restores normal functioning to the problematic joints.
- Rehabilitation: Exercises and therapies aimed at strengthening tissues and preventing recurring issues. The emphasis is on improving strength, flexibility, and coordination.
- The sound is escaping nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and oxygen after releasing joint pressure.
- You cannot get arthritis from adjustments or cracking your fingers. Doctor Donald Unger was awarded the Ig Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2009 for proving this. As a child, his mom always told him that arthritis is inevitable if he cracks his knuckles. For 50 years, he cracked the knuckles on his left hand daily and did not crack his right hand. After 50 years, no arthritis or ailment was formed in either hand.
Yes, chiropractic adjustments can be done during and after pregnancy.
Pre & Post Natal Chiropractic Care: Chiropractic care can be used during pregnancy to alleviate back and wrist pain, which are common discomforts during pregnancy. A drug-free approach is often preferred during pregnancy to avoid potential risks to the developing fetus.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy focuses on providing gentle and safe adjustments to support the changes that occur in a woman’s body during pregnancy. It can help maintain optimal spinal alignment, reduce pain, and promote overall well-being during this crucial time.
No Medication Approach is always preferred during pregnancy. Chiropractic care offers a non-invasive, drug-free approach to addressing discomforts and pain during pregnancy. It can be a safe and effective option for pregnant women who want to avoid medication use during pregnancy.
It’s important to consult with a qualified chiropractor who has experience in providing chiropractic care during and after pregnancy to ensure safe and appropriate treatment.
Yes, chiropractic care, specifically the Webster Technique, can be used to address a breech presentation during pregnancy. The Webster Technique was developed by Dr. Larry Webster in 1978 and is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment for pregnant women.
The Webster Technique focuses on correcting sacral imbalances, balancing pelvic muscles and ligaments, and removing intrauterine constraint, which can help facilitate the baby to get into the best possible position for birth, which is the vertex, occiput anterior position (head down). Breech presentation, where the baby is positioned feet or buttocks first instead of head down, can be addressed through this technique.
By addressing the musculoskeletal imbalances and constraints, the Webster Technique has been reported to facilitate easier and safer deliveries for both the mother and the baby. It is a gentle and safe approach that does not involve any invasive procedures or medications, making it a viable option for pregnant women with breech presentation. It’s important to consult with a qualified chiropractor who is trained in the Webster Technique to ensure safe and appropriate treatment.
Yes, children and newborns can receive chiropractic care. The nervous system in a child’s body plays a crucial role in regulating various systems, including blood flow, brain function, and bone growth. Stress and misalignments of the spine can have a significant impact on a child’s overall health, behavior, and development. Chiropractic care for children focuses on correcting underlying issues before they become hardwired during development, providing support for a pain-free childhood.
Birth itself can be a traumatic experience for infants, with the intense pressure involved in both natural and Caesarean births potentially causing misalignments in the spine. Infants may have no way of communicating their pain other than crying. As they grow into toddlers, they may sleep in awkward positions, strain themselves, or experience falls that can further impact their spinal alignment.
As children grow, they may also develop poor posture due to factors such as sitting in front of screens for extended periods, playing contact sports, or carrying heavy backpacks. These habits can lead to misalignments in the spine that may be harder to correct as they become adults.
Chiropractic care for children is typically non-invasive and aims to address these issues early on to promote proper spinal alignment, overall health, and well-being. It’s important to consult with a qualified chiropractor who understands pediatric chiropractic care to ensure safe and appropriate treatment for children and newborns.
